Harry to introduce special royal episode of Thomas The Tank Engine featuring the Queen and Prince Charles

Thomas The Tank Engine is getting the royal treatment for his 75 th birthday, with the Duke of Sussex supplying a special intro to a brand-new episode featuring his granny the Queen and daddy Prince Charles as a young kid.

The Royal Engine animated TELEVISION special will see Thomas travel to London for the first time to take Sir Topham Hatt – much better called the Fat Controller – to get an honour for recognized service to the train at Buckingham Palace.

Hollywood star Rosamund Pike likewise guest stars as a brand-new engine character, the Duchess of Loughborough, for the special 22- minute episode set to air in May.

Queen Elizabeth and the Prince of Wales function as characters in the show – with the young Prince Charles asking for Thomas’s services personally.

Harry, who taped his on-camera intro in January, states he matured with the well-known anthropomorphised blue steam engine, who first appeared in books in 1945.

“Thomas the Tank Engine has been a comforting, familiar face to so many families over the last 75 years – entertaining, educating and inspiring children on important issues through exciting stories and characters,” the Duke Of Sussex stated.

” I definitely have fond memories of maturing with Thomas & & Pals and being carried to brand-new locations through his experiences.

Pike, best understood for movies consisting of Gone Woman, Pride & & Bias and A Private War, states it is “an absolute honour” to have the chance to appear in the show.

“I take it as a big responsibility to play Duchess, who is a lovely, warm, bubbly sort of effervescent engine that I am incredibly drawn to because she is very anxious to get things right,” the star stated.

Thomas the Tank Engine was produced 75 years earlier by British clergyman, the Reverend W Awdry, as a storybook for his young kid.

That story grew to end up being the substantial children’s franchise we understand and like today, seen and check out by households in more than 230 countries and areas around the world.

The special episode will be evaluated in the United States on Netflix on Friday 1 May and in the UK on Channel 5 Milkshake! at 9.05 am Saturday 2 May.
