These photos of Prince Harry and Prince William reliving their childhood on the Star Wars set are everything

The force is strong in their family.

They might be second and fourth in line to the British throne, but Wills and Harry are just big kids at heart. The blue-blooded brothers clearly had a blast (excuse the pun) on their visit to Pinewood Studios outside of London on Tuesday. The royal appearance was said to have been organised "to recognise the wealth of British creative talent involved in the production of the Star Wars films."

Thank you @starwars for a wonderful day!

But perhaps also because the princes were keen to geek out with the team behind the intergalactic blockbuster..?
Pinewood Studios has been home to a number of major blockbusters like Star Wars: The Force Awakens as well as some James Bond films and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.
On their tour, William (33) and Harry (31) met with the cast a crew behind the latest Star Wars sequel trilogy and got to check out some of the films' iconic props, costumes and creatures.
William, who's just returned home after a week-long trip to India and Bhutan with wife Kate, couldn't contain his glee as he bent down for a chat with robot BB8.
And is that a blush we see in snaps of him meeting Luke Skywalker (aka Mark Hamill) in the flesh?
Pilot Harry got to test out one of the crafts, and even got up close and personal with wookie Chewbacca.
[Ed's note: "Don't worry Chewwy, we wouldn't have been able to resist giving the flame-haired prince a cuddle either.]

Prince Harry has made a new friend...

Of course, no boys trip to the studio would be complete without an epic lightsaber battle...

Time for a @starwars laser battle!
