The name’s William. Prince William.

The James Bond franchise is about to get a triple dose of royalty from Prince William, Princess Kate and Prince Harry.

The palace has announced that the royal trio is set to attend the world premiere of the latest Bond movie, Spectre, at the Royal Albert Hall in London on Oct. 26.

The star-studded evening will be the perfect excuse for Kate to break out a stunning gown and the dashing princes to dust off their tuxedos.

But the event isn’t just about glitz and glamour. They will also be there to raise money and awareness for the Cinema and Television Benevolent Fund, which helps those who worked behind the scenes in entertainment.

Producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli said they were “honored” that the royals were attending, while the President of the CTBF, Barry Jenkins OBE, added in a statement, “We are absolutely thrilled that the world premiere of SPECTRE has been selected as The CTBF Royal Film Performance 2015 and are most grateful to the royal family for their continued support.”

The film, which opens in the U.S. on Nov. 6, stars Daniel Craig as Bond for the fourth time. Sam Smith, who called the movie franchise a “British legacy”, is the voice of the theme song.

William and Kate, both 33, were last at a movie premiere when they walked the red carpet for the British opening of Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom. It turned out to be a night of sadness, as news broke that the former South African leader had passed away during the performance.

The couple was also at the first night of War Horse, in January 2012.

The royal brothers attended the premiere of Daniel Craig’s Quantum of Solace in 2008, dressed to kill in matching black tie.

It is turning out to be a busy fall for the young royals. Kate is set for her latest visit to a children’s mental health charity Thursday, while William has an evening planned with his conservation charity, Tusk Trust.

While Will and Kate rev up their royal duties, Harry is immersing himself in promoting the Rugby World Cup and is set for a visit to both Washington D.C. to push his Paralympic-style Invictus Games.
