Princes William and Harry got to pay a special visit to the set of a little movie called Star Wars: Episode VIII and had their experience documented with a series of photos posted to The British Monarchy Facebook page.

There are also glimpses of an X-wing in many of the shots, indicating the set is a Resistance hangar:
