EASTENDERS is getting ready to celebrate the Queen's Platinum Jubilee this week with a new take on the iconic theme tune.
The episode will feature an appearance from Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall in Walford as they join in the celebrations and make a toast to Her Majesty The Queen’s 70-year reign.
What is the EastEnders Jubilee theme tune?
The Eastenders Jubilee theme tune is to celebrate the Queen’s 70 years on the throne.
EastEnders executive producer Chris Clenshaw said: "To have Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall not only visit us all in Walford, but to also appear in an episode, we felt it was only right that we marked this extremely momentous episode with a fitting tribute.
"What better way than to wish Their Royal Highnesses on their way from Albert Square than with a special Jubilee version of our iconic theme tune, remastered by the very talented Simon May."
The Duke and Duchess secretly filmed their scene at the end of March on an official visit to the BBC One soap's new set.

Who created the EastEnders Jubilee theme tune?
Featuring at the end of the episode, the EastEnders Jubilee theme tune has been composed by Simon May.
There have only ever been two other variations of the BBC One soaps theme tune.
Viewers may be familiar with Julia’s Theme as it is normally used when an important character leaves Walford and Peggy’s theme was used when Peggy Mitchell, played by the late actress Barbara Windsor passed away in a painful plot.
Simon May is also the original theme tune composer.
The original song, Anyone Can Fall in Love, was released in 1986 and sung by EastEnders actress Anita Dobson, who played the character of Angie Watts.
