Prince Charles 'considering' a role in the new James Bond movie

Prince Charles is reportedly considering a role in the new James Bond movie.

The 70-year-old was said to have been offered a cameo when he visited the set and met Daniel Craig a few weeks ago.

If he does take the role, the Prince of Wales would follow in the footsteps of his mum, The Queen, who had a brief part in DannyBoyle's tribute to the film ahead of the 2012 Olympics.

A source told The Sun:

"They loved the buzz around the Queen’s appearance alongside Daniel Craig and think Charles could top even that.

"He is the epitome of everything British, perfect for a cameo role and Bond fans worldwide would absolutely love it.

“When he visited the film set a few weeks ago it was discussed. Now he is considering it.”

An insider said that Prince Charles joining the film "could be just what the movie needs", after it has been hit with issues since filming began earlier this year - including Daniel Craig injuring his ankle.

And while they admitted that any "confirmation of a cameo is likely to be kept top, top secret," a source told the publication how a role in the 25th Bond would be "particularly appropriate" for Prince Charles.

They said:

“Charles is a patron of both the British Film Institute and the intelligence services, so a role in the 25th Bond would be particularly appropriate for him.

“Any confirmation of a cameo is likely to be kept top, top secret. But if Charles doesn’t go for it Harry and Wills could be in producers sights next.”
