I also spotted 2 framed pictures of Queen Margrethe and Crown Prince Frederik behind the Queen, near the fireplace, whilst she was holding audience with David Cameron.

I watched this yesterday and really enjoyed the programme. I particularly liked the sound bites and interviews from a wide range of people which gave the programme a more balanced feel. The footage inside the Queen's sitting room at Balmoral made me smile with its homely comforts and basic convector heater in the fireplace. I am just old enough to remember the original and slightly controversial Royal Family documentary series and this is definitely one of the best royal documentaries since then - interesting that neither were made by the BBC.

I was surprised that James Bond (Daniel Craig) didn't bow his head to the Queen during the palace skit.

More from an article at ABC news:

"Only two of her beloved corgis were used during the skit, 13-year-old Monty and 9-year-old Holly. The queen’s real page who has been by her side for the past 20 years was filmed escorting Daniel Craig to her apartment and then through the palace." (I was wondering if that man was "real" or an actor.)

Regarding her dress, it "had to be a color that did not represent any of the participating Olympic nations. The result was a peach dress with a few embellishes including some lace detailing and beads with a pleated skirt."
