No Time To Die: Daniel Craig looks dapper as he joins Lashana Lynch and Kate Middleton at premiere

Daniel Craig looked uncharacteristically speechless on Tuesday evening as he marveled at the Duchess of Cambridge and her stunning Jenny Packham gown at the premiere of his final James Bond film, No Time To Die, kindly telling Kate: ‘You look jolly lovely!’

The actor chatted to Kate and husband Prince William at the Royal Albert Hall in London on Tuesday, with the Duke and Duchess joining a host of stars at the much delayed event. 

William and Kate arrived first to the premiere and were driven down the red carpet in a fleet of Range Rovers past one of the famous Aston Martin cars from the film, all while being waved on by a packed crowd outside the historic venue. 

Daniel, 53, oozed sophistication ahead of his final outing as James Bond as he joined glamorous co-stars Lashana Lynch, Lea Seydoux and Ana de Armas at the swanky event.

The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall were also driven partially down the red carpet in a state Bentley before being taken inside to meet the actors.  

Royal sources said the outing of Charles, Camilla, William and Kate could herald a ‘new era’ of collaboration and solidarity between the future king and his eldest son.

Charles and Camilla attended the world premiere of the 23rd Bond film, Skyfall, in 2012 while William and Kate attended the star-studded world premiere for the last Bond film, Spectre, in 2015, when they were joined by Prince Harry.  

Meanwhile, Lashana looked effortlessly glamorous in an elaborate yellow Vivienne Westwood Couture gown, Lea dazzled in a shimmering silver number, while Ana put on a leggy display in black as they joined leading man Daniel on the red carpet.    

Later in the evening, stars of the film including Daniel, Ana and Lashana spent time with members of the royal family. 

Daniel was photographed conversing with Prince Charles and Kate, while both Charles and William chatted to Cuban star Ana with Lashana and Kate also appearing deep in conversation while Billie beamed as she spoke to the Duke of Cambridge.

Ahead of the red carpet event, fans gathered at the Royal Albert Hall to catch a glimpse of James Bond’s Aston Martin as it made its way to the red carpet. 

Crew members brought the luxury vehicle to the venue in a truck where it was rolled out hours before the star-studded event began.   

The car had bullet holes in the glass and scratches across the sides following Bond’s adventures. 

It has been a long road to the premiere after the film’s release was delayed several times due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Changes: The movie was previously supposed to come out on April 2, however its original release was supposed to be in April 2020 (pictured Daniel Craig)

The film, directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga, was originally scheduled for release in April 2020, but was pushed back to November before the release was changed once again to April 2021 in light of the coronavirus pandemic. 

The release date was finally settled for September 30 in the UK followed by October 8 in the US.

Ahead of the release, Daniel and some of his fellow star cast members joined the Chris Evans Breakfast Show with Sky to talk about the movie.

Daniel, who has appeared in five Bond films over 15 years, told Chris: ‘After the last one, I thought that was it. I thought, ‘I can’t do any more of these’. 

‘I got a bit of a rest and we kind of talked about what we wanted to do with this last movie and how big we wanted to go, and it felt right, and I just got really excited about it, and I can’t wait for people to see it.

‘I saw a rough cut of it about a month after we finished, which is really rough, because there’s no special effects or anything. When you see that version of it, you just hope and pray that it makes sense, and it did. 

‘Once you get the effects, and you get the music, Hans Zimmer’s done the music, and it’s just incredible. The story holds together.’

‘Everyone is just turning in brilliant performances, and I think it’s quite special.’

Speaking about the enforced delay to the film’s release due to the pandemic, the actor said: ‘It’s odd enough with a movie, when you’ve finished it, and you put it out and you kind of go, ‘Woah, I hope it’s good.’ 

‘But when there is a two-year gap between finishing it and putting it out, it just makes things even stranger.’  

On where he was when he first found out he had got the role of Bond: ‘I was in Baltimore doing a movie. And I was in Whole Foods, doing my weekly shop, wandering around with a trolley with food in it, and (producer) Barbara Broccoli was on the phone, and she just went, ‘Over to you kiddo.’

‘So I got my trolley and I pushed it quietly down an aisle, walked into the booze section and bought a bottle of vodka and a bottle of vermouth, a glass and a shaker, took it home and drank it, and then went out and sat in a bar and drank about three more vodka martinis.

‘It’s really sad, actually, when you think about it. But, I must have had a sort of look on my face, because the barman kept asking me what was going on, and I said, ‘I can’t tell you!’ 

Daniel recently addressed the outdated James Bond plotlines of past films in the franchise – such as the idea of glamorous disposable so-called Bond girls.

Speaking to Lorraine Kelly, he said of the spy series – which sees latest movie No Time To Die released this week – that ‘you’ve got to adapt’ with the times.

‘Certainly a lot of what went on in the earlier movies is sort of questionable now… different times, but we didn’t want to lose the essence [in the new film]. It’s still a Bond movie.

‘I’ve been given free range to put my influence on it, but I’ve never forgotten that. We can have all key elements and things people have loved over the years, but you adapt. 

‘One of my biggest things is all the characters, especially the women, have to be brilliant and believable.’

Daniel also told Lorraine about becoming overcome with emotion when he shot his final scene as Bond.

‘Everybody turned up – all the heads of department came down, and I thought ‘Oh God, I have to make a speech, this is my worst nightmare.’ It all just came out, I tried to keep it together.

‘All of those people I go to work with every day, particularly on this movie, the collective effort was so huge and meant so much to me that everyone put that hard work in – that’s what I’ll miss so much.’

Release: The release date was finally settled for September 30 in the UK followed by October 8 in the US

No Time To Die is the 25th film in the franchise, and finds Bond after he has left active service and is enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica when his old friend Felix Leiter, played by Jeffrey Wright, from the CIA turns up asking for help.

Leaving his seemingly happy life with Madeleine (Lea Seydoux), Bond returns to the field to face Safin (Rami Malek) who is armed with a new dangerous technology that could impact the world.

Producer Barbara Broccoli has already teased what fans can expect and said that the movie will deliver a satisfying ending for Daniel’s Bond.

Speaking on the official James Bond podcast, she said: ‘It’s a culmination of everything that his portrayal of the character has been through and it ties up all the storylines. It’s a pretty epic film, I have to say.’

Daniel took over the role of Bond from Pierce Brosnan in Casino Royale in 2006 and went onto appear in Quantum of Solace in 2008, Skyfall in 2012 and Spectre in 2015.
