It appears the all-new Bond 25 film is getting the royal treatment.
Prince Charles is in talks to play a guest role in the upcoming James Bond movie, according to The Sun. The 70-year-old royal was reportedly offered a cameo after he visited the London set and met the cast and crew—including Daniel Craig—back in June.
Although we don’t know if Prince Charles accepted the role, it wouldn’t be the first time a member of the royal family teamed up with the iconic spy.
In 2012, his mom, Queen Elizabeth, appeared in a spoof during the opening ceremony for the Olympic Games. The clip featured James Bond (Craig) kidnapping the monarch from Buckingham Palace and then parachuting to the ground…with her stunt double.
“They loved the buzz around the queen’s appearance alongside Daniel Craig and think Charles could top even that,” a source told the outlet. “He is the epitome of everything British, perfect for a cameo role and Bond fans worldwide would absolutely love it.”
While Craig is set to reprise his role as 007 in Bond 25, we recently learned that Lashana Lynch will play a new secret agent, who takes over his iconic code name. The movie also stars Rami Malek, Billy Magnussen, David Dencik, Dali Benssalah, Ralph Fiennes, Rory Kinnear, Ben Whishaw, Naomie Harris and Jeffrey Wright.
Ready? Set. ACTION. Bond 25 will hit theaters in April 2020.
