The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall will guest star in a special EastEnders episode in honor of the Queen’s platinum jubilee.
In the special program, Charles and Camilla will surprise the residents of Albert Square at a street party held to mark the 70th jubilee of the monarch.
The royal couple filmed the scenes in March as they visited the new Elstree set and met the cast and crew of the long-running BBC soap opera.
Viewers have already seen Mick Carter, played by Danny Dyer, decide to throw an anniversary party for the Square.
He will later tease that some very special guests will be in attendance, but partygoers will be left in shock when they are honored by the royals in an episode that will air on June 2.
Mick and Linda Carter, played by Kellie Bright, will welcome Charles and Camilla to the party and introduce them to the residents of Walford.
Speaking of her contact with royalty, Bright said: “I thought what amazing sports they’re just willing to do it.
“I just thought, ‘Wow, they’ve never done anything like this.’ They didn’t really know what to expect, I mean it must have been nerve wracking for them and totally out of their norm.
“So I just hope they enjoyed it as much as we did.”
Executive Producer Chris Clenshaw added: “We are truly honored to have both the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall appear in one of EastEnders’ most extraordinary episodes.
“Linda Carter is obviously in her element and giddy with excitement as HRH arrives in Walford, but it wasn’t just her as for all of us at EastEnders it was a very special day that will go down in EastEnders history. ”
