Between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s PDA and Prince William’s proclivity for motorcycles, the younger generation of royals has pushed the envelope on well-established Windsor decorum. But it turns out even Queen Elizabeth has lived life on the wild side a time or two.
Royal historian for The Crown, Robert Lacey, chatted with PureWow exclusively about the release of The Crown season two on Blu-ray and DVD and shared one of Queen Elizabeth’s most out-of-character moments. When asked if Queen Liz had ever broken decorum, Lacey answered, “I think the most surprising moment was when she met James Bond (Daniel Craig) before the 2012 Olympic Games and I saw her jumping out of a helicopter.” Shocked? Then watch this.
