The whole world was taken by surprise and stared in amazement and applauded when they saw Queen Elizabeth II drop from the skies by a parachute and descend to the ground for the opening ceremony of the 2012 London Olympics.

However, it was not the real Queen they saw but a ‘duplicate’ named Gary Connery who was dressed in a peach cocktail dress which was a duplicate of what the Queen wore.

The ‘duplicate’ Queen was accompanied by Daniel Craig who has played the role of James Bond 007.

This has been reported in news.sky.com of dated 28th of July 2012.

It had taken Gary Connery several months to perfect the total show and he had to practice jumps from different heights and locations.

And – after he landed he walked into Buckingham Palace and then the real Queen walked out with the Duke of Edinburgh.

The unique event took the audience by surprise.
