British Royals to Visit the 'Episode VIII' Set This Week

By: Dominic Jones

The Star Wars films are no stranger to royalty, with beloved characters like Princess Leia and Queen Amidala, but some actual British royalty will be visiting the set of Star Wars Episode VIII at Pinewood Studios in London later this week.  Prince William and Prince Harry will be given a tour of the set by the film's star Daisy Ridley, who is reprising her role as Rey from The Force Awakens, and will also meet Luke Skywalker actor Mark Hamill and director Rian Johnson.  The Princes visit will, according to the Kensington Palace Twitter account, "recognise the wealth of fantastic British creative talent involved in the production of the Star Wars films."

Perhaps the Princes will suit up as stormtroopers for a scene in the next film.  Or better yet, maybe they'll be able to hook us up with a detailed report from the set...
