Queen Elizabeth II is definitely on the list of people least likely to pop up at a Hollywood premiere -- but a royal premiere is something quite different.

Narnia-gallery The queen and Prince Philip greeted cast and crew at the world premiere of "The Chronicles of Narnia: Voyage of the Dawn Treader" on Tuesday night in London.

Among cast members attending: Liam Neeson (the voice of lion Aslan), Ben Barnes, Georgie Henley, Laura Brent, William Moseley, Anna Popplewell, Skander Keynes and William Poulter. Director Michael Apted was there as well, with his wife, Page. Click the pic of Barnes and Henley at right for more photos from the premiere.

"Dawn Treader," the third in the "Narnia" franchise based on the C.S. Lewis books, opens in U.S. theaters Dec. 10.
