The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge joined the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall for the glittering world premiere of James Bond: No Time To Die at London's Royal Albert Hall.

It's the red carpet moment we've been waiting for and the royals didn't disappoint, with the Duchesses wowing in evening dresses, while the Princes donned tuxedos.

Kate looked stunning in a gold glittery dress by Jenny Packham, with her hair in a gorgeous updo. 

Meanwhile, Camilla was elegant in a pale blue sparkly gown by Bruce Oldfield. 

A number of health care workers and members of the armed forces were invited to the premiere to celebrate and thank them for their extraordinary contribution to the nation's response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The world premiere benefited charities supporting serving and former members of the three intelligence agencies (the Secret Intelligence Service, the Security Service  and GCHQ). The evening will also assist charities supporting past and present members of the United Kingdom Special Forces.

Prince William shares a joke with Daniel Craig at the premiere. 

He and Kate attended the last Bond premiere, Spectre, in 2015, alongside Prince Harry. 

Daniel has starred in five 007 movies, since landing the coveted role for Casino Royale in 2006. No Time To Die is his fifth and final movie as the British secret agent. 

He told PA News agency: "It's been a bittersweet couple of years, so one has to keep things in perspective. The decision to leave is still there, I'm just glad that we've got a chance to celebrate tonight and have a premiere. That seemed like such a far away thing for a while."

Actors tipped to replace Daniel include Venom star Tom Hardy and Bridgerton’s Rege-Jean Page.

On his advice for his successor, he said: "Just make it your own, be brilliant. Take it somewhere wonderful."

Charles is patron of The British Film Institute, which promotes understanding of and access to film and television culture and operates a film archive. Meanwhile, Prince William has been President of The British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) since February 2010.

Kate speaking with Lashana Lynch, who has made history as the first black female 007 agent in the Bond movies. 

The star, who plays Nomi, looked stunning in a golden yellow gown by Vivienne Westwood for the premiere. 

Lashana told PA news agency: "When I was speaking with the creators on characterising Nomi, my first thing was I wanted her to be a real woman, I wanted her to be relatable and I wanted young black girls and brown girls to see her on screen and aspire to be something bigger than what they've been told by the world.

"It's important our women with agency on the screen don’t just have a strength that comes from nowhere; there's vulnerability, the emotions they feel just being a powerful woman at work.

"And she's a black woman at work – there's a whole other added layer there that’s really important for me to tell. So this narrative in a Bond movie means I’m part of an industry that is making shifts I can be proud of, proud to be involved in."
