James Bond star Daniel Craig only had eyes for the Duchess of Cambridge when he complimented her on her dazzling dress she wore to the world premiere of 007.

Camilla sparkled in a light blue chiffon dress by Bruce Oldfield, and the royal men looked smart in their black ties.

The royal guests took to the very large red carpet and posed for a photo together before the premiere began after climbing stairs flanked by members of the armed forces.

Among the lineup that later met the royals were Oscar-winning actor Rami Malek, who joins the franchise as villain Safin, and Phoebe Waller-Bridge, one of the film’s screenwriters.

British actress Lashana Lynch has been cast as the first black female 00 agent, Nomi, and Lea Seydoux returns as Bond girl Madeleine Swann after her appearance in 2015’s Spectre.

Tennis sensation Emma Raducanu, who looked stunning in a long dress, was among the guests who joined a number of health professionals and members of the armed forces as a thank you for their work during the Covid pandemic.

The film, which will be Craig’s last appearance as 007, was set to release in April 2020 but was delayed when the first wave of Covid-19 broke out and pushed back repeatedly as the pandemic took hold.

With the cinema industry in the doldrums, the highly anticipated film, which hits UK cinemas on Thursday, is expected to herald a major return of moviegoers.

No Time To Die takes place after the capture of villain Ernst Stavro Blofeld, played by Christoph Waltz, when Bond and love interest Swann ran off together in Specter in late 2015.

It finds Bond after he leaves active duty, enjoying a quiet life in Jamaica, although it seems that the couple is not guaranteed a long and happy life.
