Princess Royal named Craig a Companion of the Order of St Michael and St George on Tuesday morning at Windsor Castle, the same honor held by Ian Fleming’s famous character.
As a result of his contributions to film and theatre, actor Daniel Craig has received the same honor as his character James Bond: a CMG.
The 54-year-old actor has been in the last five James Bond films, beginning with Casino Royale in 2006 and concluding with No Time To Die in 2021.
Craig also acted alongside Chris Evans, Ana de Armas, and Jamie Lee Curtis in Knives Out (2019). The sequel to the film is scheduled to premiere at the end of the following month.
