SIMON FARNABY, ALUMNUS, STARS IN SURPRISE SKETCH WITH THE QUEEN AND PADDINGTON BEAR
We were thrilled to see Simon Farnaby, former student, playing the role of the disapproving footman in the Queen’s wonderfully heart-warming sketch with Paddington Bear, which was shown ahead of the Platinum Jubilee concert.
Simon is well acquainted with Paddington as he co-wrote the film Paddington 2 and also appeared as a security guard in both of the films. In addition, the comedian and writer is a long-standing member of the Horrible Histories troupe.
If you missed the hilarious sketch which shows the Queen and Paddington Bear meeting for a chaotic cream tea at Buckingham Palace then please follow this link to the BBC’s website.
