Winner of this year’s Strictly Come Dancing Rose Ayling-Ellis was left gushing as the Duchess of Cornwall revealed the Queen’s TV habits earlier this week. On Thursday (March 31), the Prince of Wales and Camilla visited the set of iconic BBC soap, EastEnders.

The Folkestone and Hythe-born actress was joined alongside her on-screen co-stars, including Danny Dyer and Steve McFadden. Rose, 27, chatted with Camilla on the iconic set as it was revealed that the Queen, 95, is a big fan of Strictly, OK! reports.

Meeting Rose for the first time, the Duchess referred to her as, “Ah Rose, the Strictly star.” The 74-year-old continued to address other stars and even revealed that she was a true fan herself as she said: “We were all voting for Rose.”

Rose added: “It allowed me to really focus on the dancing which was great.” Rose then asked Camilla: “Does the Queen watch Strictly Come Dancing?”
