Kate Middleton Absolutely Shines On The Red Carpet For James Bond: No Time To Die

The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, looked every bit a queen as she walked the red carpet for the premiere of the new James Bond film "No Time To Die" next to her husband, Prince William, who is the President of The British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA). According to a People report, the Duke and Duchess joined Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall for the COVID-19-delayed movie premier. The palace said that it invited healthcare workers and armed forces members to recognize their "extraordinary contribution to the nation's response to the COVID pandemic." Hello Magazine reported that the royal couple previously attended the Bond franchise's 2015 "Spectre" movie premier alongside Prince Harry. 

While Prince Charles and Prince William looked dapper in black tuxedos, and Camilla sparkled in a light blue gown featuring a beaded overlay, the 39-year-old duchess nearly stole the show in her glamorous evening wear. The future Queen of England even received a nod from the film's star, Daniel Craig. He told Middleton, "You look jolly lovely!" Read on for all the details on the stunning gown that captured the James Bond actor's positive attention.

The exquisitely beaded gold gown featured long sleeves, a deep v-neck, and a cinched in waist all topped off with a dramatic cape attached at the shoulders. The cape's small train provided glamorous drama as Middleton spent the evening speaking with guests and those involved in the film "No Time To Die," including actors Rami Malek, Léa Seydoux, Lashana Lynch, and Ana de Armas. Siblings and musicians Billie Eilish and Finneas O'Connell also attended due to singing the film's theme song.

To finish off her date night look, Middleton wore elegant earrings from O'Nitaa that dangled from her ears, and she wore her brunette locks in an intricate updo, allowing her jewelry and gown to take center state at the event in London's Royal Albert Hall. The duchess' stunning gown was a welcome sight after the premiere's delay due to the pandemic.
