Cruise, who took part in the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations last weekend, introduced the royal couple to his co-stars Jennifer Connelly, Jon Hamm and Miles Teller.

Ahead of the premiere, Cruise, 59, said he and the Duke of Cambridge ‘have a lot in common’ as he spoke of his admiration for the royal. 

‘We have a lot in common. We both love England and we’re both aviators, we both love flying,’ he said. 

The actor also expressed his joy to be back on the red carpet, saying: ‘I love what I do, I’ve always enjoyed it and I’m enjoying it even more now. ‘Particularly after the last couple of years, just to have an event like this is extraordinary.’ 

Maverick, which has so far received rave reviews from critics, sees Hollywood star Cruise reprise the role of US naval aviator Pete Mitchell and is being released 36 years after the 1986 original.

Alfie Everett-Fletcher, nine, who met William at the cinema, said: ‘He asked me what I liked about the last one, the things I like, if I like jets and planes and motorbikes.’

Alfie said William told him he is a ‘big fan’ of the film and ‘cars and stuff’.

Alfie also said William told him his own children were ‘jealous’ to miss the premiere.

Poppy Saunders, 11, said it was ‘really good’ to meet Kate and give her a bunch of flowers outside the auditorium, although she was ‘really nervous’.

She said: ‘I gave the flowers and shook hands and she said ‘hello Poppy’. She said a lot about how the kids love the film as well.’

Her mother Linsay Saunders added: ‘She said she liked sweet peas because there were sweet peas in the flowers.’

On the young royals, Ms Saunders said Kate told them ‘they wished they were here tonight’.

She added: ‘And I said ‘well, it is a school night’.’

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were welcomed to the premiere by Lord Lieutenant Sir Kenneth Olisa, Cameron Saunders, Acting Chair of The Film and TV Charity and Alex Pumfrey, the organisation’s CEO.

According to reports Kate and William were honoured with their own VIP preview of the new film at a London cinema last month after Cruise heard William was a big fan of the original 1986 film.

The royals were joined by a whole host of A-listers at the event – posing in front of a real Typhoon plane jet outside the central cinema.

Among them was Carol Vorderman, 61, who got into the spirit of things by slipping into a tight fitting flight suit with a pair of aviator sunglasses hanging from her chest.

Miss Vorderman, who got her pilot’s licence back in 2014, accentuated her waist with a tight fitting belt around the suit, finishing the look with a simple black clutch bag.

In a nod to her former role as Countdown’s numbers maestro and Cruise’s Top Gun character Maverick, the name on her flight suit read ‘Matherick’.

She said of the outfit: ‘Strictly speaking it should be a gown on the red carpet tonight but this is my little homage to the original Top Gun and to my passion for aviation.’

Cruise’s co-star Jennifer Connelly, 51, looked elegant in a cream patterned dress – just hours after also jetting in from the Cannes Film Festival.

Also in attendance at the Leicester Square event – where fans waited for hours in the hope of catching a glimpse of Cruise – was Hayley Atwell.

The pair have been plagued with rumours they are dating but their current relationship status is unclear following reports of a break-up.

The event is being held as a fundraising event in aid of The Film and TV Charity, which supports people working behind the scenes in the UK’s screen sector.

Earlier this month, Cruise made a dramatic entrance at the US premiere of the film, landing a helicopter on an aircraft carrier in San Diego, California.

The film shown was A Matter Of Life And Death starring David Niven.

The most recent performance featured a screening of First World War epic 1917, directed by Sir Sam Mendes, and took place in 2019 at the Odeon Luxe in Leicester Square with the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall in attendance.

On Sunday he attended an event celebrating the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in Windsor. Last night he was in Cannes to promote the film at the annual Film Festival. 

Tonight marks the 76th Royal Film Performance.  

Initially called the Royal Command Film Performance, the first Royal Film Performance took place at the Empire Cinema in Leicester Square in 1946 and was attended by King George VI and Queen Elizabeth, and Princesses Elizabeth and Margaret.
