Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall are to swap Clarence House for the Queen Victoria as they make their soap opera debut.

The couple who are first in line to the throne are no strangers to their lives being played out in front of millions but neither have tried their hand at television work, until now.

While Prince Charles, 72, has some acting skills from his university days, this will be the first time the heir to the throne has professionally tested his skills.

The couple visited the cast of EastEnders earlier this year and met with several members of the cast but now the reason for their visit has been revealed.

Charles and Camilla, 74, will star as themselves in a special episode of the BBC One soap celebrating all things regal.

The couple will join the residents of Albert Square who are throwing a street party to celebrate the Queen's Platinum Jubilee celebrations – marking 70 years of the Queen on the throne.

Fans of the soap have already seen local pub owner Mick Carter plan a Jubilee party for the residents on the Square and in upcoming scenes, he'll tease the arrival of some very important guests.

During the episode which is set to air on Thursday, June 2, those celebrating the Queen will be left speechless when Mick and his royal loving wife, Linda, introduce the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall.

Linda, played by actress Kellie Bright hosts the royal couple at her lavish celebrations as she struggles to contain her excitement.

Speaking about their appearance, Kellie 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 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 at EastEnders it was an extremely special day that will go down in EastEnders' history."

The episode is set to air on June 2, at 7.30pm on BBC One.
