Prince Harry and Prince William turned heads on the red carpet for the UK premiere of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, posing with Stormtroopers and droid BB-8.
The royals are believed to have made a cameo appearance in the movie after filming scenes during a “private tour of Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire last year”, the UK’s Telegraph reports.Camille Grammer opens up about cancer diagnosis
Dressed as Stormtroopers, Wills and Harry reportedly give Benicio Del Toro a slap on the backside in the uncredited roles.
Bond star Daniel Craig had the same cameo — hidden under a Stormtrooper costume — in 2015’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
“The Princes dressed up in full Stormtrooper gear and filmed a scene in which Rey and Finn infiltrate a secret base,” a source told the Daily Mail.Controversies rock Hollywood in 2017
“The rebel characters are in a lift with Benicio Del Toro’s character when a group of Stormtroopers enter — two of them are William and Harry.”
Harry and Wills were joined by Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver and Mark Hamill at Royal Albert Hall in London.
Ridley, 25, who plays Jedi Rey in the latest Star Wars instalment, sported a black Calvin Klein dress with an asymmetric neckline as she posed with co-star Hammil, who plays Luke Skywalker.Assault laws in focus amid Weinstein saga
“I actually felt more nervous because I didn’t know what I was doing the first time around, and you kind of think, how am I supposed to do something again when I didn’t know what I did the first time?,” Ridley said, according to the Daily Mail.
“And I think because people responded so well to [co-star] John [Boyega] and I together that was a big thing too, thinking how are people going to respond when we’re not together. So it was nerve-racking.
