Mark Hamill’s hilarious memory of this royal meeting went viral all over again
Time to rewind the clock to 1980 and the royal premiere of The Empire Strikes Back in London attended by Princess Margaret.
We only mention this after Mark Hamill shared this picture with his explanation of exactly why he’s looking where he’s looking.
This photo was taken moments after Billy Dee informed me that direct eye contact with royalty was punishable by prison and/or beheading (note @realbdw's sly enjoyment of his prank, as @TheFrankOzJam looks on) Obviously, I wasn't taking any chances! #NoHeadlessHamsterPlease 🤯 pic.twitter.com/27bq4NOg6L

Not the first time he’s told this tale but if any story merits a repeat viewing, it’s this one.
LMFAO😂😂. I can't believe you believed him

The good thing though is that of all the royals likely to enjoy the joke it would have been Margaret.
