Prince William and Kate Middleton were the guests of honor at last night’s premiere of Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom, the biopic based on Nelson Mandela's incredible story of struggle and perseverance.
But as the credits rolled and the theater erupted into a standing ovation of praise for the film, word then spread of the great leader’s passing!
While leaving the Leicester Square cinema, Prince William stopped to comment on the sad news of Nelson Mandela’s death. He solemnly shared:
The world has lost a great leader today.
And in what might be a bittersweet coincidence, Nelson Mandela’s incredible story of courage and conviction was made into a movie that just premiered tonight in London.
The former South African president’s daughter Zindzi Mandela was in attendance with Prince William and Kate Middleton and walked the red carpet on her way into the film about her father.
Such sad news, but Zindzi has a lot to be proud of in her father's never ending fight for freedom.
Rest in peace, Mr. Mandela.

To honor the great Nelson Mandela, a man whom we've just learned has sadly passed away, Kate Middleton and Prince William put on their fanciest clothes to attend the premiere of Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom in London.
The Duchess looked absolutely stunning in a recycled cream Roland Mouret long-sleeved gown with a short slit that showed off her royal calves, and she paired the exquisite number with a silver necklace from Zara.
Talk about high-low — that necklace is gonna fly off shelves.
Black Prada pumps and a Mulberry clutch matched the black velvet sash in her ponytail and put the perfect finishing touch on her look!
And, obvi, Prince William looked dashing as always. We didn't forget him!
Both royals sincerely stunned while paying homage to a man who impacted the world in so many ways we can't even begin to express our gratitude for.

When we saw Kate Middleton on the volleyball court, we were SUPER impressed with her incredible ability to bump and spike in 5-inch wedges!
But when we recently saw her hubby Prince William on the court, it was a WHOLE different story!
The Duke of Cambridge made his way to the Westway Sports Centre in west London where he got a chance to meet some volleyballing youngsters!
But when the prince tried to get involved in the game, things got a tad bit ugly! In fact, one kid said he "felt sorry" that Prince William was unable to return his serves! Yikes!
Looks like he might want to consider getting a few lessons from Kate! LOLz!
Ch-ch-check out more pics of Prince William looking a little lost on the volleyball court (below)!

We always knew the Duke of Cambridge was a bit of a daredevil!!
Prince William had a pretty exciting weekend as he made his way to the Motorcycle Live exhibit at the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham to check out some of the hottest crotch rockets the UK has to offer!
But he wasn't there to just LOOK at the sweet bikes. He actually got a chance to get on top and get a taste of what life would be like if he was the next James Bond!
Unfortunately his dreams of feeling the wind through his hair were cut short when he realized there wasn't even enough room to put on a baby seat for Prince George!
Luckily, the hosts at the exhibit were prepared and even had a mini-motorcycle that was JUST the right size for the royal cutie pie! Now he just needs to get the green light from Kate Middleton!
Ch-ch-check out the adorable little bike fit for a prince …AFTER THE JUMP!!!
