Prince Charles has reportedly been offered a cameo role in the next “James Bond” movie – and apparently, he’s “considering it.”
The royal has been in talks with producers about making an appearance in the upcoming film, “Bond 25,” after visiting the set back in June, The Sun reports.
“They loved the buzz around the Queen’s appearance alongside Daniel Craig and think Charles could top even that,” a source close to the production team apparently told the newspaper.
“He is the epitome of everything British, perfect for a cameo role and Bond fans worldwide would absolutely love it.”
Charles was given a special tour of Pinewood Studios outside London where he posed for photos with the stars of the film. He seemed to fit in with the cast perfectly, if this photo is anything to go by.
“When he visited the film set a few weeks ago it was discussed,” the source added. “Now he is considering it.”
Buckingham Palace is yet to confirm the reports, but it wouldn’t be entirely surprising if the rumors are true.
After all, the Queen starred alongside Craig for a special homage to the movie during the Opening Ceremony for the 2012 Olympics in London.
A video clip saw Craig collect Her Majesty at Buckingham Palace before heading to Olympic Park, where a stunt double posing as the royal parachuted to the ground.
It also wouldn’t be the first time the prince has appeared on screens, as he previously made a cameo in an episode of UK soap opera “Coronation Street” in 2000.
Another source told The Sun that “producers are desperate to sign him.
“It is no secret that the film has suffered a number of setbacks but landing a royal could be just what the movie needs,” said the source.
The film, starring Craig, began filming in April this year, and it is expected to be shown in theaters in April 2020.
In June, an explosion on the set of the film injured a crew member after a stunt went “horribly wrong,” just a week after it was reported that Craig needed ankle surgery following a separate injury on set.
Buckingham Palace and MGM Studios have been contacted by INSIDER for comment.
