Charles and Camilla to star in jubilee EastEnders episode

Charles and Camilla will join the residents of Albert Square for a street party held in honour of the monarch's 70 years on the throne.

They filmed the scenes in March when they visited the soap's Elstree set and met members of the cast.

The episode is due to air on BBC One on 2 June.

Viewers of the soap will have already seen Mick Carter, played by Danny Dyer, decide to throw a jubilee party for residents of the square - he will later tease that some very special guests will be in attendance.

Queen wants Camilla to be known as Queen Consort

In a message marking the 70th anniversary of her reign, the Queen said it was her "sincere wish" that Camilla would have that title.

There had been suggestions Camilla would be known as Princess Consort.

But the Queen's announcement paves the way for her to be known as Queen Camilla in the future.

A Clarence House spokesman said the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall were "touched and honoured".

The Queen's message, marking her accession to the throne in 1952, directly addresses the unresolved question of the Duchess of Cornwall's future title.

Prince Charles 'praying' that more entertainment venues can reopen

Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall visited Soho Theatre to show their support for London's arts scene.

Some venues in the capital are now reopening after the latest lockdown.

The royal couple saw Natasha Marshall perform part of her play Half Breed, still wearing her Morrisons uniform.

"I've got to go back later, so it was easier to keep it on, I'll be in such a rush," Marshall told the prince and the duchess.

"It's such a pleasure to meet you. The theatre has supported me so much I jumped at the chance to perform today."
