Princes William and Harry Apparently Play Stormtroopers in Star Wars: Episode VIII

Some people get all the luck. As if living lavish lifestyles at expense of us commoners’ and being on permanent holiday wasn’t enough, Princes William and Harry have reportedly bagged not-so-secret cameo appearances in Star Wars: Episode VIII.

The dynamic duo were photographed on the set last week -- remember our caption competition? -- and, according to the Daily Mail, got to don a pair of Stormtrooper outfits and film a scene with Benicio del Toro. As their faces will be covered up, it could prove a little tricky to spot them in the movie. However, we’re going to keep our ears tuned for the odd racist-sounding murmur and our eyes peeled for stray wisps of ginger hair, and, naturally, Nazi armbands.

"The line given was that they were going to have lunch and a private tour of the rest of the set," said the Daily Mail's source. "What really happened is that the director came over and told them it was time to ‘get suited' and off they went to the wardrobe department."

At least Harry’s military training wasn't a complete waste. [DailyMail via Verge]
