The royal foursome were offered ‘pizzaz’ at the Bond screening, with Kate leading the family’s’star appeal.’
Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, was hailed for looking “absolutely beautiful” on the red carpet for the premiere of No Time To Die, among other senior members of the Royal Family.
Following her appearance at the James Bond premiere last Tuesday in a gold-sequinned Jenny Packham gown, Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge has been described as “the star” of the evening. Kate was accompanied by Prince William, Prince Charles, and Camilla to commemorate the release of the latest installment in the Bond franchise, as well as actor Daniel Craig’s final appearance as the renowned 007 agent.
“The whole world is watching, everyone’s been waiting for this much-delayed debut because of the pandemic,” ITV’s royal editor Chris Ship said on the Royal Rota podcast. “There are times when you think what’s the point in these royals going out but they really did give it some pizzazz.”
Lizzie Robinson, the producer, went on to say: “I mean, there was some serious star power there, lead by the Duchess of Cambridge, who looked incredible in gold.””
In that beautiful Jenny Packham gown, she made the front page of every newspaper.”
Kate was dubbed the “Duchess with the Golden Gown” by various news sites, a play on the 1974 Bond film “The Man with the Golden Gun.”
“Obviously, the Bond picture had stars there, it’s got Daniel Craig and it’s got Rami Malek and loads of other people,” Chris Ship continued, “but what you’re saying is old Duchy, she was the star.”
Lizzie Robinson said the 39-year-old Duchess “looked magnificent” in her gold-sequinned cape gown and gold Onitaa earrings.
Actor Daniel Craig complimented her beauty upon meeting her, saying she looked “jolly wonderful.”
Prince William accompanied her, dressed in a sleek velvet suit jacket with matching shoes and necktie.
The Duchess of Cornwall, who wore a pastel-blue and silver sequinned Bruce Oldfield gown with diamante-drop earrings, was also lauded for her stunning appearance.
The premieres of Eon Productions’ James Bond franchise, which is regarded an iconic fixture of British culture, have traditionally been attended by members of the Royal Family.
On the red carpet for the 2015 release of Spectre, Prince William and Kate were joined by Prince Harry.
“Brinkwire Summary News” said that Prince Charles and Camilla had previously attended the 2012 premiere of Skyfall.
