The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince William and his bride, Catherine, stepped out in the London rain to celebrate the premiere of "War Horse" on Sunday.

At a screening on the West End the newlyweds met Hollywood royalty Steven Spielberg and his star, Jeremy Irvine (also a Brit), sharing the same carpet with Joey — the horse that shares top billing with Irvine.

"The fact that they're here to watch my fat face on a cinema screen is bizarre," Irvine said, according to People. "It's such a thrill. And also for their charity. It's a great cause."

After the film, the couple hosted a reception at Buckingham Palace in the Queen's Gallery to benefit the Foundation of Prince William and Prince Harry, which works to help returning soldiers adjust to civilian living. 

In floor-length sparkling Alice Temperley gown, Duchess Kate was probably excited for some glamour. On Monday she'll turn 30, with reports indicating she'll enjoy a low-key celebration with friends and family.
