Prince Charles and Camilla to Star in Special Platinum Jubilee Episode of EastEnders
The royals are really spicing it up and making very unique moves in order to ensure that the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee is one to remember.
Reports are just emerging that the real Prince Charles and the real Duchess Camilla filmed a scene in Albert Square and outside Queen’s Victoria’s pub. Can this four-day bank holiday weekend get any fancier?
Prince Charles and Camilla Film Scenes in His Great Ancestor’s Boozer
It’s not everyday we get to see Prince Charles and Camilla playing a fictional role onscreen –the real Charles and Camilla, I mean.
In one of these special scenes, the royal couple is introduced by Danny Dyer’s character Mick Carter as surprise guests to Albert Square’s jubilee street party.
In the scene, Mick says to the 73-year-old Prince: “Welcome to your great-great-great-grandmother’s boozer.”
We’re yet to learn what Charles says in reply. The Jubilee episode will air on Thursday, June 2, as the celebrations officially kick off.
Actress Kellie Bright, 45, who plays Mick’s wife Linda, said: “I did think what amazing sports that they’re just willing to do it.
“It must have been nerve-racking for them and completely out of their norm. So I just hope they enjoyed it as much as we did.”
Executive Producer Shares Heartfelt Gratitude to the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall For Their Contribution
According to BBC1 soap’s executive producer Chris Clenshaw, the special Jubilee episode will “go down in EastEnders’ history” because of Charles and Camilla acting in it.
Chris Clenshaw said: “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 it was an extremely special day that will go down in EastEnders’ history.”
According to sources, both Prince Charles and Camilla have lines on the show, though it’s not yet been revealed what they say.
