Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla are set to make an appearance on an episode of EastEnders to mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations.
As part of her 70th year on the throne, the Queen has given everyone in the UK an extra bank holiday. With the festivities in full swing, the Royal Family has another surprise in store for fans, as Charles and Camilla have shared some exciting news.
The couple will appear in Eastenders after visiting the set of the long-running BBC drama in March and meeting the cast and staff.
Viewers who are up to date on the soap will have seen Mick Carter, played by Danny Dyer, plan a special Jubilee celebration for the square, as he teases some very special visitors.
Revelers will be in for a big surprise when Mick and Linda Carter welcome Their Royal Highnesses and introduce them to the people of Walford.
Given their status and willingness to be filmed for the series, Kellie Bright noted, “I thought, “What an amazing sport they’re just willing to do. I just thought, ‘Wow, they don’t ‘have never done anything like this before’.
“They didn’t really know what to expect, I mean it must have been nerve-wracking for them and completely out of their norm.”
The royal couple are not the first to visit the famous plateau. The Queen visited the late Dame Barbara Windsor, who played Peggy Mitchell in the cast of EastEnders in 2001.
Her Majesty walked past the Queen Vic, Albert Square and EastEnders Street Market, where she met members of the cast.
The special Jubilee edition with Charles and Camilla will be broadcast on Thursday, June 2 at 7:30 p.m.
Executive producer Chris Clenshaw added: “We are truly honored to have the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall appear in what should be one of EastEnders‘ the most special episodes.
“Linda Carter is naturally in her element and giddy with excitement when Their Royal Highnesses arrive at Walford, but it wasn’t just her, as it was for all of us at EastEnders it was an extremely special day that will remain in EastEnders‘ the story.”
