PRINCES Wil­liam and Harry shouted “Go Granny!” at the Queen when she “jumped” out of a he­li­copter in the Olympic open­ing cer­e­mony.

Her Majesty took on her first act­ing role in se­cret as she was joined by James Bond at Buckingham Palace.

Lon­don 2012 chair­man Lord Coe the stunt at the £27m cur­tain­raiser was kept se­cret even from the Prince of Wales, Prince Harry and Prince Wil­liam, who sat as­ton­ished at the Olympic Sta­dium, Lord Coe re­vealed.

“None of them knew about the Queen’s in­volve­ment, so when the se­quence be­gan, with the cor­gis rac­ing up what were ob­vi­ously very fa­mil­iar stairs, Prince Charles looked at me and laughed ner­vously.

“When the film cut to the shot of the royal back, he as­sumed it was the lady who does the im­per­son­ations.

“But the mo­ment she turned around he be­gan roar­ing with laugh­ter. His sons were be­side them­selves, and as she started her ‘de­scent’ shouted out ‘Go Granny!’”
