Conversation Street

An unofficial podcast for the long-running British soap, Coronation Street.

Corrie’s Royal Connections

July 8th, 2021

For this week's bonus podcast, we thought we'd jump on the royal bandwagon following today's visit to the cobbles by the Queen.

After chatting about what went on during her tour of the Street, we take a look back at previous times that Corrie has been graced by royalty, including when the Queen opened the set on Quay Street in 1982 and when Prince Charles showed up to shake Audrey's hand in the 40th anniversary episode. As well as this, we chat about the time the show allegedly got a royal rap on the knuckles by mentioning Prince Philip's name on air, explain why Vera Duckworth was so convinced she had blue blood, and remember when Alf Roberts got his OBE at the palace - and why Audrey had to get down there to see it by hitch-hiking!
