Coronation Street couple Ken and Deirdre will marry on the same day as Prince Charles and his fiancee Camilla Parker Bowles.
It will be the second time Ken and Deirdre have married
Millions of TV viewers watched as Ken popped the question on Wednesday - just one day before the royal announcement.
Now both happy couples will tie the knot on 8 April.
A spokesman for Coronation Street said soap bosses had planned Ken and Deirdre's big day a few months ago, but kept the date a secret.
The wedding date is not the first coincidence between the Prince of Wales and the Coronation Street couple.
Ken and Deirdre - played by actors William Roache and Anne Kirkbride - first married in 1981, just two days before Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer.
Their latest wedding will be featured in a one-hour special of the ITV1 soap.
