On the 26th of April 2013, Harry, William and Kate carried out a joint engagement in Leavesden, Hertfordshire. The royal trio officially opened the new Warner Brothers Studios.
William, Kate and Harry explored iconic sets and discovered the behind-the-scenes secrets of filmmaking.
The couple got to tour some of the original Harry Potter sets from the popular film series, which has now been fashioned into a tourist attraction, “The Making of Harry Potter Tour.”
500 excited children and parents also attended the engagement. They were selected from the three royals’ charities.
During the Harry Potter portion of the tour, Their Royal Highnesses were presented with their own wands, hand-carved by prop-making expert Pierre Bohanna.

In the studios, the trio were lucky enough to see many original props from a range of films, including Batman. Excited William was on top form, armed with a range of hilarious quips, including:

William, Kate and Harry got down to business after the tour. They held a meeting for The Charities Forum. The meeting took place in the original “Great Hall” set from the Potter movies.
