Katie Couric is one of the best journalists and TV personalities in the United States. Her career is highly successful and awarded. Currently, she serves as special correspondent for ABC News and contributes to ABC World News, 20/20, Nightline, This Week, Good Morning America, and other primetime news specials. In September 2012, she will host her own daytime talk show, Katie, also produced by ABC. She also has a web show for ABC News since May 2012, called Katie’s Take, which airs every week on Yahoo. She is so successful that even Princes William and Harry have agreed to give her an interview. The British Royal Family is known for shying away from the press and keeping the press contacts limited.

Therefore, you can tell how amazingly successful Couric is. Princes William and Harry sat down with her in a rare interview and mainly talked about Queen Elizabeth, since her Diamond Jubilee is approaching (meaning 60 years of ruling the country). By landing this interview, Couric managed to prove her media clout and get a rare insight on the Royal Family. The only thing bigger than an interview with the princes would be an interview with the Queen herself. The special, called “The Real Queen By Her Own Royal Family”, will air on May 29, 2012, on ABC. She interviewed the princes separately. She talked to Prince William at Clarence House, while Prince Harry was interviewed in an undisclosed exotic location. After meeting with Prince William, she got an exclusive tour of Buckingham Palace. A preview of the interview is available on the Internet, this teaser telling us that the special will be truly amazing.

When asked about his grandmother, Prince William made a remark that was considered a past indiscretion. He said: “As I learned from growing up, you don’t mess with your grandmother”. Clearly, the remark was a joke, and a pretty funny one, I might add. Prince Harry, jovial as we all know him, also joked with Couric. When asked if the Queen befriended him on the social networking site Facebook, Prince Harry replied: “No she hasn’t. Why? Has she friended you?” “Hopefully after this interview she will”, Couric responded. They were referring to the Facebook profile dedicated to the British Monarchy. The two were also seen goofing around by striking a funny pose. Katie Couric surely is a lucky woman and I bet that every journalist wants to have been in her position.
