Another source told the publication: “The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall are, like millions of others, huge fans of Strictly Come Dancing – and so is the Queen.

“So there is a real desire and energy to make this happen. Holding the show at Buckingham Palace’s ballroom would be a wonderful treat as we celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee this year. A lot of work needs to be done to get it over the line.”

She expressed her excitement for the final, which was eventually won by Oti Mabuse and Bill Bailey.

In the video message, the duchess said: “I’m very excited, I know who I’ll be voting for.

“I’d like, on behalf of everybody who watches Strictly, to say an enormous thank you to everybody who’s been involved in this production in this particularly difficult year.
