For all of us at EastEnders it was an extremely special day that will go down in EastEnders’ history.
Kellie Bright, who plays Linda, was also excited about the presence of the royal family. She said:
I just thought wow, they’ve never done anything like this before. They didn’t really know what to expect, I mean it must have been nerve wracking for them and completely out of their norm. So I just hope they enjoyed it as much as we did!
