Kate Middleton has once again been shunned. Reports indicate that her husband Prince William and her brother-in-law Prince Harry recently filmed cameos for an upcoming Star Wars film without her. In fact, actor John Boyega let the cat out of the bag by telling media outlets that the royal brothers filmed a cameo, although it’s unlikely that the scene will make it to the final cut.
John said that Prince William and Prince Harry had non-speaking parts as Stormtroopers. This supposedly happened last April when William and Harry visited Pinewood Studios during their all access tour of a Star Wars set.
Speaking to BBC Radio 4, John said, “I think they took that scene out. I’ve had enough with those secrets. They came on set. They were there. I’m sick of hiding it. I think it was leaked, anyway. There were images. Every time I get asked, I have to dodge it. I’m tired of dodging it. They were there. So was Tom Hardy.”
For Kate Middleton, this absolutely has to hurt. If there’s one person in the royal family who would love to appear or participate in a Hollywood movie, it’s Kate Middleton. The Duchess has made it no secret in the past that she loves to rub elbows with the Hollywood elite and walk on the red carpet beside them at huge premieres and events, too. That’s why she did whatever it took to attend the BAFTA awards earlier this year even though no one wanted her there. A lot of A-list celebrities were worried that the Duchess would steal their thunder on the red carpet. Yet that’s exactly what happened.
Many royal observers aren’t surprised that Kate Middleton wasn’t asked to film a cameo with Prince William and Prince Harry. After all, it’s a Star Wars film, not a Kate Middleton movie. Plus, Queen Elizabeth has always made it pretty clear that she wants to keep the royal family as far away from Hollywood as possible. The last thing she wants to see is someone like Kate Middleton spending her weekends socializing with Hollywood stars and celebrities rather than focusing on her royal duties and obligations.
So far Buckingham Palace has not made any comments about Prince William and Prince Harry’s supposed cameos. In the meantime, don’t forget to check back with CDL for all the latest news and updates on Prince William and Kate Middleton along with the entire royal family right here!
