Daniel Craig had a special royal visitor on the set of “James Bond” on Thursday.
The future King took a trip to Pinewood Studios to check in on the cast and crew. Prince Charles, a known fan of Aston Martin, was delighted to take a look at the classic Bond cars being used for “Bond 25”.
Craig explained the six different stunt cars, two of which are “pod cars” created so an actor can sit in the driver’s seat while a stunt person drives the car from a pod on top.
The Prince of Wales and Craig then posed for pictures in front of a DB5 and a real Aston Martin Vantage. “The cars are the interesting thing here, much more interesting,” Charles teased.
Charles also shared a laugh with Ralph Fiennes on the set, while meeting with the cast to discuss the upcoming action film.
Prince Charles isn’t the only “Bond” fan in the Royal family. During the 2012 London Olympics, Queen Elizabeth II made her debut alongside Craig acting as 007 for the opening ceremony.
Bond picked up Her Majesty from Buckingham Palace before taking a helicopter to the arena. The Queen (or rather the stunt person) then parachuted down into the crowd, who loved every minute of it.
