The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall attend the premiere of 1917

Tonight, The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall attended the Royal Film Performance of new film ‘1917’ in aid of the Film and TV Charity.

This is the 71st Royal Film Performance to be delivered in aid of the charity, and proceeds from the evening will help to improve mental health support for the Film and Television sector.

During the premiere at Leicester Square in London, Their Royal Highnesses met supporters and staff of the charity, as well as actors in the film including Mark Strong, Richard Madden and Andrew Scott.

Before taking to their seats, The Prince and The Duchess were given programmes for the film by Celia Chapman, sister of lead actor Dean-Charles Chapman; and Izzy and Jess Scott, whose family were previously supported by the charity.

The Royal Film Performance has also previously been attended by The Queen, who has been Patron of the Film and TV Charity since 1952.
