Kate Middleton and Prince William appear with Daniel Craig on red carpet for premiere of Bond film No Time To Die

KATE Middleton and Prince William have appeared alongside Daniel Craig on the red carpet for the premiere of the new Bond film.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge attended this evening's glittering world premiere of No Time To Die at the Royal Albert Hall in London.

Kate stepped out in a dazzling gold dress with caped arms and an up-do hairstyle – while William rocked a black suit and bow tie.

In a rare joint engagement, Charles and Camilla also step out onto the red carpet to meet 007 star Daniel Craig and other Bond cast members.

The royal foursome were introduced to screenwriters Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, and singer Billie Eilish and her musician brother Finneas O'Connell, who co-wrote the new Bond theme song.

A number of healthcare workers and members of the armed forces will join the royals in the auditorium to watch the movie as a thank you for their work during the Covid pandemic.

The highly anticipated No Time To Die is the 25th Bond film and fifth and final movie featuring Craig as 007.

It faced more than a year of delays due to the Covid outbreak – but is being released in UK cinemas on Thursday.

Charles, Camilla, William and Kate will also meet producers Michael G Wilson and Barbara Broccoli and director Cary Joji Fukunaga.

The world premiere will benefit charities supporting serving and former members of the three intelligence agencies – the Secret Intelligence Service, the Security Service and GCHQ – as well as charities supporting past and present members of the UK Special Forces.

Heir to the throne Charles is patron of the British Film Institute, while his son William is president of the British Academy of Film and Television Arts.

William and Kate attended the star-studded world premiere for the last Bond film, Spectre, in 2015, and were joined by Prince Harry.

Charles and Camilla attended the world premiere of the 23rd Bond film, Skyfall, in 2012.

No Time To Die takes place after Bond has left active service and is enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica when his old friend Felix Leiter, played by Jeffrey Wright, from the CIA turns up asking for help.

A mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist turns out to be far more treacherous than expected, leading to a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology.

A number of Bond premieres have taken place at the Royal Albert Hall, including 2015's Spectre where William and Kate and the Duke of Sussex were in attendance.
