Charles and Camilla step out in style for hotly anticipated World War One epic 1917

Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall attended the Royal premier of war film 1917 this evening.

The Prince of Wales looked dashing in a classic black tuxedo and had made sure to have his shoes shined before attending the premiere at London’s Odeon in Leicester Square.

Camilla also looked glamorous and was wearing a black floor-length gown with a beaded shawl that had a splash of pink.

The 72-year-old Duchess made sure to add sparkle to the outfit and teamed the ensemble with a stunning pendant, diamond-shaped earrings and a bejewelled clutch bag. 

The couple were among the guests at the star-studded event of the hotly anticipated World War One epic by Sam Mendes.

The couple met supporters and trustees of the charity and 1917’s Oscar-winning director Mendes, who also wrote and produced the film. 

Camilla, who was wearing a Bruce Oldfield gown, told him and producers including BAFTA chairman Pippa Harris: ‘It’s very exciting, it’s had very good reviews.’

The film will have been particularly poignant for Camilla, as three of her great uncles, Harry, Alick and Hugh Cubitt were killed in the First World War.

They also chatted to its stars George Mackay, Dean-Charles Chapman, Andrew Scott, Richard Madden, Mark Strong and Claire Duburcq.

Asked by the Prince how he was feeling at the premiere, Mark Strong joked: ‘I’ve done a few, I’m getting on a bit!’

The royal couple were then presented with programmes by Celia Chapman, the 11 year old sister of Dean Charles Chapman and Issy, eight, whose five-year-old sister Jess gave the Duchess a posy.

The young sisters and their family have been supported by the Film and TV charity.

All three girls curtseyed in turn, prompting the Duchess to say: ‘Oh my goodness, a lot of good curtseys tonight!’

Pointing to Jess’s sparkly silver footwear she told her: ‘I like your shoes!’

It comes just a day after the royal couple hosted US President Donald Trump at Clarence House, before attending a reception at Buckingham Palace for the Nato alliance. 

Other guests in attendance included Richard Madden who looked sharp alongside his chic co-star Claire Duburcq. The actor, 33, was dressed to impress as he stepped out onto the red carpet in a black tuxedo, which he paired with a crisp white shirt and a black bow tie.

1917 follows Lance Corporals Schofield (George MacKay) and Blake (Dean-Charles Chapman) as they are tasked with a seemingly impossible mission to sneak into enemy territory to stop a doomed attack by the Allied Forces. 

Traversing the dangerous French landscape, the pair must do everything they can to get their message to the powers that be so they can save 1600 soldiers from walking into a deadly trap.

The intense drama is sure to leave viewers on the edge of their seat, as it is shot and edited to look as if it takes place in real time, and as a single long take.

Earlier this year, the director said in a featurette of filming the war epic as one long take: ‘From the very beginning, I felt this movie should be told in real time.

‘Every step of the journey, breathing every breath with these men, felt integral, and there’s no better way to tell this story than with one continuous shot.’ 

Mendes enlisted Oscar-winning cinematographer Roger Deakins to shoot the film, who explained that he knew this would be a very ‘immersive’ movie.
