I thought for a split second that the Queen was going to parachute in. I panicked!

This was a totally unnecessary thing at the opening ceremony.
Completely agree, that IMO was tacky. Those should have been two separate parts of the game. The arrival of The Queen should not be laughed at.

Archbishop of Canterbury sat there, interesting.
You seem to be a particularly tough critic, judging by the majority of your posts.

Not what I would have ever expected, but for a younger generation of which there are millions, what an entrance for their Queen. If there should ever be an occasion for the Queen to agree to such a performance, then surely this is it.

No doubt her family had a good chuckle with her about it.

This was a totally unnecessary thing at the opening ceremony and didn't suit to my image about the Queen at all.
well, to me it looked like she was jumping in the video? ^^

I meant that the helicopter didn't land at the stadium. The helicopter and right after it the national anthem, I don't like it at all.

Must be thrilling for the children from Great Ormond Hospital to participate in the opening.

Everyone in my house was laughing and clapping at the bit with the Queen. Lighten up, does anyone seriously think that the Queen would've taken part if she wasn't comfortable with it?

Same here - everyone loved that bit.
My mother thought she actually jumped. She looked shocked and asked "How old is she again"? I told her the Queen always arrives like that.

Great Ormond Street, what a wonderful hospital and charity. So lovely of them to include the children.

J.K. Rowling reading excerpts from Peter Pan!
I'm guessing there is going to be some Peter Pan activity now.

I agree. No one man handles the Queen or makes decisions for her, of which she is directly involved.

Yes, i was happy to see HM's beloved corgis been part of the show in Olympic - I like that they plan a special entry for HM. For a moment, I thought she will land in that helicopter!! Only thing is that she seems very serious, how nice if she could really smile when she came in.

Just imagine HM have to dress up in the same dress and the head dress for the video shoot!!

Agree. The beginning was a bit crowded (too much history), but looks brilliant now.

Me too. He was the only film character I was really afraid of in childhood.
The London Symphony Orchestra are performing the 'Chariots of Fire'.
