Actor Mark Hamill is best known for portraying Jedi Luke Skywalker since 1977.
While watching the Platinum Jubilee coverage, the Joker voice actor from the Batman animated series took to Twitter to make a joke.
Unfortunately, it seems he mixed up Prince Louis and Prince George!

On Friday, June 3, Mark Hamill tweeted, “Feeling very Prince George-ish today,” reposting one of the viral pictures of one of the Royal Children screaming with their hands covering their ears beside Queen Elizabeth II herself.
The only problem? That’s not Prince George. That’s Prince Louis. Many fans were quick to point out Mark Hamill’s royal fumble!
Tbf I can’t tell them apart either. There’s one called Charlotte too, isn’t there?

“Prince Louis,” one user quickly corrected him. “I know there are a lot…”
“Tbf I can’t tell them apart either,” another user added. “There’s one called Charlotte too, isn’t there?”
Guys if Luke Skywalker says this is George, we just rename the kid.

To be even more fair, all three of the children strongly resemble their father, William. It makes one wonder if Kate’s genes were anywhere around at the time of conception.

“To be fair the two brothers look very alike,” one user commented.

This Isn’t Mark Hamill’s First Run-In With The Royal Family!

Shortly before the Platinum Jubilee celebrations began, Mark Hamill replied to a tweet that had been posted in early May. The tweet showed the cast of “The Empire Strikes Back” meeting with Prince Margaret. A young Mark Hamill can be seen with his eyes cast down to the floor as he stands beside Billy Dee Williams, who plays Lando Calrissian.
“Billy Dee Williams made Mark Hamill think he would go to jail if he looked Princess Margaret in the eyes,” the post read. “Before the cast met the Princess at the London premiere of The Empire Strikes Back, Williams told Hamill that holding direct eye contact with British royalty was punishable with a prison sentence.” The post was credited to Cracked.com.
On May 7, Pete Hepple retweeted the post, adding, @MarkHamill I don’t believe much I read on the internet, but I *really* want this to be true. He looks absolutely delighted with himself! Is it true?”
On May 30, Mark replied, “Even though I didn’t believe him, better safe than sorry. #TrueStory.”
