Jennifer Connelly Opens Up About 'Special' Moment With Prince William At Top Gun Premiere

Jennifer Connelly opened
up about what it was like to meet the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince
William and Kate Middleton, at the Top Gun: Maverick premiere earlier
this month.

The actress shared that the
meeting with the Duke, in particular, was a special one since it tied back to
her meeting with his mother, Princess Diana.

She revealed that this was her
second royal premiere following one for the 1986 movie Labyrinth, where
she got to meet the late Princess of Wales.

Speaking to Entertainment
Tonight about the full-circle moment, Jennifer said: “[In] 1986, yes,
for the premiere of Labyrinth, which was a movie I did when I was a teenager…I
got to meet William’s mom, [Princess] Diana.”

She termed the premiere and
getting to meet the royal a “very special experience,” explaining
that she did think instantly of meeting his mother all those years ago as she
spoke to him.

The star did add, however,
that she was quite overwhelmed by the moment, saying she had “no
recollection” of what they talked about.

Jennifer continued: “You
think about the protocols that they ask you to be mindful of when meeting them
and of course, you know, Kate and William were both so gracious and reached out
and shook our hands and they are just impeccable.”

The actress is starring
alongside Tom Cruise in the highly-anticipated Top Gun sequel
and recently spoke about what it was like taking to the skies with him – for
real!

“He did pilot the
plane,” she told Den of Geek of the surreal moment when they
took flight. “It’s a very small plane, so it’s just the two of us in there
and it was an amazing experience.

“He’s so good at so many
things, and of course, he was also an excellent pilot, so I was able to just
sort of relaxing and enjoy that extraordinary experience while knowing that he was
flying.”
