The newest installment of the James Bond franchise, "Skyfall," is not only getting lots of attention from fans and critics, it's also received the royal treatment.

Prince Charles and his wife, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, had a date night Tuesday in London at Royal Albert Hall for the world premiere of "Skyfall," which stars Daniel Craig, Judi Dench, Javier Bardem and Ralph Fiennes. The premiere benefited charities that support former and current members of Britain's intelligence agencies.

Though it was Craig's moment to shine, the Bond actor looked out of sorts at one point on the red carpet, patting his forehead with a handkerchief. His wife, actress Rachel Weisz, came to his aid.

Queen Elizabeth II herself teamed up with James Bond himself for the opening ceremonies of the 2012 London Olympics. The scene included the queen - actually a stunt double - jumping from a helicopter and hanging from a parachute emblazoned with the British flag.

The queen was absent from the "Skyfall" red carpet. She attended the premieres for 2002's "Die Another Day" and 2006's "Casino Royale."

Speaking to the BBC on the red carpet of Tuesday's premiere, Craig said it was special for him to be involved in a new Bond movie that's being released during the 50-year anniversary of the franchise.

"It's just a real honor. It's just an honor to be a part of it and it's an honor to have a chance to make a movie in this 50th year," he said.
