Dame Judi Dench joined members of the Royal Family and other invited guests for a special performance at Windsor Castle.

The King and Queen hosted the Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC) which performed a selection of excerpts from various plays to mark a special occasion.

"The reception marks the 400th anniversary of the publication of the First Folio – or collection of Shakespeare’s plays – a copy of which remains in the Royal Library at Windsor," the Royal Family announced on the official social media account for the family, alongside a collection of clips from the evening.

Top actors from the RSC took to the stage in front of a seated audience featuring King Charles and Queen Camilla in the front row.

Other invited guests included veteran actor Dame Judi Dench, who looked chic in an all-black look which she accessorised with an embroidered scarf. Helena Bonham Carter was also in attendance wearing a black and sheer look, decorated with floral details.

Dame Judi Dench has a long history with the Royal Family, and recently gave a special talk in conversation with Giles Brandreth at The Queen's Reading Room Literary Festival at Hampton Court Palace. Queen Camilla made a surprise appearance in the audience during the event.
