‘I would follow you anywhere ma’am. Out of any helicopter.’

The star referenced the sketch he filmed with the Queen, which saw him take on the role of James Bond, with the pair leaving Buckingham Palace in a helicopter for the Opening Ceremony of the 2012 London Games.

In an iconic moment, a stunt double leapt from the helicopter as if they were the monarch herself, who then dramatically appeared at her seat in the Olympic Stadium. 

Music legends led the BBC’s Party At The Palace concert on Saturday night, with Sir Rod Stewart putting on an upbeat performance, with Queen and Adam Lambert, and Elton John also putting on sensational shows.
