Even the most famous celebs get a little star struck sometimes. For Billie Eilish — singer-songwriter, Grammy winner, fashion icon — meeting royalty was the ultimate celebrity sighting.
The pop star and her older brother, Finneas, were on hand at the London premiere of the new James Bond flick, No Time to Die, on Sept. 28 when she crossed paths with Prince William and Kate, Duchess of Cambridge. Having co-written the new Bond song, “No Time to Die”, with her brother, Eilish was in the receiving line inside the Royal Albert Hall with the the cast when she came face-to-face with the future king and queen — and the adorable moment was caught by photographers.
A visibly giddy Eilish couldn’t tear the smile from her face as she shook hands and chatted with Kate, who wore a Greek goddess-inspired Jenny Packham dress to the premiere.
The duke and duchess chatted with Eilish, along with Bond stars Daniel Craig, Rami Malek, Lea Seydoux, Phoebe Waller Bridge and Ana de Armas. In a recent interview with the BBC prior to the event, Eilish said, “It’s going to be crazy… Oh my god, I’m going to pee myself.” (Thankfully, she didn’t.)
Will and Kate were equally excited to support the latest Bond film (Craig’s last one as Agent 007), writing on their official Instagram, “Wonderful to see @007 back on our big screens! No Time To Die is the 25th Bond film and Daniel Craig’s last after 15 years in the role. It showcases the inspirational work of actors, musicians, directors, cinematographers and all those involved in making the film so special.”

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge weren’t the only royals on hand, either. The couple were joined by Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, who are also self-professed Bond fans.
