This evening, London Town was the host for the Royal UK Premiere of Steven Spielberg’s new movie, War Horse. What made it even more special was that The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (or William and Kate to their friends) were in attendance. Joining them was the legendary director himself accompanied by the main star of the movie, Joey the horse and cat members Emily Watson, David Thewlis, Peter Mullan, Niels Arestrup, Tom Hiddleston, Jeremy Irvine, Benedict Cumberbatch and Toby Kebbel.

The Royal UK Premiere was in  aid of The Foundation of Prince William and Prince Harry. Joining William and Kate for this special screening were 600 servicemen and women and their families. Our man on the ground, Ben Mortimer was on the red carpet ready to catch the stars as they walk by so keep your eyes peeled for his report of the evening later today.

War Horse is released in the UK this Friday 13th January.
