The Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton stole the show with her outfit at the James Bond "No Time to Die" UK premiere, and fans took turns gushing about her on social media.
On Tuesday, the world premiere of the latest installment in the James Bond film franchise, "No Time to Die," was held in London, and it turned out to be an occasion to remember.
Prince Charles and his wife, Camilla, attended the premiere alongside Prince William and his wife, Kate Middleton. The royals were special guests of honor at the event and looked the part in their lovely outfits.
However, it was Kate who stole the show. It was hard to tell that it was the Duchess of Cambridge that night as she dazzled in one of her most glamorous dresses to date, making her look like a Bond girl.
Kate looked every inch a star as she stunned in a gold, beaded gown designed by Jenny Packham. The seemingly custom-made dress featured a built-in cape that touched the floor as she walked.
For accessories, Kate donned golden earrings by O'Nita, a brand based in the UK capital. She also completed her look with stilettos and looked all shades beautiful and glamorous.
Kate was the cynosure of all eyes it could have been easy to forget she attended the event with her husband and father-in-law. Prince William and his father wore tuxedos while Camilla looked radiant in a light blue dress that featured a delicate beaded overlay.
The royals joined "No Time to Die" actor Daniel Craig, who was marking his last appearance in the famous movie franchise. He leaves after starring in the 25th James Bond film.
Craig was unsurprisingly blown away by Kate's glamorous look and told her.
Other celebrities who graced the event, which was held at London's Royal Albert Hall, include Craig's costars, Ana de Armas, Rami Malek, Lashana Lynch, and Léa Seydoux.
The film's screenwriters, Neal Purvis, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, and Robert Wade, were present, while Billie Eilish and Finneas O'Connell, who performed the theme song, also attended.
The "No Time to Die" premiere should have been held before now but was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Hence, it was only fitting to pay tribute to health workers' efforts to curb the spread of the disease.
Several healthcare workers and armed forces members were invited to the premiere to appreciate their selfless service to the UK's response to the pandemic.
The official Instagram account of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge shared a video showing moments from the premiere. The clip showed the moment the royal couple arrived at the premiere and walked the red carpet before entering the venue.
Inside the venue, Kate and William could be heard exchanging pleasantries with guests. A part of the clip showed the Duchess chatting with Craig, who wore a maroon tuxedo jacket over a white shirt and black pants.
Craig was unsurprisingly blown away by Kate's glamorous look and told her she "looked jolly lovely." In the caption to the post, the Duke and Duchess wrote:
"No Time to Die. World premiere. Well done to everyone involved 👏."
Kate and William also posted a picture from the premiere on their official Twitter page. It showed them posing with Prince Charles and Camilla on the red carpet.
In their tweet, the couple expressed delight to have James Bond back on the big screens. They said "No Time to Die" showcases the inspirational work of actors, musicians, directors, cinematographers, and everyone involved in making it a special movie.
Fashion Bomb Daily also shared pictures from the premiere. The first snap showed William and Kate all smiles as they walked the red carpet, while the second showed a closer view of the latter's face as she smiled. The post's caption read:

Many fans were delighted with Kate's impressive look at the premiere, and they took turns sharing their thoughts about her dress and appearance.
Sparks began to fly between Kate and William in their second semester.
A third person said Kate looked absolutely stunning in her outfit and added they felt it would become iconic. The fan further said Kate looked glorious.
Another tweep shared a picture of Kate and William and said they depicted how a royal couple looks. The fan also described the couple as a class act.
Meanwhile, one fan likened Kate to legendary American actress Grace Kelly. The fan further described the Duchess as stunning and iconic.
One fan shared similar sentiments and said Kate could be the next Bond girl. Another person described her gown as the most stunning they had ever seen. A tweep also wrote, "Kate is absolutely unreal 😍😍😍😍😍."
With her stunning outfit and glamorous look, Kate showed she has clearly missed dressing up, and her husband, William, must have been very proud of her that night.
The beautiful couple married ten years ago but had a long journey before doing so. They met in their first year at St. Andrews University in Scotland, which they attended.
After meeting, they slowly began building a friendship that blossomed into a relationship. Years later, William said he knew from the moment he met Kate that there was possibly something about her he wanted to explore.
Although they were not immediately drawn towards a romantic relationship, sparks began to fly between Kate and William in their second semester. Eventually, their friendship blossomed into a romance.
In the couple's engagement interview in 2010, William narrated the history of their relationship, revealing they were friends for over a year before it blossomed from then on.
He added that they spent more time with each other, had laughs and lots of fun, and realized they shared similar interests.
During the interview, Kate also spoke about their break and admitted she was not happy about it. However, despite her displeasure with their breakup, she said it made her a stronger person.
The couple eventually resolved their differences and got back together and William proposed to Kate in 2010. In their engagement interview, he opened up about how he went about the proposal. He said:
"We had a little private time away together with some friends and I just decided that it was the right time really."
William said they had been talking about marriage for a while, so it was not a massively big surprise. He took her to somewhere nice in Kenya and asked her to marry him.
Ten years after tying the knot, William and Kate are parents to three adorable children and are still making fans gush about them whenever they appear in public. Last Friday, the Duchess celebrated a group of young tennis stars, including Alfie Hewitt, Gordon Reid, and Joe Salisbury.
Also among the young tennis stars was 18-year-old Emma Raducanu, who made history when she won the 2021 US Open after entering via the qualifying rounds.
Kate chatted with Raducanu at the National Tennis Center in Southwest London before pairing up for a quick doubles game. The pair had fun during the game and were seen laughing and enjoying themselves in the sun.
Over the years, Kate has endeared herself to numerous fans through her commendable actions, and her latest glamourous appearance shows she is now doing so on the red carpet. Way to go, Duchess!
