Prince William And Kate Open New Film Studio, She Plays With His Magic Wand

Expectant parents Prince William and Kate officially opened a new film studio today where the Harry Potter films were made. They were joined by Prince Harry.

During their visit to the Warner Bros. studios in Hertfordshire, UK, the Royal couple got their hands on some ‘magic’ wands and appeared to have great fun jousting with each other.

Kate, who is now just three months away from her due month of July, wore a black jacket and an inexpensive polka dot Topshop dress that showed off her Royal baby bump.

As well as housing a huge array of Potter stock, the studio also had on display the vehicles from the Batman trilogy also made by Warner Bros.

Prince William, known for his appreciation of fast cars, jumped on the ‘Batpod’ and proceeded to lean forward to move the handlebars of the vehicle as Prince and Kate watched amused.

The young Duke of Cambridge quipped: “Where’s the start button?,” adding,”It’s awesome, absolutely incredible.”

Meanwhile, Prince Harry cupped his fingers beside Prince William’s head in an impression of Batman’s famously adorned ears and said “You need the ears.”

The brothers continued to have fun with the Batmobile, even revving up the real 5.7-liter engine.

Prince William, Harry and Kate were also introduced to Harry Potter author JK Rowling, local dignitaries and film executives during their tour of the sprawling compound.

Prince William marked the occasion by giving a speech at the film studio.

The $155 million (£100 million) studio complex was the site for all eight Harry Potter films, the James Bond film Goldeneye, the first of the Star Wars prequel films, and gothic horror Sleepy Hollow.

Apart from the studio visit, Kate and her baby bump were most recently seen at the annual National Review of Queen’s Scouts at Windsor Castle on Sunday.

Recent reports of the young couple’s plans for their summer arrival revealed Kate and Prince William reportedly spent $1.5 million in renovations to the interior of their Kensington Palace apartment in London.

Full details on the decoration for the nursery are being kept under wraps, but a friend of the couple recently told Vanity Fair magazine.

“Some might say it’s a little dull, but they love it. I saw William recently and he is so happy.”

“They’ve grown out of clubbing and have no interest in parties. They just enjoy being together at home. No one bothers them in Anglesey, there are few paparazzi, and they love the countryside.”
