The world premiere of “Spectre”, the upcoming 24th James Bond film, will be attended by Prince William, Kate Middleton and Prince Harry.
“We are honoured that Their Royal Highnesses, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry will attend the Royal Film Performance of ‘Spectre’ and delighted the CTBF will be the beneficiary of the event,” film producers Michael G Wilson and Barbara Broccoli said in a statement.
It will take place on Monday, October 26 at The Royal Albert Hall in London.
“Spectre” has been selected for The Cinema and Television Benevolent Fund’s Royal Film Performance 2015.
The Royal Film Performance (RFP) is annually held in aid of the CTBF, the charity for the UK film, cinema and commercial television industries, dedicated to providing support for those working behind-the-scenes in times of hardship.
