Her Royal Majesty made a surprise appearance at the London Olympic Opening Cermonies….

…after being escorted by Daniel Craig/James Bond himself:

… she then parachuted into the stadium:

… where she sat and watched in a serious manner:

    Very Funny!

  • Kourtney


  • Zack

    She didn’t even smile! Just because she is the Queen of England means that she can’t smile? 

    • Ela09ah

      Don’t be ignorant. Queen of great Britain and northern island, not just England.

      • Ela09ah

        Ireland. Damn phone.

        Don’t be rude, you understood what he meant. And TECHNICALLY he’s right, she IS the Queen of England. She’s just also Queen of other places.

        • Zack

          Thank you, Brooke.

          And to Ela, you had no reason to call me ignorant. Rude.

      • Andrew_ww

        The Queen of England and Northern Ireland and the Commonwealth Realms. That includes Canada (here), Pakistan, Australia, New Zealand, and more.

    hahahahhaha the ‘owning all those countries’ memes were hilarious!!

  • http://hunyumstan.tumblr.com/ hunyum

    Oh she was epic in this, especially when she couldn’t care about the parade and was more interested in her nails!

  • DreamNox58

    Amazing.  I love The Hunger Games one of course.

  • Daughter of Eve

    HAHA! those meme’s were awesome. I was joking with my brother that the Queen had said in Bane’s voice “let the games begin”. That would be a fun meme. LOVED the opening ceremony, defo filled with pride.

  • Rayeofsunshine

    C’Mon guys. If we took our Grandma to these events, they might not have a great time and look the same.

    • PotionWillow207

      It doesn’t matter. She’s a public figure and after as many years as she’s been queen she should be able to fake it.

      • BlueBronze

        Give her a break, she may be queen but she’s also an 86 year old woman. We’re lucky she didn’t fall asleep during the ceremony. My grandmother probably would have.

      • http://twitter.com/Tran_Nagwaian Tran Nguyen

        She was actually trained as a child to be serious and keep her emotions in check the time. It’s stayed with her and not really her fault. Hence all that drama after Diana died. My history teacher went on about that, and he pretty much dared us to find a picture where she’s smiling. (They’re plenty, but she’s definitely not completely open with her emotions)

        • PotionWillow207

          But she doesn’t have to frown. Her country is hosting the Olympics. She should at least make an effort to look pleasant or neutral.

          • Mrs_Badcrumble

            Why do people think she has to fake emotions? She is who she is and her personality is a result of all her experiences. Would it be better if she forced herself to smile all the time? For me that’s much worse… And it was a long ceremony, one is bound to look serious through some of it, specially at her age.

          • PotionWillow207

            Ask anyone who is any any profession that puts you in the public eye like this: There is no “she is who she is.” When you are at a public event promoting your country you are queen first, yourself maybe second. She is fully aware of that as she spent countless years preaching that to Princess Di, and I’m sure to Kate as well.

    The David Tennant one is the best. I love it.

    It only takes a couple hours to make a new meme :P

  • lego5ker

    ya the queen at the olympics in london not a surprise. She’s the head of state, the head of state always opens the games in their own country. 

  • Mad

    hehe some of these are really funny!

  • Franko3

    “Now you’re just some country that I used to own.” Clever Goyte reference. hehe

  • http://twitter.com/Merina2 Merina

    She is wonderful :)

  • http://buzzhub.tk/ Lucien

    She was probably asleep. They propped her eyes open with little threads.

  • Guest

    This is not nice. She’s in the old age. You’d look the same when you’re old. When your face muscles go all droopy. I think she was fantastic allowing to be in the opening scene like this.

    • PotionWillow207

      This isn’t droopy face muscles. This is her actually frowning. You can go online and find pictures of her with a neutral expression and just relaxed. It doesn’t look like this.

    • Mrs_Badcrumble

      I agree. Considering her age and traditional personality, I thought it was awesome she participated the way she did. That video with James Bond and the parachute thing was pretty cool and a nice twist to her appearance. And the fact that she assisted to the whole thing must have been tiring. I’m not even British and I was thrilled with her!

    Andrew Sims…. <3

    Is it just me or does she look like an old Umbridge? lol

  • Guest

    This is offensive and disrespectful and I thought the queen looked suitably touched by the ceremony. It must be difficult when you know everyone is watching you and picking apart all your reactions. I was extremely proud of and impressed by everyone involved in the ceremony.

    • Liderc

      Welcome to the internet. 

      • guest

        trolololololol :)

    • Mackenzie Etaylor

      I think it’s offensive when your country comes out and you are looking at your nails. And if I knew that everyone’s watching me I might try to give a flying fuck…. Guest are you the queen?

    • PotionWillow207

      Since when does picking at your nails mean that you are suitably touched?

  • http://twitter.com/20619T Craig Thomson

    I love our Queenie, she was visibly moved during the ceremony as well. But my god, she could smile, just to show she can!

    • Andrew_ww

      She did smile if you watched, just not in this one frame of the video.

  • http://twitter.com/ClaudioCatino CCMASTER_01

    ‘I wanted david tennant’ lOl rofl!!!!

  • Randy

    I work with a british guy who describes her as always looking like a bulldog with a wasp in her mouth. Crazy Brits lol

  • Dxxieneixwkoskoehcrhgfb

    I thought it was really funny when Britain came out during the parade and when it cut to the queen, she was looking at her nails.

  • Arial_29

    Her entrance was so boring, as was the entire opening ceremonies.

  • Dennis

    It is her majesty not her royal majesty

  • HPForever3 :)

    Lol, is it sad that the James Bond and Queen of England video/parachuting took second in the highlights of the evening to JKR’s appearance and Voldemort actually making it to the Opening Ceremonies of the summer Olympics? :P 

  • http://twitter.com/BeccaPhoenix16 Rebecca Feliciano

    I wanted David too

  • GleeHaterExceptForDarrenCriss

    people who complain about her not smiling just don’t get the queen and her image. she doesn’t need to be an open book for people to know that she appreciates what is being done for her. as a brit, i prefer that she is classy and quiet about her feelings and not faking anything. the queen is supposed to serve the people and not let her own emotions take control. i see how you could think that she is not being grateful but she isn’t a celebrity and was brought up to be taciturn and put the the feelings of others before her own. I thinks the memes are hilarious but the comments seem pretty demanding of an 86 year old being made to sit in a stadium for 5 hours.

    • akacj7

      agreed. has anyone ever met an average 86-year old?? this is par for the course. i’ll cut her some slack even though she’s the queen of england.

  • Glaciusx

    She’s the Kristen Stewart of England. 

  • akacj7

    Gold – “Look at all these countries…”
    Silver – “May the odds be ever in your favor.”Bronze – “Where’s Adele?”


    where was elton john? He sang at Diana’s funeral, and last I heard that was a big deal
