Posted in: United Kingdom

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.bond10 300x184 William & Harry Attend 007 Premiere

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.

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.

The first stop for the King was to the university site, where the university of Chouaib Doukkali was extending its campus. The extension will include a multidisciplinary university, a national school of trade and management (ENCG), a national school of applied sciences, and creating new study tracks (engineering, offshoring, and tourism). The new campus will have a capacity of 1,134 beds.

Next, King Mohammed moved on to the port site, where he launched developmental works for fisherman, many whom do traditional fishing.

This project will help modernize hosting and marketing infrastructure of traditional and coastal fishery in the city and promote the port’s competitiveness, notably through endowing it with a modern hall that respects international hygiene standards, in addition to various facilities for fish wholesalers.

Financed by the department of Fisheries, the project is expected to improve the living and working conditions of fishermen, as it provides for literacy classes and awareness raising actions.

After the port, the King lastly went to lay the foundation stone for a wastewater pretreatment plant and an ocean outfall. Both are meant to clean up the coastline of El Jadida in addition to the seaside station of Sidi Bouzid, as part of efforts to make El Jadida an important tourism destination through environment-friendly programs.

The plant and outfall cost a total of $41 million.
