It may have been a long time, but the world premiere of the new James Bond film on Tuesday did not disappoint.
At the “No Time to Die” red carpet event held at the Royal Albert Hall in London, screen and stage stars appeared alongside members of the British royal family.

This long-delayed film is Daniel Craig’s fifth and final performance as an iconic British agent. It was originally scheduled to be released in April 2020, but it was postponed many times due to the global pandemic.
Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, attended with her husband, Prince William, and her in-laws, the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall, wearing Jenny Packham’s floor-to-ground gilded gown dazzled bystanders.

The 53-year-old actor first played the role of Bond in the 2006 blockbuster “Casino Royale”. He told the PA News Agency that his plan to retire from the franchise has not changed, but he is very happy to participate in this event.
“These are bittersweet years, so people have to put things in perspective. The decision to leave is still there, and I am glad we have the opportunity to celebrate and premiere tonight. This seems to be such a long time ago,” Craig said.
“No Time to Die” is the 25th film in the James Bond series, directed by Fukuyong Gary. Its previous works include “Jane Eyre” and “True Detective”, partly written by Phoebe Waller-Bridge.
Dazzling bystanders also included Craig’s co-stars Naomi Harris, Lasana Lynch, Anna de Armas and Léa Seydoux.
