What I think is totally awesome is that Daniel Craig said that the Queen was supposed to look up straight away, but she improvised the letter writing and completely blanked him, so the awkward standing there was completely realisitic. The Queen ignored James Bond because she was ACTING.
You hear that? Our Queen is not just a Queen she is an actress, Bond girl, has tea and scones with Ten, and hired Sherlock Holmes.
It’s hard to maintain that military composure when one’s granny is inspecting!
I love how all the others are like ‘It’s the Queen I need to stand straighter and be more professional than I’ve ever been in my entire life’ and William and Harry are just like ‘lol hi Gran!’
I like to think she tries to make them laugh.
Reblogging because SHE’S ACTUALLY SMILING
Also Harry’s face.
this is still the best post on tumblr, forever.
Actor and director Kenneth Branagh has been knighted by the Queen in a ceremony at Buckingham Palace.
Famous for roles from Shakespeare to the lead in the BBC’s Swedish detective series Wallander, he is being honoured for services to drama and the community of Northern Ireland.
He spent his early years in Northern Ireland, where he is now honorary President of NICVA supporting all the organisations in the voluntary and community sector.
The 51-year-old, who was born in Belfast, said it was “a great honour and a great privilege”.
I really believed that he had been knighted ages ago.
