BRITAIN’S Prince Charles gifted James Bond with a royal visit late last week. The heir apparent to the throne toured the set of the new 007 movie filming at Pinewood Studios outside London.

Prince Charles, 70, met actor Daniel Craig, who plays the fictional secret agent who is “on her majesty’s service.” Also present at the studio were Ralph Fiennes and Naomie Harris. The two actors portray secret service head “M” and secretary Moneypenny, respectively.

Craig is taking on the role of the super spy for the fifth time in the “Bond 25” production. “Bond 25” is the working title of the yet unnamed film directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga. It is set for release in April 2020.

Rami Malek, who won a best actor Oscar in February for his portrayal of late Queen singer Freddie Mercury in “Bohemian Rhapsody,” will play the international villain in the movie.

During the visit celebrating the franchise’s contribution to Britain’s film industry, Craig and Fiennes showed Prince Charles inside M’s office, where he watched a scene being filmed on monitors. Craig also showed the royal two of Bond’s famed Aston Martin cars.

Prince Charles is a patron of both the British Film Institute and Britain’s intelligence services, explaining his visit to the set. Reuters
