Paddington Bear has infinite gratitude for the belated Queen Elizabeth the second.
After the British monarch passed away on September 8 at the age of 96, the beloved figure’s official Twitter account shared a few words in her honor. “Thank you ma’am,” read the September 8 message. “For everything.”
The note written to the Queen contained the same five words Paddington mentioned at the end of a video he starred in alongside Her Majesty earlier this year.
To celebrate their platinum anniversary in June, Paddington and Queen Elizabeth II (with a little CGI help, of course) got together to enjoy tea. In the sweet video, which was also shown outside Buckingham Palace during the June 4 celebrations, Paddington and the Queen open up about their love for the bear’s favorite snack: a jam sandwich.
Paddington’s touching recall serves as one of many tributes penned by figures around the world who have honored the Queen’s legacy.
