The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge praised the cast and crew of “No Time To Die” for making the film “so special”.
The royal couple attended the long-awaited world premiere of the new Bond film at the Royal Albert Hall in London on Tuesday (09.28.21), and they subsequently praised the “inspiring” efforts of the cast and crew.
The Duke and Duchess said in a post on their Twitter account: âIt’s wonderful to see @ 007 back on our big screens!
âNo Time To Die is the 25th Bond film and Daniel Craig’s last after 15 years in the role. It showcases the inspiring work of actors, musicians, directors, cinematographers and all who have helped make the film so special. (sic) “
The funds for the world premiere have been awarded to charities that support active and former members of British intelligence agencies.
And royals hailed the news in their Twitter post.
They said: “Tonight’s world premiere will benefit charities supporting serving and former members of the three intelligence agencies: the Secret Intelligence Service, the Security Service and @GCHQ (sic)”
The Duke and Duchess were joined at the premiere by Daniel Craig, who makes his final appearance as James Bond in the film.
And the 53-year-old actor admitted to being “greatly relieved” that ‘No Time To Die’ – which had previously seen its release delayed by the COVID-19 pandemic – is finally ready to be tasted in theaters, after so many months of frustration.
Reflecting on the long delay, he said: âWe’ve had COVID so everything has to be put into perspective, right?
“I’m very relieved: we’re making Bond films for theaters and we’re here and I couldn’t be happier about it.”
