Prince William & Prince Harry enjoy Star Wars night out at London premiere

Princes William and Harry made a rare joint public trip to the cinema on Tuesday (12Dec17) to check out the new Star Wars movie.

Security concerns often prevent the royal brothers, both heirs to the throne, from attending the same public events, but Harry and William enjoyed a night out without their partners at the Royal Albert Hall in London.

The princes appear in Star Wars: The Last Jedi as stormtroopers, and they were invited to the star-studded premiere as special guests.

William and Harry followed cast members Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Mark Hamill, and Oscar Isaac on the red carpet, smiling as they passed a line of stormtroopers.

The premiere was a big charity event - it supported the brothers' Royal Foundation, and some of the families who lost their homes in London's Grenfell Tower tragedy in June (17) were invited to attend the special screening and meet the stars of the film, which is released on 15 December (17).
