Because you did not have the luck of being born to royalty, you did not get to tour the set of Star Wars VIII. Unless you are Prince William and Prince Harry, who did.

The princes headed to Pinewood Studios, where shooting on the eighth film in the franchise is currently taking place. According to their various social media accounts, the visit was to recognize "the wealth of British creative talent involved in producing the Star Wars films." 

Also so the brothers could engage in lightsaber duels and chat with BB-8.

As you'll see, they were joined by Mark Hamill, John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Daisy Ridley's head cast (what could that be for?), and director Rian Johnson.

Kate Middleton was not in attendance, as she is, of course, a massive Trekkie. (I made that up.)
