'Quantum of Solace' premieres in London
LONDON — Leicester Square was positively shaken and stirred Oct. 29 by the appearance of not only 007 Daniel Craig but also the princes William and Harry at the world premiere of the latest Bond pic “Quantum of Solace.”
Dressed to kill in a black tux, Craig looked every inch the Brit superspy except for a discreet sling he wore to protect an injured arm hurt during filming.Prince Harry seemed particularly enamoured by Bond girl Gemma Arterton. When he reached her in the official lineup, he joked, “What took us so long to get down this end?”
William and Harry kept attendees waiting two hours in their seats but only because they took time to meet and greet 200 invited servicemen, veterans and their families on the red carpet. The starry event raised more than $800,000 for military charities hand-picked by the princes.
