Even the world’s greatest stars get a little starstruck occasionally. On the red carpet at the No Time To Die premiere overnight in London, Billie Eilish (wearing a signature Gucci ensemble) and brother Finneas were in the company of Royals. Images have emerged of the pair meeting Prince William and Kate Middleton for the first time and the singer’s reaction is so sweet.
Eilish beamed as she shook hands with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. While the entire affair appeared to be quite pleasant, in an interview with BBC ahead of the event Eilish was far from composed. “It’s going to be crazy… Oh my god, I’m going to pee myself,” she told the publication.
The famous brother-sister duo wrote, produced and recorded the new James Bond theme song. Only a handful of artists have had the honour in the past which includes Madonna, Tina Turner, Adele and Sam Smith.
The Duke and Duchess don’t often attend red carpet events and honoured the rare moment in spectacular fashion. Prince William wore a crisp tuxedo and Middleton appeared in a dazzling sequin-clad cape gown by designer Jenny Packham.
“Wonderful to see @007 back on our big screens! No Time To Die is the 25th Bond film and Daniel Craig’s last after 15 years in the role,” the couple wrote on Instagram. “It showcases the inspirational work of actors, musicians, directors, cinematographers and all those involved in making the film so special.”
The post continued, “Tonight’s world premiere will benefit charities supporting serving and former members of the three intelligence agencies: the Secret Intelligence Service, the Security Service, and @gchq.”
Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall were also in attendance.
The forthcoming film has seen a slew of delays for 18 months. Early reviews from The Guardian and BBC have already given it an impressive five stars suggesting it is well worth the wait. Unfortunately we will have to wait just a little longer overseas.
No Time To Die will release into cinemas from November 11 in Australia and October 8 in the United States.
