Meanwhile William, 39, demonstrated his sartorial flair in a midnight blue Alexander McQueen velvet dinner jacket, tuxedo trousers and velvet slippers embroidered with miniature fighter jets in a nod to the film.

Tom ET Online that it was 'very special' to have the Royals at the London premiere, while detailing his lifelong love of film.

He explained: 'It's very special. I'm here with the actors... I wanted them to have this kind of experience. And then to have a royal premiere in England, it's very special. It's very, very special. When I was a little kid I wanted to make movies.'

He continued: 'I wanted to make films, I wanted to fly, I wanted to travel the world... and meet people. I was always curious, like, "What's that person like?2 I wanted to sit down and talk to them. I wanted to live in their world. I would dream of that. If you'd look at my films, it is that. It is that sense of adventure, that sense of travel.'

The actor went on to say that he has been in 'pursuit of adventure' for his 'whole life' and has been 'constantly pushing myself' over the years, with the star adding that he didn't want to 'disappoint' the fans who had been waiting 36 years for the sequel.

The sequel to Tony Scott's classic 1986 blockbuster Top Gun has been unanimously praised in early reviews with one even declaring that it 'improves upon the original in every conceivable way.'

Tom, who is famous for doing his own stunts, is said to have trained to withstand g-force power and actually flew in real fighter jets for the sequel.

Peter Hoskin for the Daily Mail gave the film five stars, writing: 'Whenever the film threatens to become too cosy, it shocks itself – and us – back into the present with another madly ambitious action sequence.'

Tom underwent a full Aviation Survival Training Curriculum before going up in the US Navy F-18, as did his co-stars. They worked up to the supersonic jets by going up in a succession of slower planes first over many months.

Much has been made of Tom's insistence on real flying scenes, with no CGI work. He has said in numerous interviews that he refused to even talk about a Top Gun sequel unless they flew in real planes.

The official synopsis for the movie reads: 'After more than thirty years of service as one of the Navy’s top aviators, Pete "Maverick" Mitchell (Cruise) is where he belongs, pushing the envelope as a courageous test pilot and dodging the advancement in rank that would ground him.

'When he finds himself training a detachment of TOPGUN graduates for a specialised mission the likes of which no living pilot has ever seen, Maverick encounters Lt. Bradley Bradshaw (Teller), call sign: “Rooster,” the son of Maverick’s late friend and Radar Intercept Officer Lt. Nick Bradshaw, aka “Goose.”

'Facing an uncertain future and confronting the ghosts of his past, Maverick is drawn into a confrontation with his own deepest fears, culminating in a mission that demands the ultimate sacrifice from those who will be chosen to fly it.'

Top Gun: Maverick is soaring into UK cinemas on May 25 and May 27 in the US.
