After months of anticipation and media hubbub, the latest offering from the much-loved Ian Fleming’s series, SPECTRE premiered in London yesterday at the Royal Albert Hall to the viewing delight of Prince William, his gorgeous wife, Kate Middleton, and the ever-charming Prince Harry.

The ruggedly handsome Daniel Craig, the sixth actor to take on the mantle as the suave secret service agent, James Bond, attended the sophisticated première with his two leading ladies, Monica Bellucci and Léa Seydoux, in attendance. However, it was clear that only one woman held his heart and that was his real-life leading lady, Rachel Weisz, with whom he maintained contact throughout the meet-and-greet with the royal siblings.
