Prince Harry turned out to help Daniel Craig celebrate the world premiere of Quantum of Solace in London Wednesday night.

So he must be a huge fan of the blond Bond, right? Well ... not exactly.

Before the movie began, Harry and his older brother, Prince William, spent a half-hour outside chatting with 200 servicemen, military veterans and their families.

And high-spirited Harry made no secret of his favorite 007 star. "There's only one Bond," he told Stan Pepper, an 88-year-old veteran. "Sean Connery."

That might comes as a bit of a blow to Craig, the reigning James Bond, who strutted the nearby red carpet with girlfriend Satsuki Mitchell.

But the actor – who earned raves for his first super-spy outing in Casino Royale – was also happy to play favorites.

Asked which Bond Girl he prefers, Craig told reporters, "the one on my arm, of course."

His good arm, that is. The actor – who continues to recover from shoulder surgery – wore a sling over his tuxedo.
