The Agency is absolutely delighted to see that Michael Bond‘s iconic and much loved character Paddington Bear took an incredibly prominent role in The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations.

Appearing in a charming video segment with Her Majesty The Queen, the Bear from Darkest Peru was recorded having tea and a marmalade sandwich with the monarch in short film which aired at the beginning of the live ‘Platinum Party at the Palace’ concert.
