Kate Middleton conquers the red carpet with Tom Cruise in London

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are such fans that they had already seen the film at a private screening that Tom Cruise organized for them.

Being royal has many advantages, and one of them is receiving invitations to glamorous movie premieres. Attending them offers the opportunity to immortalize the moments in which authentic royalty shares space with Hollywood royalty, whether with the image of Elizabeth II shaking hands with Elizabeth Taylor or with that of Diana of Wales succumbing to the charisma of Tom Cruise.

The latest image of this type has just come to us from the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, who attended the UK premiere of Top Gun: Maverick in Leicester Square last night. The event organized by Paramount Pictures in association with The Film and TV Charity was attended by numerous stars, in addition to being the 72nd time that members of British royalty have attended a premiere thanks to the work of said charity in its almost 100 years of history.

After the success of the red carpet appearance for the James Bond film No Time to Die last September, in which Kate dazzled in a gold sequin dress by Jenny Packham, her choice of wardrobe did not impress us either. upset. On this occasion, the Duchess opted for an elegant two-tone dress by Roland Mouret with a spectacular strapless neckline and elegant straight hair parted in the middle. The accessories were simple and discreet, except for some striking star-shaped earrings. Tom Cruise no doubt noticed her and soon after helped her up the stairs to the red carpet, taking her hand. Prince William, for his part, was very elegant in a velvet jacket accompanied by a bow tie. The special touch adjusted to the theme of the evening has been provided by its velvet slippers with embroidered fighter planes.

It was surely a dream come true for the couple, who are reportedly such Top Gun fans that its leading star, Tom Cruise, organized a private screening for the two of them at Kensington Palace earlier this year. The original film was a huge hit of the ’80s that launched not only Cruise but also his co-stars Val Kilmer and Kelly McGillis, to stardom.

Being BAFTA regulars (after all, William is its president), it’s no surprise that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are such film buffs. On one of their first official royal tours as a couple, they visited Los Angeles, California, and attended a spectacular gala held on behalf of the BAFTAs in the city.
