The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge rubbed shoulders with the likes of Tom Cruise as they attended the premiere of Top Gun: Maverick in Leicester Square, London on Thursday evening.

William and Kate enjoyed a glitzy night out in the capital and judging by the future King's comments, it sounds like their children Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis were gutted to miss out.

William spoke to nine-year-old Alfie Everett-Fletcher at the cinema, who later revealed: "He asked me what I liked about the last one, the things I like, if I like jets and planes and motorbikes."

Alfie said William told him he is a "big fan" of the film and "cars and stuff" and that his own children were "jealous" to miss the premiere. Alfie's mother Elise Everett added: "He said they have had the theme tune for the film playing with their kids."

Outside the auditorium, Poppy Saunders, 11, was tasked with presenting the Duchess with a bouquet of flowers. "I gave the flowers and shook hands and she said ‘hello Poppy’. She said a lot about how the kids love the film as well," the young schoolgirl revealed.

Her mother Linsay Saunders added: "She said she liked sweet peas because there were sweet peas in the flowers." Ms Saunders also said Kate told them George, Charlotte and Louis "wished they were here tonight".

Tom Cruise escorted the royals down the red carpet

William and Kate arrived to cheers and flashes of cameras as they graced the red carpet in London. The Duchess wore a glamorous Roland Mouret dress with a bardot neckline. The dress was a black column style with a white band across the top that showed off Kate's collarbones. She added Robinson Pelham's Tsar Star diamond earrings in 14ct white gold.

Although William looked dashing in his McQueen suit, it was his shoes from C&J that grabbed attention, as they were emblazoned with an F-15 fighter jet, like those used in the movie.

As well as being escorted down the red carpet by protagonist Tom, the royals also spoke to other cast members and Hollywood stars including Jennifer Connelly, Jon Hamm, Greg Tarzan Davies, Glen Powell, Jay Ellis, Danny Ramirez and Lewis Pullman.
