Victoria Derbyshire was fronting BBC Breakfast’s Platinum Jubilee coverage on Sunday morning outside Buckingham Palace. Thousands of people gathered around the palace on Saturday night to celebrate the Queen’s 70-year reign on the throne. While the monarch was not able to attend the event, she managed to make an impressive appearance alongside Paddington Bear which left Victoria “really emotional”.
Victoria, who was interviewing pageant master Adrian Evans, was reflecting on the Platinum Jubilee celebrations when he said the monarch “acted so beautifully”.
Victoria said: “She really knocked it out of the park – she really did. She is good at acting and she clearly, it would appear, has a wicked sense of humour.”
The broadcaster admitted she was moved by the Queen’s skit with Paddington Bear, adding: “Paddington Bear saying ‘Thank you ma’am’ for everything is even now making me feel really emotional.
“It’s bizarre, isn’t it? It’s so British, a bear and the actual queen. What the heck?”
