  Queen to meet EastEnders
Updated 15 November 2001, 19.57
EastEnders cast at the National TV awards
The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh are to meet the cast of EastEnders and the Blue Peter presenters.

It's all part of a broadcasting-themed day on 28 November.

They'll visit the set of Albert Square, as well as popping into the Queen Vic, named after her great-great-grandmother, Queen Victoria.

Apparently the Queen has watched the soap but a palace spokesman didn't know if it was one of her favourites.

While the Duke is visiting the film sets, the Queen will walk through the EastEnders street market and watch a rehearsal in the Queen Vic.

The royals will also call at BBC Television Centre in London, where they'll watch a rehearsal of Blue Peter and meet past and present presenters of the long-running programme.
