Mystery solved: Queen Elizabeth II shares secret with Paddington
Now we know what is in
Queen Elizabeth II
The long-time mystery was solved Saturday when the British monarch made the
second star turn of her career, appearing in a mini-movie to kick off a concert celebrating
her 70 years on the throne
The sketch featured the queen having a cream tea with British national treasure Paddington Bear at Buckingham Palace.
After drinking all the tea and destroying the cakes, the duffle-coat wearing bear
from deepest Peru told Elizabeth how he always had a reserve supply of
marmalade sandwiches with him, lifting up his red hat to reveal his favorite treat.
The scene recalled the moment Elizabeth appeared as a Bond girl in a short film for the opening ceremony of the 2012 London Olympics.
“Her majesty is well known for her sense of humor, so it should be no surprise that she decided to take part in tonight’s sketch,” the palace said.
