Daniel Craig meets Prince Charles on James Bond set and they’re besties
Daniel Craig had the pleasure of hosting Prince Charles on set of James Bond this afternoon and frankly, they couldn’t have looked more pleased to see each other.
Prince Charles, 70, headed to Pinewood Studios in Iver Heath on Thursday to meet with the cast of the upcoming Bond 25, including actress Naomi Harris, actor Ralph Fiennes and director Cary Fukunaga.
The cast were delighted to give His Royal Highness a tour of the famous sprawling set, and was spotted chatting to Naomi, 42, as a portrait of Dame Judi Dench in her iconic character M hung on the wall next to them.
But perhaps the highlight of Prince Charles’ set visit was getting a personal tour of Bond’s beloved Aston Martin DB5, which Daniel had the pleasure of unveiling.
No word yet on whether Charles was offered a martini, shaken not stirred.
At one point, Charles was seen watching clips from past Bond movies using headphones and, judging by the smile on his face, was highly entertained.
According to royal reporter Richard Palmer, Charles was invited to the set in his role as royal patron of the British Film Institute and the UK intelligence services.
Daniel, 51, seemed to be in high spirits despite suffering a series of setbacks in recent weeks.
The Casino Royale actor broke his ankle while filming an intense scene on the Bond 25 set in Jamaica last month. He was subsequently flown out to the US for an operation and to seek treatment with a specialist doctor.
Daniel’s injury meant production was delayed by around a week but filming resumed earlier this month.
Assuring fans that he’s back on the mend, a photo of Daniel working out in the gym with a boot on his injured foot was posted to the official 007 Instagram account.
That’s not the only drama to swarm Bond 25 recently, as it’s claimed Daniel and his co-star Rami Malek, who will play a villain, have ‘struggled’ to film together in recent weeks.
