The European premiere of Star Wars: The Last Jedi
Published 12 December 2017
The European Premiere of Star Wars: The Last Jedi was hosted in aid of The Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry
Attended by The Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry, The Royal Foundation invited more than 400 young people, military veterans and volunteers who have taken part in its programmes to join Their Royal Highnesses at the premiere.
There were representatives from Coach Core, Full Effect, and military programmes such as the Endeavour Fund. The premiere was an opportunity to recognise and celebrate people who have worked hard to change their lives and the lives of others.
On behalf of The Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry, The Royal Foundation also invited some of the families who were affected by the Grenfell Tower tragedy, alongside representatives of the local fire services and the charities and organisations who are now helping them recover and try to rebuild their lives.
Before the performance, Their Royal Highnesses met a selection of beneficiaries from The Royal Foundation and also some of the families and representatives of organisations working with those affected by the Grenfell Tower fire. Their Royal Highnesses then meet members of the film's cast and crew, along with senior executives from Walt Disney Studios and Lucasfilm and were presented with their very own Stormtrooper helmets before watching the latest in the Skywalker saga.
