The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall will guest star on a special episode of EastEnders in honor of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
In the special program, Charles and Camilla will surprise residents of Albert Square at a street party to celebrate the monarch’s 70 years on the throne.
The royal couple filmed the scenes in March when they toured 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 a Jubilee party for the Square.
He will later tease that some very special guests will be in attendance, but revelers will be in shock when they are honored by the Royal Family in an episode airing June 2.
Mick and Linda Carter, played by Kellie Bright, will welcome Charles and Camilla to the party and introduce them to the people of Walford.
Speaking about his brush with royalty, Bright said: “I thought about what an amazing sport they are just willing to do.
“I just thought, ‘Wow, they’ve 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. So I hope they enjoyed it as much as we did.
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 most special episodes.
“Linda Carter is understandably in her element and giddy with excitement when Their Royal Highnesses arrive at Walford, but it wasn’t just her, because for all of us at EastEnders it was a hugely special day that will go down in history. ‘East Enders.
In 2001, the Queen visited soap queen Dame Barbara Windsor, who played Peggy Mitchell, on the set of EastEnders.
The royal visitor walked behind the Queen Vic, wandered around Albert Square and through the EastEnders Street Market, meeting the stars of the show.
