City workers and cyclists looked on in surprise as the hoard of gentle-folk were also spotted at various locations across the capital – including Millennium Bridge, Waterloo Station and Covent Garden.

The images were released to mark the arrival of new movie, The King’s Man, which opens in cinemas nationwide on 26 December.

The Crown pub in Brewer Strett, Soho, was also rebranded as The King’s Man Tavern, where punters will be able to enjoy drinks in a pub inspired by the franchise.

The day of movie activity also saw an impressive projection display held at the world’s most renowned military academy – The Royal Military Academy Sandhurst – which saw the Old College Building illuminated by the iconic The King’s Man logo.

On Sunday evening, The London Eye was also lit up in celebration of The King’s Man franchise, through the use of AI technology to light the landmark up with the logo.

The new film is a prequel to the much-loved action movies, Kingsman: Secret Service and Kingsman: The Golden Circle.

It follows a collection of history’s worst tyrants and criminal masterminds as they gather to plot a war to wipe out millions – and one man’s race against time to stop them, sparking the origin of The Kingsman.

Starring Ralph Fiennes, Gemma Arterton, Rhys Ifans, Dijmon Hounsou and Tom Hollander, the movie is set in early 1900s London as world superpowers England, Russia and Germany clash heads on the brink of World War 1.
