Prince William and Harry film Star Wars cameos

  • (Last updated: )

Prince William and Prince Harry have reportedly filmed cameo appearances for Star Wars Episode VIII during a private tour of the set of the upcoming Star Wars sequel at Pinewood Studios last week.

You won't recognise them though, as they are both reportedly dressed as First Order stormtroopers, similar to James Bond actor Daniel Craig's appearance in The Force Awakens.

The Duke of Cambridge and his younger brother also met with actors of the film, apparently receiving wookiee-hugs from Chewbacca, leading Mark Hamill to comment that "if I went towards royalty with my arms outstretched I would get arrested". The Royals also dueled with lightsabers and posed in a starfighter that looks suspiciously like an A-wing, last seen in Return of the Jedi.

A source told the Mail on Sunday that the Princes appear in an elevator scene with Benicia del Toro’s character which sees Rey and Finn infiltrate a secret base. After filming, Prince William reportedly delivered a birthday cake to a stunned crew member while still wearing his sotrmtrooper outfit.
