Just days after returning from their trek across Africa, Princes William and Harry both attended the premiere of the latest James Bond film, Quantum of Solace, in Leicester Square in London. The royal duo looked sharp in their matching tuxedos, most likely making their female fans swoon at the sight of that.
It was a time for the brothers to see the new 007 movie, but also honor those who really are at Her Majesty’s Service.
Before entering the theatre, William and Harry met with the dozens of war veterans who waited outside for the royal brothers.
The aim was to raise more than £500,000 from the evening for two military charities, The Royal British Legion and Help for Heroes.
“The princes chose these two great causes because they are linked to Remembrance Day, but most importantly because they want to make the point that this is a film about a British action hero, but the money is going to our country’s real heroes who put their lives in the line of fire day in, day out, in Iraq and Afghanistan,” said a Clarence House spokesman.
William and Harry spent thirty minutes chatting with the servicemen and women while the stars of the new James Bond film waited patiently inside.
Once the princes got to the stars, there was a lot of joking and charming.
Prince Harry noticed Daniel Craig was wearing a sling, who injured himself doing his own stunts. Harry asked him, “What the hell happened to you? Tough day in the office?”
This is the first royal engagement William and Harry attended together. This is also their first movie premiere attendance since going to the Spiceworld premiere in 1997. That they went to with their father, Prince Charles.
