The British stuntman who parachuted into the London Olympics opening ceremony as James Bond has been killed in an accident in the Swiss Alps while flying a special wing suit.
Online extreme sports broadcaster Epic TV says Mark Sutton died during a gathering it had organized involving 20 wing suit pilots who were being filmed as they jumped from helicopters.
Swiss police confirmed that a 42-year-old Briton died Wednesday in a fall near Trient in the Valais region.
The 2012 Summer Games opening ceremony memorably included Sutton as a Bond double jumping with another stuntman dressed as a skydiving Queen Elizabeth II.

Little George Alexander Louis has quite a special name – and it was chosen with love and a nod to history by his parents, William and Kate.
Third in line to the throne, the new arrival will be known as His Royal Highness Prince George of Cambridge.
His parents announced their 2-day-old's moniker shortly after his 87-year-old paternal great-grandmother, The Queen, visited the family at Kensington Palace Wednesday – when, PEOPLE reported, it was believed she would be discussing possible names.
The chosen name carries a lot of sentimental meaning to William's granny – it was the name picked by her beloved father when he became King George VI in 1936. His real name was Albert, and his story was told in 2010's Oscar-winning Best Picture The King's Speech.
"George was a bit of a giveaway – it was bandied around so much and we expected it," Joe Little, managing editor of Majesty magazine tells PEOPLE. "And it is a nice tribute to the Queen's father and grandfather [George V]."

And now for great-granny!
Baby Cambridge woke up in a palace Wednesday and soon afterwards had a visit from a queen. And not just any monarch – this was proud Queen Elizabeth, meeting her great-grandson and third in line to her throne.
The visit, to Nottingham Cottage at Kensington Palace, was the latest for Prince William and Kate's newborn son, following those of his grandparents, who saw him shortly before he left St. Mary's Hospital in Paddington, west London, Tuesday.
The Queen visited the cottage – the couple's temporary home while their main digs Apartment 1a are being renovated – for about half an hour.
She was seen smiling proudly as she passed reporters at the palace entrance in her distinctive green Bentley.

The Royal Family have scores of traditions and precedents. But when it comes to the names of their babies, they prefer to keep you guessing.
Queen Elizabeth waited a full month back in 1948 before revealing Prince Charles's name.
In 1982, Prince Charles and Princess Diana waited a week to tell the world that they'd chosen William as the name of their firstborn – but two years later, they revealed Prince Harry's name the day he left the hospital.

Hopefully one royal arrival will beget another.
Queen Elizabeth arrived at Buckingham Palace in an SUV on Monday, while Kate is in labor at St. Mary's Hospital.
Last week, the 87-year-old monarch – who will be the baby's great grandmother – told children in Cumbria in northern England that while she didn't have a preference for a boy or a girl, she "would very much like it to arrive. I'm going on holiday. No sign yet."

No, the royal baby hasn't really arrived yet, but our favorite look-alikes have already had their baby's first photo shoot – and the results are hilariously fantastic!
As the world awaits real news from St. Mary's hospital in London where the Duchess of Cambridge is in labor with Prince William by her side, these photos imagine what life will be like for them in the coming days and weeks.

For once, the much-photographed Kate and William managed to avoid the cameras, when the soon-to-be mother was driven to the hospital from Kensington Palace early Monday morning – though officials will not say if William was behind the wheel.
What they would say is that the royals arrived at St. Mary's Hospital before 6 a.m., while photographers on the scene say that the convoy was spotted around 5:30 a.m.
William and Kate and their entourage drove in two vehicles – a sedan and a town car – on side roads behind the hospital's private Lindo Wing before entering the building through the entrance to the Mary Stanford wing.
It's only two or three steps across a small sidewalk from the car to the hospital door.

First it was Camilla hinting that the royal baby will be here by the end of the week. Now, it's Queen Elizabeth who's gently nudging mum-to-be Kate, who is expected to give birth any day now.
The 87-year-old monarch was talking to children in Cumbria in northern England, when she was asked if she hopes the royal baby will be a boy or a girl. "I don't think I mind," she said, before telling the children, "I would very much like it to arrive. I'm going on holiday. No sign yet." (The Queen heads to her Balmoral estate in the Scottish highlands at the end of next week.)
But while her family – and the rest of the world, it seems – hang on for baby news, the couple at the heart of what's been dubbed the #GreatKateWait on Twitter try to remain cool and calm as temperatures rise amid a London heat wave.

With a private charter helicopter already waiting on the grounds of their home in North Wales, it's clear that Prince William's staff and Buckingham Palace are well prepared should Kate go into labor early.
But William, 31, is also surely going over last-minute preparations of his own, to be sure nothing is left to chance when the big day arrives.
Among his priorities:

Prince William and Kate's much-anticipated child will have his or her own special title, to be bestowed upon the new arrival come naming time.
Baby Cambridge will be a prince or princess, Queen Elizabeth has decreed – making it HRH Prince or Princess "Name" of Cambridge.
The child will take his or her title from the household that was created when William, 31, was made a Duke at his 2011 wedding.
