EastEnders have filmed a special scene marking the birth of Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge’s baby boy.

A scene featuring Dot and Abi discussing the happy news has been specially shot and will be dropped into the episode that will transmit on Tuesday night.

 

An EastEnders spokesperson says “This is such a momentous occasion for the Royal family, the country and of course the residents of Walford that we felt it should be marked in EastEnders history.”

Over the years, EastEnders has filmed many scenes that have been inserted into episodes that have marked historical or topical moments, including the wedding of Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge, notable sporting achievements from World Cup matches and the Olympics and most recently Andy Murray’s win at Wimbledon.
