Duchess Camilla appearing in tonight’s Strictly Come Dancing final, it has been confirmed.
Camilla will appear via video in pre-recorded clips, in which she will praise the BBC’s show for helping to “build the country” in the wake of coronavirus pandemic.
She also states that she has voted every week for her favorite couple – although she does not say who they are on camera “because she is far too polite”.
A royal source told The sun: “Camilla ‘s team cried long before the filming started and said she was a huge fan – and wanted to be shown.
“They said she would be happy to do anything, so when they asked her to make a film for a cameo for the final, she jumped at the chance.
“Camilla said her dream would always be to appear on the series but a royal protocol might not allow it.
“Instead she got a great movie in one way, and it was great.”
Camilla – who visited the Strictly set in 2011 – is following in the footsteps of Prince Harry, who appeared surprisingly last month to share words of encouragement with his close friend JJ Chalmers.
Prince Harry was heard saying to JJ and his professional companion Amy Dowden: “Nice tan JJ. Hi Amy it’s great to meet you. When I first met JJ it was a shell of itself, but then to see you shining through Invictus, that was the start of an amazing journey. “
Harry continued: “I’m so proud. You’re not a dancer, proving you can do anything you set your mind to, which is amazing.”
