Prince Charles and Camilla to star in EastEnders to mark Queens Platinum Jubilee

EastEnders is set for exciting scenes as Prince Charles and Camilla will guest star in a celebratory episode to mark the Queen's Platinum Jubilee.

The Prince of Wales, 73, and Duchess of Cornwall, 74, will star as themselves and join Albert Square's residents with a street party to celebrate the Queen's Platinum Jubilee.

The specially shot scenes were filmed back on 31 March when Prince Charles and Camilla visited the set of EastEnders to meet the cast and crew of the long running drama.

Soap watchers will recall that Mick Carter, played by Danny Dyer, recently decided to throw a Jubilee party for the Square and in upcoming scenes, he will tease some very special guests.

In the episode, due to air on Thursday 2 June, the partygoers will get the surprise of their lives as Mick and Linda Carter, played by Kellie Bright, greet The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall and introduce them to the residents of Albert Square.

Kellie, whose character Linda hosts His Royal Highness at the party, said of the scenes: "I did think what amazing sports that they are just willing to do it. 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 just hope they enjoyed it as much as we did!"

While Chris Clenshaw, Executive Producer, added: 'We are truly honoured to have both The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall appear in what is set to be one of EastEnders’ most special episodes.

"Linda Carter is naturally in her element and giddy with excitement as their Royal Highnesses arrive in Walford but it wasn’t just her as for all of us at EastEnders it was an extremely special day that will go down in EastEnders’ history."
