Prince Charles and Camilla visit the set of EastEnders

EastEnders’ own ‘Princess’ Sharon Watts was kept warm by a real-life royal yesterday – when Prince Charles lent her his coat during a visit to the set.

The Prince of Wales and Lady Camilla watched the cast play scenes from the soap opera, in which they celebrated the Queen’s platinum anniversary with a street party.

Letitia Dean, who plays Sharon, said she was emotional when Charles, 73, put his coat on her shoulders after noticing she was cold in a group photo outside The Queen Vic. The act of chivalry was met with a round of applause after she told him: “You’ve got your coat on, very wise.”

Letitia, who appeared in the first episode of the series in 1985, told Charles, “Thanks for lending me your coat, it smells really nice.”

The actress, 54, added: “We are all incredibly proud of the show but having a visit from the royal family makes it all the more special.

“For me it became even more special when the Prince of Wales gave me his coat to keep me warm. What a gentleman, a couple, what – as we say at EastEnders – a family in its own right. ” Camilla, 74, told deaf actress Rose Ayling-Ellis, who plays Frankie Lewis, that she voted for her in the serious dance last year.

Then Rose said: “It was amazing. I mean, it’s the Royals vote for me, sometimes you forget how many people watch the show. I’m thinking out loud.”

The Duchess of Cornwall, who was wearing Anna Valentine’s silk dress and cream coat, called Rose a “star”, adding: “I don’t know how you did all that dance. “

The actress, 27, asked if the Queen watched Serious, and Camilla replied: “I think she does. She was probably stalking you.” Danny Dyer, who plays Mick Carter, told Camilla he was leaving the show after nine years, adding: “I used to make movies before moving to soap country, but I’m leaving this year. Maybe I’ll come back.”

When Camilla asked about her exit plot, Danny said, “Stay tuned, it’s going to be a big one.”

The 44-year-old actor later admitted he didn’t mention his Who Do You Think You Are episode in which he discovered he was a descendant of William the Conqueror.

He said: “It just doesn’t go down well, does it? I’ve met Charles before and I stopped by, he just looked at me strangely but I assume we’re related. I’m 147,000 (in line) to the throne, not that I’ve Googled it. “

Danny described meeting the royal couple as “very random”. He added: “They’re so charming, really chatty, they have crazy faces when you’re up close.”

Brian Conley, who plays Brian Cant, said he and Camilla enjoyed giggling at the nylon Union Jack suit he was wearing for the scenes: “She said she had a hand warmer inside. gloves and didn’t want to shake my hand too hard. in case i burn with all the static, it is very funny. ” Gillian Taylforth, who plays Kathy Beale, said Camilla told her she watched her on the soap in the 80s.

Gillian, 66, said: “She said: ‘I miss Angie and Dirty Den, I have a couple of episodes to catch up on.'”

The royal couple also met stars including Jamie Borthwick (Jay Brown), Natalie Cassidy (Sonia Fowler) and Tameka Empson (Kim Fox).

Then, Letitia joined Steve McFadden, who plays tough man Phil Mitchell, to give Charles an Albert Square sign signed by the cast. Steve, 63, told Charles: “We hope it will hang on the mantelpiece.”

Street party scenes will be shown during the actual platinum saint celebration in early June.

The royals were waved from the BBC studio in Elstree, Herts, to passionate cheers from the cast.

Soap boss Chris Clenshaw said: “This is a moment that will go down in history for EastEnders.”
