Why was Mark Hamill looking down when he met Princess Margaret? He just tweeted the reason


Mark Hamill has sent social media into overdrive with a throwback picture of him meeting Princess Margaret in London while promoting Star Wars sequel, The Empire Strikes Back. Hamill, then 29, says that Billy Dee pranked him with a hilarious piece of protocol advice moments before the royal encounter.

As a result, Hamill looked directly at the floor when he shook hands with Princess Margaret with the awkward moment caught on camera.

Hamill uploaded the vintage photo yesterday and captioned it: “This photo was taken moments after Billy Dee informed me that direct eye contact with royalty was punishable by prison and/or beheading (note Billy’s sly enjoyment of his prank, as Frank Oz looks on).


“Obviously, I wasn’t taking any chances! #NoHeadlessHamsterPlease.”

Frank Oz, who played Yoda in the franchise, hilariously replied: “Ohh! I always wondered why you did that. I just thought you were checking out her shoes.”

In 1997, he was snapped sharing a joke with Prince Charles at the Star Wars: Special Edition premiere.

And in 2016, it was revealed Hamill spent time with Prince Harry and Prince William on the set of Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

Hamill tweeted a photograph of them together days after Archie was born and claimed he had a hand in choosing his name.


He said: “Here’s me with William and Harry pitching the idea of naming any future royal baby after their favourite Star Wars actor.

“Happy they chose Archie HARRISON Mountbatten-Windsor but regret not being more specific. Should have pitched favourite Star Wars actor WHO PLAYED LUKE.”
