Dame Mirren Meets British Troops
Troops were drafted in to assist security guards at Games' venues in the U.K. capital, and The Queen star was full of praise for their efforts when she met them at an event in Wapping, where she lives.
She says, "As a resident, I have loved having the troops here. It has been great to see Tobacco Dock full of people and we have felt so close to what was happening in the Olympic park. It has been a very special event."
The London sporting extravaganza officially ended on Sunday (12Aug12) with a star-studded concert, featuring stars including the Spice Girls, The Who and One Direction.
