Duchess wears Jenny Packham dress for James Bond SPECTRE premiere

Yesterday evening (Monday 26th October 2015) Kate joined princes William and Harry for the London premiere of the new James Bond film, SPECTRE.

The James Bond film was selected as this year’s Royal Film Performance, a “major film premiere which is attended by members of the British Royal Family.”  The glittering premiere benefited the Cinema and Television Benevolent Fund, a charity for those working behind the scenes in Film and TV.   More about the charity:

We support industry professionals who work in every role from script to screen who find themselves in times of need for one reason or another.

Through donations, our Supporters Scheme, and events including The Royal Film Performance™, we are able to help more than 1,000 beneficiaries and their families every year.

As you’d expect, the stars of the film were on the red carpet.  Below, Daniel Craig, Monica Bellucci and Léa Seydoux.
