A duo of duchesses and a pair of princes mingled royal glamour with modern movie glitz as they reunited with James Bond.

Kate Middleton and Prince William joined Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall as guests of honor at the world premiere of the latest Bond movie, No Time to Die, on Tuesday evening. 

Kate, 39, looked every bit the star while wearing a stunning gold, beaded Jenny Packham gown with a dramatic cape. Elegant earrings from London-based company O'Nitaa and a neatly swept updo rounded out the Duchess's look — a look so nice, in fact, that star Daniel Craig told her, "You look jolly lovely!"

William, 39, and Charles, 72, were both suited up in tuxes (William in a luxe velvet jacket with satin lapels, black cashmere slippers by Arthur Sleep and an OMEGA watch), while Camilla, 74, opted for a light blue Bruce Oldfield dress with a delicate beaded overlay.

The opening of the movie had been long-delayed because of the coronavirus pandemic, and in a nod to the ongoing public health crisis, a number of healthcare workers and members of the armed forces were invited as a token of thanks for their "extraordinary contribution to the nation's response to the COVID pandemic," the palace said.
