Prince William and Kate Middleton’s First Post-Wedding Interview: ‘Piers Morgan Tonight?’

By Alex Weprin 

Soon-to-be CNN 9 PM host Piers Morgan spoke to TV Guide about how he has tried to gain acceptance in America, both on ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ and ‘America’s Got Talent.’

But the magazine also asks about the upcoming Royal Wedding:

TV Guide Magazine: You have a good relationship with the royal family. What are the chances you’ll have the first U.S. post-engagement TV interview with Kate Middleton?

Morgan: I am working hard on getting that interview. I’ve known William a long time and I knew his mother, Diana, very well. I had a memorable lunch with William and his mother when he was 13. I spoke with her regularly on the phone. I’m a big monarchist. I think a royal wedding is very exciting.

Suffice it to say, the first post-wedding interview will be a major “get” for whichever networks secures it. The Royal Family is not in need of any money, so it is unlikely photo¬† licensing fees will make any difference here.
