The world premiere of the new James Bond film, No Time To Die, is scheduled for next week and the Prince of Wales, the Duchess of Cornwall and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are all set to attend the event.

On Tuesday September 28 at the Royal Albert Hall in London, Prince Charles, Camilla, Prince William and Kate Middleton will meet Daniel Craig as well as some other cast members including Rami Malek, Lea Seydoux and Lashana Lynch in a rare joint engagement.

The four royals will also meet 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.

As a thank you gesture for their work during the coronavirus pandemic, a number of healthcare workers and members of the armed forces will join the royals in the auditorium to watch the new film.

The highly anticipated No Time To Die is the 25th Bond film and fifth and final movie featuring Craig as James Bond.

It faced more than a year of delays due to the Covid-19 outbreak but it is being released in UK cinemas on September 30.

The royals will also meet producers Michael G Wilson and Barbara Broccoli and director Cary Joji Fukunaga.

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 Prince Charles is patron of the British Film Institute, while his son Prince William is president of the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (Bafta).

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge attended the star-studded world premiere for the last Bond film, Spectre, in 2015, but were joined by Prince Harry.

Harry, now the Duke of Sussex, has since married former actress Meghan Markle, quit as a working royal, moved to the US, accused the royal family of racism and spoken of his troubled relationships with his father and brother.

The outing is likely to be seen as a sign of collaboration and solidarity between the future king and his eldest son.

Prince Charles and Camilla attended the world premiere of the 23rd Bond film, Skyfall, in 2012.

No Time To Die takes place after Bond 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.
