The Duke and Duchess were joined at the premiere by Daniel Craig, who is making his last-ever appearance as James Bond in the movie.
The 53-year-old actor said to being “greatly relieved” that ‘No Time To Die’, which had previously seen its release delayed by the Covid-19 pandemic, is now finally ready to be released in cinemas, after so many months of frustration.
Reflecting on the lengthy delay, Craig said: “We’ve had Covid so everything has to be put into perspective doesn’t it?
“I am greatly relieved: we make Bond movies for the cinema and we’re here and I couldn’t be happier about that.”
