James Bond star Daniel Craig has been pictured with the Queen’s Household Cavalry as filming for the new 007 movie took place in London.

Britain’s best-known fictional spy works for Her Majesty’s Secret Service – and scenes from the latest flick appear to take place near Buckingham Palace.

A photo released on the 007 Twitter account showed a clapperboard, marked B25 with Sunday’s date, in front of the Household Cavalry.

The image seems to have been taken on The Mall near the monarch’s official residence in central London.

It was captioned: “#Bond25 on location in London.”

A second image showed Craig, who plays the MI6 secret agent, with the Household Cavalry.

The Household Cavalry is made up of the two most senior regiments in the British Army – The Life Guards and The Blues & Royals.

It is divided into the Household Cavalry Regiment, based in Windsor, and the Household Cavalry Mounted Regiment, based at Hyde Park barracks in central London.

The cast of Bond 25 was announced during a live event in Jamaica in April, with Rami Malek, Lashana Lynch and Ana De Armas joining the line-up.

The as-yet-untitled movie, which is being directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga, has previously been shooting in Jamaica and at Pinewood Studios.

A video of filming was shared last week, showing 007 star Daniel Craig driving an open-top 4×4, and bumping into women on the dancefloor of a nightclub.

The movie has been hit by issues in recent weeks.

A crew member suffered a “minor injury” when a “controlled explosion” damaged the outside of the 007 stage at Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire.

In May, Craig was injured while filming in Jamaica, forcing the 51-year-old actor to undergo “minor ankle surgery”.

However, the cast appeared in good spirits when Prince Charles visited the Pinewood set last month.
