Looks like Prince Charles may be following in the footsteps of his daughter-in-law Meghan Markle after being offered a role in the new James Bond film.

After visiting the set of the 25th film of the famous franchise, The Sun has reported that he was offered a role in the movie.

“When he visited the film set a few weeks ago it was discussed. Now he is considering it,” a source close to the production told the outlet.

While it is an extra special accolade for the second-in-line-to-the-throne to be asked to star in the film alongside 007, it would not be the first time a royal has starred alongside Bond.

You may recall at the opening ceremony of London’s 2012 Olympic Games, his mum, Queen Elizabeth II, starred in a short parody where Daniel Craig was to retrieve Her Majesty at Buckingham Palace.

The next scene depicted the Queen (actually a stunt double) ejecting herself from a helicopter with a parachute to arrive at Olympic Park, while wearing a pink dress.

“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.”
