Queen receives honorary Bafta

The Queen has received an honorary Bafta in recognition of her support for British film and television.

In a ceremony at Windsor Castle Bafta's chairman paid tribute to the Queen, describing her as the most memorable Bond girl yet.

Sir Kenneth Branagh, who presented the award, referred to the Queen's 'sensational appearance' alongside James Bond at the Olympics opening ceremony.

He said that if the Queen should wish to venture further into the British film industry there were plenty of people with scripts offering marvellous parts.
