Kate Middleton stunned the world when she stepped out at the premiere of James Bond film No Time To Die in a gold sequinned gown on Tuesday night (local time).

And it seems even her father-in-law, Prince Charles, was mesmerised by the Duchess of Cambridge on the night, completely bypassing his son, Prince William, to give Kate a peck on the cheek.

Prince Charles and Camilla arrived on the red carpet just after Prince William and Kate Middleton, with the duchess and her father-in-law seen sharing an adorable moment on camera.


In a video posted to the @fromberkshiretobuckingham Instagram account, the 72-year-old Prince of Wales can be seen heading straight over to his daughter-in-law and holding her arms, before giving her a loving kiss on both cheeks.

Kate could be seen placing her hands on Prince Charles' shoulders as the pair looked thrilled to see each other.

The future king wasn’t the only one taken by Kate Middleton’s stunning Jenny Packham look on the night, with James Bond star Daniel Craig telling her, "You look jolly lovely!".

Indeed, fans online were so taken by the duchess’ ensemble that one Twitter user described it as "the biggest wow red carpet moment from anyone in about two years".

Another person called Kate’s look “Absolutely breathtaking”.

While the gown is a similar design to a dress that appeared in Jenny Packham's recent fall 2021 collection, we decided to take a look around and find something similar on a budget.
