Four Bonds turned up to the event with Pierce Brosnan, Roger Moore, George Lazenby and Timothy Dalton all at the screening.
Another star from the movie who attended was Halle Berry wearing a black and white Oscar de la Renta gown.
Berry said: "People love James Bond - men want to be him and women want to be with him. I didn't know how big Bond was until I became a part of it and it's absolutely thrilling."
Judi Dench, John Cleese, Rosamund Pike and Madonna also attended the event. Former Bond girls Maud Adams and Fiona Fullerton were also at the screening along with Shirley Bassey and Richard Kiel who played Jaws.
The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh greeted Pierce Brosnan at the Royal screening at the Albert Hall in aid of the Cinema and Television Benevolent Fund.
Introduced to Brosnan, the Queen said: "So you're the modern James Bond are you? I've met the other three downstairs."
Sir Sean Connery, the first and for many the best of the Bonds, was the only one who was not present.
The venue was transformed into an ice palace for the evening, in homage to the lair of Bond villain Gustav Graves, played by Toby Stephens.

Associated Press Article About The Premiere, Which Mentions Timothy:
Queen Joins Stars at Bond Premier by Thomas Wagner, Associated Press Writer.
LONDON (AP) - The world premier of the 20th James Bond film lit up central London on Monday night, with two firsts at such events: Queen Elizabeth II joined the superstars, and the venue was Royal Albert Hall.
Large crowds gathered outside the London landmark to watch the "Die Another Day" actors show up, including Pierce Brosnan, the suave 007; his new lady, Oscar winner Halle Berry; and Madonna who sings the movie's theme tune and plays the cameo role of fencing instructor Verity.
The queen and her husband, the Duke of Edinburgh, joined the flashy event because the movie was chosen as the Royal Film Performance to aid the Cinema and Television Benevolent Fund.
Introduced to Brosnan, the queen said: "So you're the modern James Bond are you? I've met the other three downstairs."
She was referring to George Lazenby, Timothy Dalton and Roger Moore. Sir Sean Connery, the very first of the Bonds, was the only one who didn't show up.
Brosnan, 49 - on his fourth outing as the secret agent - said he loves playing the part. "He's confident, he has style, he has a license to kill, and he has a wonderful way with women. From a male perspective you can't beat him," he said.
A bevy of former Bond girls also attended the premiere, including Maud Adams and Fiona Fullerton.
Berry, wearing a black-and-white Oscar de la Renta gown, said she was delighted to play Bond's latest girl, Jinx. But she also noted that unlike her predecessors, Jinx is a secret agent herself and more than a match for Brosnan's 007.
"Jinx is Bond's equal," she said. "Say what you want about Bond girls, and I know people do criticize them, but the women in these films have a great allure and people want to see them."
Madonna, who arrived with her husband Guy Ritchie, was dressed conservatively in a knee-length black cocktail dress and took the time to make sure she knew how to greet the queen.
Madonna practiced her curtsey in front of co-star John Cleese, and afterward said: "The queen asked me about Bond. I have never met her before, but surprisingly I wasn't nervous."
Royal Albert Hall was transformed into a glittering ice palace for the evening, similar to the lair of the latest Bond villain, Gustav Graves, played by Toby Stephens, the son of veteran actress Dame Maggie Smith.
"I've been watching Bond films since I was six years old, so getting to be in one was quite bizarre," said Stephens.
Grandstands were set up around the red-carpeted entrance so the large crowds of fans could watch the stars arrive. People standing further away could watch the event unfold on large, stadium-style movie screens.
Other stars at the premiere included Rosamund Pike, the 22-year-old Oxford University graduate who plays Miranda Frost; and Richard Kiel, who portrays one of 007's most famous enemies, Jaws.
"Die Another Day" is a milestone for Bond, being the 20th film in the series and marking the franchise's 40th anniversary.
Producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli said they were honored that it had been chosen as the annual Royal Film Performance.
"James Bond is the epitome of all things British," they said in a statement. "We have enjoyed making the films in England and having the opportunity to work with such brilliant technicians and artists.
"We are incredibly proud that this event will be held at the Royal Albert Hall in aid of such a worthy benefit for the British film community."
"Die Another Day," the first Bond film chosen for the honor, will be released in Britain on Wednesday.
Once again I would like to send a big thank you to James in London for sending me the contents of this page for our website.
