To his own surprise Frank Cottrell Boyce has helped some of the best loved images of the monarchy - including the moment James Bond helped the Queen to jump out of a helicopter into the Olympic Stadium. He shares his thoughts on how we create, use and abuse soft power, and the difference between patriotism and nationalism.

Frank Cottrell Boyce is a screenwriter and novelist known for his children’s fiction. Born in Bootle, Liverpool, he has won two major British awards for children’s books - the 2004 Carnegie Medal for Millions and the 2012 Guardian Prize for The Unforgotten Coat. He was also the writer for the 2012 Summer Olympics opening ceremony in London alongside Danny Boyle.
