Princes William and Harry inspect the Stormtroopers at Star Wars premiere

Last night the stars aligned in London as the cast and crew attended the European Premier of Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

Princes Wiliam and Harry were also on hand, walking the red carpet while inspecting the troops, or rather stormtroopers, and ended the carpet with a bow from BB8.

While there is a whole lot of rumours that the princes make a cameo in the new film dressed as stormtroopers in an elevator, the cast danced around any questions regarding such an appearance.

Speaking to Sky News,  Oscar Isaac, who plays Poe Dameron, said: “That’s what I hear too, That’s exciting right? Let’s see if it’s true.”

Domhnall Gleeson, who is General Hux, didn’t give any better answers.

“I’m still not allowed to talk about the ending – I don’t know what I’m allowed to talk about.”

Adding on: “This is worse than before, much worse because we can only say a little bit, that’s so much harder than saying nothing.”

The late Carrie Fisher makes one last appearance in her iconic role as Princess Leia. Fisher died last December.

Mark Hamil, recalled his memories of working with her, saying: “Over the years we had our ups and downs, sometimes we were more like real brother and sister than we would like to admit, because we were highly critical,

“But she could make you feel like you were the most important person in the room, she was effortlessly funny.”

John Boyega commented to the Mirror on continuing the Star Wars journey without Fisher: “It’s coming up to a year (since her death) and it’s strange to see how it goes… I’m in something that will last a lifetime. I will pass away, everyone will, it’s crazy to see the fans will always appreciate what you’ve done.”

When inside the theatre, the cast lined up where they greeted Princes William and Harry. Audio was not clear, but the stars looked to be having a good time catching up with the two princes who visited the set earlier this year when it is expected they filmed their cameos.
