Prince Charles 'considering' a role in upcoming James Bond movie'

Royal visit to Pinewood studios

Prince Charles was offered a role in the next James Bond film when he visited the London set and met Daniel Craig in June, according to The Sun.

"When he visited the film set a few weeks ago it was discussed. Now he is considering it," a source close to the production said.

If he was to accept the part he would follow in the footsteps of the Queen, who featured in Danny Boyle's homage to the movie for the opening ceremony of the 2012 Olympics.

"They loved the buzz around the Queen's appearance alongside Daniel Craig and think Charles could top even that," the source added. "He is the epitome of everything British, perfect for a cameo role and Bond fans worldwide would absolutely love it."
