ROYALS Prince William, the Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry had a spellbinding day in Hertfordshire.

And they were greeted by County Council leader and Goffs Oak councillor Robert Gordon, who formed part of the welcoming committee today (Friday).

They were there to open the £100m Warner Brothers studio attraction.

Cllr Gordon was accompanied by Lord Lieutenant of Hertfordshire, Countess Verulam, Hertfordshire Constabulary Chief Constable Andy Bliss and PCC David Lloyd, among other dignitaries.

Also there was Harry Potter author JK Rowling.

Royal couple Prince William and wife Princess Catherine, alongside Prince Harry, went to the mythical realm of Hogwarts, and battled with magic wands on the visit to the site in Leavesden.

HRH Prince William, the Duke of Cambridge, was also soon atop the ‘Bat Bike’ from movies The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises and inspecting ‘The Tumbler’, or Batmobile from Christopher Nolan’s hit trilogy.

His brother Prince Harry also got to grips with the Caped Crusader’s famous ‘Batsuit’.

Of the event, Police and Crime Commissioner Mr Lloyd, tweeted: “Pleased to be at opening of Warner Brothers studios today – a fantastic Hertfordshire business.”
