JAMES BOND fans could be in for a very British treat in the next instalment of the film as one member of the Royal Family has been offered a cameo role in the upcoming film.

Prince Charles has been earmarked to earning a role, according to insiders on the movie. Charles visited the film set a few weeks ago and met Daniel Craig. The heir to the throne would not be the first royal to make a Bond appearance.
His mother famously appeared in a short film alongside Craig for the 2012 Olympic opening ceremony.
The Sun on Sunday also reported sons Prince William and Prince Harry had small roles as Stormtroopers in Star Wars: The Last Jedi but were cut from the final film due to being too tall.
A source close to the production team told the newspaper: “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.”
Charles is said to be considering taking up the offer.

He previously had a cameo role as himself on Coronation Street back in 2000 in which he had lunch with Sue Nicholls’ character Audrey Roberts.
The source added: “The 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.”
The as yet untitled Bond 25 has received several setbacks, including an explosion at Pinewood Studios, an ankle injury to Craig and director Danny Boyle quitting to be replaced by Cary Fukunaga.

When Charles visited, he even joked: “You haven’t had any more things blowing up recently?”
Another source 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.”
As well as Craig, the confirmed cast includes Ralph Fiennes as M, Naomie Harris as Eve Moneypenny, Rory Kinnear as Bill Tanner and Ben Whishaw as Q.
Other confirmed cast members include Rami Malek and David Dencik as villains, Lea Seydoux as Dr Madeleine Swann, Jeffrey Wright as the CIA’s Felix Leiter, Anna de Armas as Paloma, Lashana Lynch as Nomi plus Dali Bennsalah and Billy Magnussen in roles not yet disclosed.
The film is scheduled for a April 3rd 2020 release.
