Prince William and Henry got to live every Star Wars fan's dream last year when they visited the set of the latest installment in the Star Wars franchise, The Last Jedi. The two princes shared photos of themselves with the cast of the upcoming blockbuster on the set in Europe where most of The Last Jedi was filmed.

A source close to the film said the two princes "Filmed a scene in which Rey and Finn infiltrate a secret base. The rebel characters are in a lift with Benicio del Toro's character when a group of Stormtroopers enters - two of whom are William and Harry." The exciting cameo is not the first in recent history, James Bond actor Daniel Craig had a small cameo where he too donned the iconic white armor to play a Stormtrooper in The Force Awakens.
It is unlikely Prince William and Prince Henry will be recognizable on screen but the knowledge they are behind the helmets of villainous Stormtroopers and a spot in the credits is enough to prove the two royals were a part of the film.
The Last Jedi is set to make a highly anticipated opening in theaters all across the globe December 14, 2017.
