Big Interview with Prince William on Monday – CNN's Max Foster Reflects

By CNN Anchor and Royal Correspondent Max Foster

Big royal interviews don’t happen overnight and if you’re lucky, they come through and at just the right time. For a long while, I have wanted to speak to Prince William about the cause closest to his heart, African conservation, and I’ve been in contact with his office for more than two years about making it happen. That interview finally came through this month and will be aired, in full on CNN September 15th as part of a special.


Of course I had to ask him about becoming a dad for the first time as well and we will be showing a section of the interview on "New Day" on Monday. I think you will be struck by how natural he is, passionate, frank and happy. So many parents will relate to what he’s saying. William isn't just a big star, he is set to become head of state in 16 countries and here he is talking about his own successor for the very first time. It’s an historic moment and I am thrilled he agreed to speak to me… you’ll see it first on "New Day." I’ll be on set with Kate, Chris and Michaela….


A portion of the interview will air on CNN’s New Day on Monday, August 19th at 8:00am ETIn it, the Prince reflects on becoming a new parent and how it has forever changed him

    That was an interview of a lifetime. I'm sure that William in much like his Mother was. I'm very happy for him & Kate on the birth of their son. Great to see he's getting the respect he deserves. Glad you got to do the interview. Congrats.

    Awww man, what a letdown.... When I saw the headline "Prince tells CNN about being a dad" I thought they were talking about THE Prince, as in Prince.....not A prince. LOL

  7. Wrong Prince

    When I clicked on the link on the CNN homepage, I seriously thought that this was about Prince the singer, not this already-tired royal family story. I thought, Prince is a dad? How wonderful! Then when I got to this page, I was dejected to see William.

    Funny, when I read the link I thought this article was about something completely different. Prince Tells CNN about being a dad. Then I was wondering if he had knocked up Sheila E. or something. There are no other Prince's in the United States.

    Good gracious, I clicked wondering why I hadn't heard that Prince (Purple Rain Prince) had become a father, and excited to hear what he had to say about it!

    The USA is a Republic there are no princes here.For sure the British prince sees the baby one minute each day.

    We just took our boys to London, and stayed on George St. It's nice to see such a positive role model in this young man 🙂
