Kate Middleton and Prince William have touched down at the U.K. premiere of Top Gun: Maverick.
On May 19, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended a screening of the Top Gun sequel starring Tom Cruise at Leicester Square in London, England. Middleton walked the red carpet wearing a black-and-white off-shoulder gown by Roland Mouret that was perfectly complemented by her husband’s classic black tuxedo. The Duchess kept her neck bare and her loose, straight hair away from her face to showcase a par of dainty starburst diamond earrings.
While Prince William kept his look relatively simple, he snuck in one nod to the Top Gun franchise on his velvet shoes, which featured a jet plane design. Prince William previously served as a pilot in the Royal Air Force, as did his brother, Prince Harry.
The film’s star, Tom Cruise, reportedly feels he has “a lot in common” with the Duke of Sussex. “We both love England and we’re both aviators, we both love flying,” Cruise said on the red carpet, per My London.

Though the Duke and Duchess were each other’s dates to the event, it was Cruise who lent a hand to Middleton as she ascended a flight of stairs.

Ahead of the screening, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge also met with cast members Jennifer Connelly, Miles Teller, Glenn Powell, and Jon Hamm.

According to reports, this isn’t the first time Prince William and Kate Middleton have viewed the sequel to the 1986 classic film about a band of elite fighter pilots. In the 2022 sequel, Maverick (Cruise) makes his return to the Top Gun Naval Fighter Weapons School to shepherd a new group of airmen, including the son of his late best friend, Goose (Anthony Edwards), played by Teller. Cruise had reportedly invited the couple to an even more private screening in March after hearing Prince William was a fan of the original film.
Top Gun: Maverick hits theaters on May 24, 2022.

It seems a lot of thought has gone into the accessories that went into the Duchess’s suitcases ahead of her and Prince William’s high-profile tour. Kate previously touched down in Belize wearing a blue lace skirt suit (also Jenny Packham) with a pair of sapphire drop earrings and a necklace refashioned from Princess Diana’s sapphire suite, a gift to Diana from Saudi Arabia’s royal family on the occasion of her 1981 wedding.
Last night’s jewelry choice – earrings and a bracelet from the Queen’s emerald tassel parure – served as a sweet nod to Her Majesty, who celebrates her Platinum Jubilee this year (and makes her debut on the cover of British Vogue in the April issue). Kate’s frequent appearances in the crown jewels over the years are a sign of the Queen’s affection for her grandson’s wife. In April last year, the Duchess memorably wore a four-strand pearl choker on loan from Her Majesty to the funeral of Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.

With the easing of coronavirus travel restrictions coinciding with the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee year, this spring will see a number of Royal Family members representing the monarch on commemorative visits across the Commonwealth. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge kicked off their own trip in this capacity at the weekend, swapping the UK for the Caribbean, where they’ll be visiting Belize, Jamaica and The Bahamas from March 19 to 26.

Last night saw the royal couple attend a special reception hosted by the Governor General of Belize, at the historic Mayan ruins at Cahal Pech. Kate Middleton pulled out all the stops for the occasion, shimmering in an ethereal metallic pink gown by one of her go-to designers, The Vampire’s Wife, teamed with Jimmy Choos and a Mayan embroidered clutch bag. Prince William, meanwhile, looked dapper in a dark blue jacket and pale shirt. He delivered a speech at the event, saying, “Catherine and I are delighted to be here with you tonight in Belize at the beginning of our first official visit to the Caribbean,” and that he was “honored to convey the very warmest wishes from my grandmother, The Queen of Belize, on the occasion of her Platinum Jubilee.”

As the tour first got underway in Belize at the weekend, Middleton dressed for the occasion – and the climate – in two summery blue ensembles, nodding to the country’s flag, which features a coat of arms against a deep blue background. On arrival in the country, the Duchess disembarked from the plane in an elegant lace suit by one of her favorite designers, Jenny Packham. She accessorized the look with matching sapphire earrings and a necklace, reworked from a set that once belonged to her late mother-in-law, Diana, Princess of Wales.

The royal couple were out and about on Sunday for a visit to a cocoa plantation farm in southern Belize, the Che’il Mayan Chocolate Factory, where they were shown by chocolate maker Julio how he and his family create their organic product. Kate opted for a vibrant blue floral midi-dress by Tory Burch for the outing, teamed with an Anya Hindmarch clutch and fun blue, dangling earrings, by French brand Sézane. On both days, Prince William complemented his wife’s ensembles by opting for a pale blue suit, followed by a blue shirt.

The Duke and Duchess made sure to have some fun on their trip, joining in with music and dancing as they spent time with the Garifuna community and learnt about their traditions in Hopkins, a village in Belize, yesterday.

Kensington Palace previously released a statement about the tour, stating: “The Royal tour begins in Belize where Their Royal Highnesses will visit historic Mayan sites and celebrate the rich culture of the Garifuna community as well as exploring the country’s biodiversity. The Duke and Duchess will then travel to Jamaica where their visit will include engaging with the Jamaican Defence Force and celebrating the seminal legacy of Bob Marley and other ground-breaking Jamaican musicians alongside some of tomorrow’s stars. The Duke and Duchess’ visit will end in The Bahamas where they will spend time with communities across a number of islands and experience a world famous junkanoo parade.”

The couple have been on a number of tours together throughout their royal careers, including to New Zealand, Australia, Canada and the US. This is the first time they’ve made an official visit to the Caribbean, however, which the Duke’s younger brother, Prince Harry, previously visited to mark the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee in 2012.
