Prince William and wife Catherine are back in England and Hollywood is just a boring place full of common celebrities again.

Obviously, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge made quite the impression, and we hear it wasn't just the hoi polloi who couldn't get enough of the effortlessly elegant duo.

"Our next choice is Prince Harry, and then we'll go to one of [Sarah Ferguson]'s kids," he said. "We'll work our way down."

Or maybe they can pen cameos for William and Kate and work diligently to get the couple onboard. We'd watch that, wouldn't you?
