Who knew they were such huge soap gans, right? There are new reports that say Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles will be guest starring in a special Eastenders episode to help mark Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee. The royal couple were spotted filming scenes back in March when they visited the new Elstree set and met the cast and crew of the long-running British soap. Here’s what you need to know.
During the episode, Charles and Camilla will surprise the residents of Albert Square at a street party held to celebrate the monarch’s 70 years on the throne. 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 the partygoers will be left in shock when they are graced by the royals in an episode airing on June 2.

What’s more, Mick and Linda Carter, played by Kellie Bright, will greet Charles and Camilla at the party and introduce them to the residents of Walford. Speaking about her meeting with the royal couple, Bright said: “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.”
Executive producer Chris Clenshaw added: “We are truly honored 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.”
He added, “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.”
