    Kensington Palace tweeted from the event.

    The next generation royals were at the premiere after they filmed secret cameos last year. William told the crew that he was a “total Star Wars geek,” The Daily Mail reported.

    The “Today” show reported that one of the film’s stars, John Boyega, confirmed the brothers filmed secret cameos. They play Stormtroopers in the eighth installment of the “Star Wars” franchise.
