EastEnders fans go wild over beautiful new theme tune to celebrate Queens Platinum Jubilee

Prince Charles and Camilla made their debut on hit BBC One soap EastEnders on Thursday 2 June.

The Prince of Wales, 73, and Duchess of Cornwall, 74, starred as themselves and joined Albert Square's residents with a street party to celebrate the Queen 's Platinum Jubilee.

To mark the special episode, the hit BBC One soap changed its iconic theme tune to celebrate Prince Charles and Camilla's debut, which was aired at the end of the episode.

The Jubilee-themed tune was composed by original theme tune composer Simon May and played as the residents celebrated the Royal visit and made a toast to Her Majesty The Queen’s seventy year reign.

Soap watchers will recall that other versions of the EastEnders theme tune include the likes of Julia’s Theme and Peggy’s theme, which are used for special episodes.

Viewers went wild over the "beautiful" theme song as one person tweeted: "This music at the end is quite beautiful. #Eastenders."

A different account put: "What a fabulous episode of @bbceastenders Well done to all. Loved Simon May’s music too! #EastEnders #PlatinumJubilee."

Another follower wrote: "@bbceastenders pulled it out of the bag tonight. What a fabulous episode. Far exceeded expectations. #Jubilee #EastEnders."

While a different viewer added: "Loved the theme song tonight. Lovely. #EastEnders."

Chris Clenshaw, Executive Producer, said of the new theme tune: "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.
