There was much hum about Prince William and Prince Harry making their cameo entrance in the latest Star Wars movie, The Last Jedi.

But as shortly as we were expecting their onscreen scene, they were cut from the final edit.

Did the Palace not approve of the princes holding on a side job?

Was their behaving just not up to scratch?

Was there an epic compensate brawl between Harry and Chewie?

Turns out, they were cut from the finish product for a very elementary reason: they were too tall.

You see, Stormtroopers have a very despotic tallness limit, apparently, and the royals were soaring over them – with William coming in at 6’2″ and Harry 6’1″.

So that put a tool in their behaving career.

According to Daily Mail, a source said: ‘Stormtroopers have to be accurately 5ft 11in. At the time we shot it we consider the feeling was that the stage would make the final movie.

‘Everyone feels bad that William and Harry lost out on their big moment. However, the stage just didn’t work for the final cut so it was left out.’

The announcement reported the royals filmed at Pinewood studios in Apr 2016 for a stage inside a lift, with one of them slapping Benicio del Toro’s impression DJ on the bum as he, along with rebels Rey (Daisy Ridley) and Finn (John Boyega) infiltrated a secret base.

However we had a feeling the princes didn’t make the cut before the film was released, after John let it trip to This Morning that he’d apologised to the royals for their brief behaving stint

He said: ‘I did privately apologize to them [the Princes] yesterday and said, “Sorry you were cut out of the film.” And Will was like, “I substantially just need to work some-more on the skills.” we was like, “Maybe, bruv”.’

However, not prolonged after his spoiler, John’s representative announced he was joking.

Which, evidently, was a fun in itself.
