Frank Cottrell-Boyce, a novelist and screenwriter who co-wrote sketches starring the Queen, said he stood up to remind the British people that “we have a good thing in common.”

The Queen brought a smile to the nation in June 2022 when she appeared in the clip with the jam-loving bear after inviting him to Buckingham Palace for dinner with her.

The monarch, known for having tea every day, revealed during their exchange that he shared her enthusiasm for jam sandwiches.

Opening her bag and taking out a sandwich, she said, ‘For later’ with a smile.

Writing for The Guardian about the late monarch’s appearance in the afternoon tea sketch, Cottrell-Boyce said the symbolism of Paddington being “welcomed with tea and good manners” represented a “strong set of values”.

He added that in an era of division, the Queen represented a unity that is now under threat.

The writer revealed that after the Paddington Bear sketch aired, a conspiracy theory circulated that the queen’s appearance in the clip was a profoundly false creation and that the monarch had not actually starred in anything.

He concluded by saying that he was “grateful” for how the Queen used her “peculiar power” to remind people that “we shared something good”.

Following the monarch’s passing, royal fans touched by her sketch with Paddington Bear left teddy bears and even jam sandwiches outside Buckingham Palace amid tributes.

The monarch also starred in a skit alongside Daniel Craig as James Bond in 2012, which aired at the opening ceremony of the 2012 London Olympics.

Mr Cottrell-Boyce revealed that the Queen “put on herself” for the cameo where she “dropped by parachute” into the Olympic Stadium in Stratford, London.

However, the novelist and screenwriter revealed that the original plan had been for an actress to play her role.

Producer Tracey Seaward attended a meeting at Buckingham Palace to find out what clothes the Queen would wear to the opening ceremony so she could dress the actress in the same outfit.

However, he wrote that the Queen’s dressmaker, Angela Kelly, said: “Oh, she wants to be in it.”

The writer said the clip became one of the Queen’s “defining moments” as she stunned the nation with her cameo that was meant to entertain “for one night only.”

The monarch’s appearance in the sketch delighted onlookers and royal fans as she turned to greet him at Buckingham Palace with the phrase, “Good evening, Mr Bond.”

The pair then walked the halls of the Palace with the Corgis before boarding a helicopter bound for the Olympic Stadium in Stratford.

When the helicopter arrived at the stadium, the Queen jumped out of the helicopter and opened a Union Jack-printed parachute, before walking down the steps of the stadium with Prince Philip to sit down.
