Prince William and Prince Harry visit the set of Star Wars

Jedis-in-training film set in London. The royal brothers enjoyed some time together as they 'geeked' out over the iconic props used in the movies at Pinewood Studios.


While William brandished protaganist Rey's blue lightsaber, Harry opted for that wielded by villain Kylo Ren (played by Adam Driver in the film). Unlike in the movie, though, it seems that Harry had a bit of an edge on his older brother.

Prince William, who is President of the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA), and his younger brother were given an exclusive tour of the film set, with the visit highlighting the wealth of British creative talent involved in the production of the Star Wars films.

The Princes also got the opportunity to meet Mark Hamill, aka Luke Skywalker, and legendary Wookiee warrior Chewbacca, who appeared to strike up a special bond with Prince Harry. The pair shared a hug, while Prince William took a closer look at the adorable BB-8 droid.


William and Harry visited production workshops and were introduced to the specialist creative teams working behind the scenes on the Star Wars films. They were also shown the production process for some of the most iconic props, costumes and creatures used in the new Star Wars features – including the original lightsaber.
