The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton and Prince William, and Prince Harry joined the stars of the 24th James Bond film “Spectre” for the film's world premiere in London.

First to arrive on the red carpet on Monday night was Bond himself, Daniel Craig. He received a warm welcome at London’s Royal Albert Hall. Afterwards, he met the royal family and shook hands with Prince William, Kate Middleton and Prince Harry.

The royal guests also met “Spectre” director, Sam Mendes, and producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G Wilson before the film's first screening.

Speaking about playing James Bond, Craig, who is playing Agent 007 for the fourth time, said to the BBC, "It's changed my life and I've loved every second of it.” He also admitted that he hated watching himself on screen, but said "I love playing James Bond."

The actor also said, Mendes was one of the best directors out there, and he enjoyed being creatively involved from the very beginning.

On the red carpet, Mr Bond was accompanied by his leading ladies, Léa Seydoux, Monica Bellucci and Naomie Harris

Bellucci, one of the Bond Girls said to the BBC, “It was a great pleasure to be part of the amazing tradition of Bond films,” adding, “It's magic, and it’s incredible how James Bond represents so much, not just in England actually, but all over the world."

“Spectre” opens in Australia on Nov. 12.
