The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge attended Top Gun: Maverick Premiere

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge attended the UK premiere of Top Gun: Maverick at Leicester Square in London on Thursday 19th May.

The premiere was hosted by Paramount Pictures and The Film and TV Charity and was the 72nd Royal Film Performance™ delivered by the charity in its almost 100-year history.

The charity is an organisation that supports hundreds of thousands of people working behind the scenes in the UK’s film and television industry. This was especially apparent during the pandemic when the charity went above and beyond to help many of whom lost their livelihoods.

Their Royal Highnesses were greeted at Leicester Square by the Lord Lieutenant and the CEO from the Film and TV Charity before being taken down the red carpet. They were then introduced to cast members from the film including Tom Cruise and Miles Teller.

Following this, The Duke and Duchess met film studio executives including Director Joe Kosinski, and representatives from The Film and TV Charity. They were then presented with posies and programmes before entering the auditorium to watch the film.
