Queen's 007 Olympic Mission So Secret Even Princes Didn't Know

Even Prince William and Prince Harry were kept in the dark.

They told the BBC on Friday had no idea that their grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, would play a cameo role in the Olympic opening ceremony.

The sedate, octogenarian monarch surprised many Britons by appearing in a film played at the Danny Boyle-directed opener last week.

The short tongue-in-cheek film shows the queen being picked up by James Bond (played by Daniel Craig) at Buckingham Palace before being whisked aboard a helicopter and flown toward the Olympic Stadium.

As the film ended, two people leapt from a helicopter above the stadium, suggesting that the queen herself was floating down to open the games.

An Internet video of the queen-James Bond piece has been widely viewed.
