James Bond was in royal company on Tuesday night as the Prince of Wales, the Duchess of Cornwall and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge joined Daniel Craig at the world premiere of No Time To Die.

The red carpet was rolled out at the Royal Albert Hall in London as the highly-anticipated Bond film prepared to debut to a star-studded audience.

Charles, Camilla, William and Kate were all seen arriving at the venue as they prepared to meet the cast.

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

No Time To Die serves as Daniel’s last appearance as 007 after five films.

He debuted as Bond in 2006′s Casino Royale and went on to appear in 2008′s Quantam Of Solace, 2012′s Skyfall and 2015′s Spectre.

No Time To Die was originally scheduled for release in November 2019, but was rescheduled for April 2020 after the departure of director Danny Boyle.

The coronavirus pandemic then moved the release date a further two times.

Daniel was seen choking up on the set of the film after shooting his final scenes in a clip taken from the Apple TV+ documentary Being James Bond.

The actor held back tears as he gave an emotional speech to the cast and crew, in which he called working with them “one of the greatest honours of my life”.

No Time To Die is released in UK cinemas on 30 September.
