Ever since Prince William and Prince Harry visited the set of Star Wars: The Last Jedi a year back, rumors have been simmering that they stopped by for more than a behind-the-scenes tour and a mock lightsaber duel. The Daily Mail reported and/or speculated at the time that the royal brothers had filmed cameos as Stormtroopers, following in the footsteps of Daniel Craig in The Force Awakens.
Now actor John Boyega has neither-confirmed-nor-denied the rumor, in a way that kind of makes us suspect it's true. Asked about the recent announcement that British boyband singer Gary Barlow would appear in the movie, Boyega told the BBC "I have no comment, but he does look good in a Star Wars suit." When the interviewer brought up the princes' maybe-cameo, Boyega said "No comment on that, but they look good too".

Meanwhile, the film's director, Rian Johnson, gave a similarly sly non-answer about the princes recently. "I have no idea what you're talking about. I have no clue," Johnson told Yahoo!, with a huge smile. "I can neither confirm nor deny." Which sure feels like a good indication that this is happening. This royal stormtrooper situation is as real as the love between Finn and Poe Dameron.
