Here's how to watch the EastEnders jubilee special online from anywhere. 

EastEnders is set to see The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall star in a very special episode of the soap to celebrate Her Majesty The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee this week. 

The royal couple will be part of an unforgettable episode where they will be seen visiting Albert Square while the residents are having a party to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee. 

Charles and Camilla visited the EastEnders set at the end of March and news reports at the time showed them meeting the cast and crew — with Prince Charles memorably offering his coat to a chilly Letitia Dean (Sharon Watts).

But while Charles and Camilla were on set they also secretly filmed a very special episode of the soap which airs on Thursday, June 2 and kicks off the Jubilee bank holiday weekend in style.
