Princes William and Harry are ready to stand shoulder to shoulder with another famous countryman of theirs: James Bond.

The two will join leading man Daniel Craig and other stars of Quantum of Solace for the film's world premiere Oct. 29 in London, the producers of the 007 series announced Wednesday.

Per the princes' request, proceeds from the event will go to benefit two charities: Help for Heroes, which aids wounded servicemen and women, and the Royal British Legion, which provides support to the serving and ex-Service community and their families.

Also due to attend the gala are Dame Judi Dench and Gemma Arterton, who costar in the film, which picks up one hour after the conclusion of Bond's last escapade, 2006's Casino Royale, according to producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli.

The movie – the 22nd entry in the Bond franchise – opens in the U.S. on Nov. 7. Alicia Keys and Jack White have already recorded the title tune, to be released by J Records Oct. 28.
