The Royal World Premiere of Skyfall
(2012) marked a rare reunion for the families of James Bond producers Harry Saltzman
and Albert R. Broccoli
and author Ian Fleming
on the franchise's 50th Anniversary year. Since Saltzman was able to secure the film right's for the 007 novels in 1962 from Fleming, given both men's shared experience as Intelligence operatives, the unique seating arrangement at Royal Albert Hall reflected that relationship. In the Royal Box adjacent to His Royal Highness Prince Charles
and the Duchess of Cornwall (Camilla Parker-Bowles
, the surviving family of Ian Fleming, including niece Lucy Fleming
, and cousin Sir Christopher Lee
, who also served in British Intelligence, were seated alongside Saltzman's daughter Hilary Saltzman
, son Steven Saltzman
, and Canadian print and broadcast journalist David Giammarco
, a longtime associate of the James Bond films and author of the book "For Your Eyes Only: Behind the Scenes of the James Bond Films". The Gala Charity Premiere of Skyfall
(2012) benefited retired members of Britain's Intelligence agencies, for which H.R.H. Prince Charles
is England's Royal Patron. See more
