London: Sir Roger Moore praised the Queen for starring alongside Daniel Craig in a series of scenes filmed at Buckingham Palace, which was broadcast during London Olympics’ opening ceremony in July.

The starring performance by the Queen in the sporting event marked the Bond film franchise’s 50th anniversary.

“Wasn’t she marvellous? What a tribute to Bond in its 50th year, to be recognised by the Queen in agreeing to do that,” the Telegraph quoted him as saying.

“In that first scene, with Bond standing there when you saw the back of her head, I thought to myself ‘I wonder who they have got to double for the Queen?’ and then when she turned around, I just thought wow’,” he added.
