Prince William ‘exposed’ to lifestyle of MI6’s finest as he adopted new guise as spy

However, it was not the first time the Prince got an insight into the life of a spy. The Duke of Cambridge, 39, may have watched Daniel Craig on the big screen after the film was delayed for over a year, but back in 2019 the royal spent three weeks with the real James Bond in MI6.

Two years ago, William spent weeks with teams in the UK’s Secret Intelligence Service which features in the James Bond films as 007’s employer.

The 39-year-old also spent time with the Security Service MI5 and the ­listening outpost GCHQ.

At the time, senior royal sources told the Mirror: “Prince William was exposed to the full range of counter-terrorism operations, from working with the Islamist counter-terror teams, the threat of the Far Right in Britain, the Real IRA and even our old Cold War enemies.

“The experience gave him a unique insight into the threat to Britain and the British people.”

Several healthcare workers and members of the armed forces were also in attendance.

No Time To Die is the 25th Bond film and it will be the last movie featuring Craig as 007.

The film was delayed for more than a year due to the Covid pandemic, but will be released in UK cinemas on Thursday.

The premiere also supports charities helping serving and former members of the UK’s three intelligence agencies.

These include the Secret Intelligence Service (known also as MI6), the Security Service (MI5) and GCHQ.
