In the clip, a digitally drawn bear visits the Queen, who has been on the throne for seventy years. They drink a cup of tea and the princess takes a marmalade sandwich, Paddington’s favorite snack, from her handbag.
Then they tap the teacups with their teaspoons to the famous rhythm of the beat we will Rock You The Queen of British Formation. A crowd at a concert takes on the beat, after which the Queen plays the song.
The clip was widely shared on social media at the time and now after the death of Queen Elizabeth. Many children leave marmalade sandwiches in the gardens in memory of the Queen. The park management requires citizens to commit to placing flowers or other biodegradable mementos. Sandwiches are often packaged in plastic bags.
After the film was released, interest in Paddington’s bear grew exponentially. In addition to books, the two partially animated films from 2014 and 2017 are also very popular. A third part is in the works.
