You're reading: Queen tours Olympic Park after debut as Bond Girl

LONDON — Queen Elizabeth II is touring Olympic Park the day after the Opening Ceremony production stunned audiences by using a video to portray her as a parachuting Bond Girl.

The queen got a bird’s eye view Saturday of the Olympic complex atop the 377-foot (115-meter) Orbit sculpture beside the stadium.

Her husband Prince Philip and London Mayor Boris Johnson accompanied her as she rode two floors up the sculpture’s elevator to meet designer Anish Kapoor.

Dressed in a royal blue silk dress, crepe coat and matching hat, Britain’s 86-year-old monarch remarked at the views of the London skyline and countryside 20 miles (32 kilometers) away.

The queen wore a brooch given to her in 1948, the last time London hosted the Olympics and four years before her accession to the throne.
