Rise, dark knight: Harry gives Batman royal seal of approval

Prince Harry gave The Dark Knight Rises the thumbs up when he made a surprise appearance at the film's European debut in London. The dashing Prince could have passed for a movie star in his blue suit and crisp white shirt, casually left open at the neck. He was joined by his cousin Princess Eugenie, who stepped out with her boyfriend Jack Brooksbank.


The low-key couple have been together for two years after being introduced on a skiing holiday. Since the blockbuster had two premieres on the night, the young royals were the centre of attention at the second screening at the BFI Imax, Waterloo. Meanwhile, the film's most bankable names, including leading man Christian Bale, were dazzling crowds across town at the main Leicester Square unveiling.

Hollywood's girl-next-door Anne Hathaway ramped up the glamour in a loose, floor-length Gucci gown.


Anne is a newcomer to the Batman films, and she revealed she had to endure gruelling preparation for the role of Catwoman"It took so much training. If you're familiar with my other works, you'll see that I'm not a natural, so it took a lot of work to get there," she said. "It was wonderful, it was such an honour. I love the first two Batman films."
