25 years have passed since Rowan Atkinson first introduced the world to the affable man-child Mr Bean and he marked the show's milestone anniversary with a celebration at Buckingham Palace, London.

The 60-year-old actor-comedian rode up to the London landmark in character, atop his famous 1976 British Leyland Mini 1000, reported Entertainment Weekly.

The arrival recreated a memorable scene from the show, in which Mr Bean packs his vehicle so full of shopping that he needs to find an alternative way to drive it.

The car had a #MrBean25 hashtag commemorating the show, which ran from 1990 to 1995 and inspired a spin-off animated series and two feature films.
