The latest James Bond movie, No Time To Die, saw its release delayed repeatedly. But it’s finally happening – the theatrical release is now October 8th, and they’ve scheduled a big, splashy world premiere in London at the Royal Albert Hall for September 28th. So there’s no backing down now. As for the London premiere, predictably it’s going to be a “royal premiere.” BAFTA president Prince William will attend with his keen wife, and Prince Charles and Camilla are also scheduled to attend:
The Prince of Wales, the Duchess of Cornwall and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are to attend the glittering world premiere of the new Bond film No Time To Die next week. Charles, Camilla, William and Kate will step out on to the red carpet to meet 007 star Daniel Craig and other cast members including Rami Malek, Lea Seydoux and Lashana Lynch at the Royal Albert Hall in London on Tuesday September 28.
The royal foursome will also be introduced to screenwriters Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, and singer Billie Eilish and her musician brother Finneas O’Connell, who co-wrote the new Bond theme song. Charles, Camilla, William and Kate will also meet producers Michael G Wilson and Barbara Broccoli and director Cary Joji Fukunaga.
A number of healthcare workers and members of the armed forces will join the royals in the auditorium to watch the movie as a thank you for their work during the Covid pandemic. The world premiere will benefit charities supporting serving and former members of the three intelligence agencies – the Secret Intelligence Service, the Security Service and GCHQ – as well as charities supporting past and present members of the UK Special Forces.
Heir to the throne Charles is patron of the British Film Institute, while his son William is president of the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (Bafta).

Wait for it, they’re going to bill them as “the New Fab Four.” Mark my words. Charles and Camilla will “replace” Harry and Meghan, as if two rotten old senior citizens could somehow capture the glamour of H&M. What other predictions do we have? Kate will wear something very eye-catching but ill-fitting. Something probably covered in buttons and chintz. She’ll try to flirt with Daniel Craig and William will ignore her. Charles is a James Bond fan though – he’s visited the sets of several Bond movies, and he knows the people behind-the-scenes pretty well. Anyway, something to look forward to.
