It was a royal night at the Leicester Square when Prince Charles and his wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, came to attend the premiere of the Oscar-winning director Martin Scorsese's new 3D film "Hugo" at the Odeon cinema.

Scorsese, the king of drama and suspense, has made his first 3D family adventure film based on Brian Selznick's children's novel "The Invention of Hugo Cabret".

The Prince of Wales and his wife were the special guests at the premiere of the movie, which features Jude Law, Sir Ben Kingsley, Chloe Moretz , Asa Butterfield, Richard Griffiths and Helen McCrory.

Charles arrived for the premiere in a smart black suit, and his wife came wearing a dazzling long-sleeved silver sequined dress made by British designer Bruce Oldfield.

The royal pair were seen engrossed in conversation with the cast members including Scorsese and 14-year-old Chloe.

The film revolves around an orphan living a secret life, in the walls of a Paris train station. It captures the adventurous and magical journey of Hugo, who discovers a broken robot.

The movie will be released in UK cinemas Friday.
