The Prince of Wales, 73, and the Duchess of Cornwall, 74, are planning to host a live episode of Strictly at Buckingham Palace following secret talks with BBC executives – and the pair may even dance for the fans.
The royal show is scheduled for the quarter or semi-finals, with only a handful of aides believed to be involved in the top-secret project.
A second source revealed there was a ‘genuine desire’ to make the live special happen and to celebrate the end of the Queen’s historic Platinum Jubilee year – but there is ‘a lot of work necessary to make it pass”.
The insider added: “The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall are, like millions of others, huge fans of Strictly Come Dancing – as is the Queen.
“So there is a real desire and a real energy for this to happen. Hosting the show in the ballroom at Buckingham Palace would be a treat as we celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee this year. A lot of work needs to be done to get it through.
