The Queen’s James Bond helicopter stunt at the 2012 Olympics has been voted the best moment of her 61-year reign.
The monarch took part in the sketch with 007 actor Daniel Craig during the event’s opening ceremony, directed by Danny Boyle, and her apparent parachute jump has topped a poll marking her 87th birthday on Sunday (21.04.13).
Card company Hallmark conducted the survey and have created a giant birthday card containing tributes from Twitter for Her Majesty, which was delivered to Buckingham Palace in London this week.
A spokeswoman said: “Bringing the tradition of sending a card together with Twitter was really exciting.
“We’re thrilled with how the card looks and we hope Her Majesty likes it too.”
Other moments and signature traits which have made the list include last year’s Diamond Jubilee concert – which saw the likes of Madness and Sir Paul McCartney perform to a crowd of thousands outside her iconic home – and the stiff-wristed royal wave.
