While The Queen was not in attendance at the Buckingham Palace event, she still managed to delight viewers with an unexpected appearance in a humorous sketch with Paddington Bear, where they sat down to afternoon tea together.

The scene showed Paddington telling The Queen that he always kept his favourite snack, a marmalade sandwich, to hand as she replied: "So do I."

She then produced a marmalade sandwich from her handbag, saying: "I keep mine in here. For later."
