EastEnders likens the Queen’s death to Britain ‘losing its temper’ in touching tribute

Monday’s episode of EastEnders opened with a moving tribute to the Queen, in which her death was likened to the nation’s “loss of home”.

A brief scene before the prologue, characters Linda Carter, Denise Fox and Kathy Beale gather around a picture of the king in the famous Old Vic pub, to discuss her life of “selfless” service.

The trio discussed major milestones including the Queen’s coronation in 1953 and her silver and platinum wreaths, the following milestones being described as “a luxurious way of saying goodbye”.

When Linda, played by Kellie Bright, adjusts a picture of the Queen, Denise (Diane Parish) says: “God bless her, she’s been there all our lives. It’s like she’s everything we’ve ever known.”

Kathy, played by Gillian Taylforth, replies: “I feel very private, though, don’t I? Just cruel. “

“It was like we lost our spokes,” says Diane.

“Well, we have. I mean lost country…we all lost nan. She has dedicated her entire life to serving us,” Linda replied.

“Altruistic,” Kathy replied.

Denise continued: “We will never see anyone like her again.”

“I wish I could remember the coronation day but, I already have other people’s memories.”

Diane added: “Remember Silver Jubilee? I think I was eight or nine years old.

“I just remember that I was so happy. I just remember everyone feeling so happy.”

Kathy replied, “That’s what she did, isn’t she, she makes you feel so happy and safe.”

A special episode marking the Platinum Jubilee earlier this year featured an appearance by the King and Queen.

Charles and Camilla made a surprise visit to Walford, where they were greeted by soap opera royalty Danny Dyer, and introduced to the residents.

Recalling the events of Monday’s episode, Linda said of the Queen: “Thank goodness she made it to this year’s Platinum Jubilee.

“I mean a classy way of saying goodbye.”

Kathy added: “And how was our day here? We’ve got Camilla and Prince Charles here with us

“King Charles III,” Denise corrected her.

Together, the trio declared “Long live the King,” before Linda continued: “We had Kat and Phil’s wedding here today and the show must go on.

“But first I’m going to Buckingham Palace to pay my respects.”

“I thought I would go with you,” Denise added.

The scene ends with Linda placing a photograph of the Queen in front of a bust of Queen Victoria, saying, “Thank you, from all of us.”

“Take care of her, won’t you?” she added, addressing the bust.

The camera zooms in and stays on the photo before the famous opening credits appear.

EastEnders has announced that episodes of the series will be available at 7:30pm on BBC iPlayer, as schedule changes continue to be made around coverage of the Queen’s death.
