Prince Charles cracks jokes about famously awkward interview with Molly Meldrum

Prince Charles pokes fun at TV presenter Molly Meldrum, in a clip from a soon-to-be-broadcast Australian TV show.

Prince Charles shows good humor as he recalls his awkward 1977 interview with Meldrum, saying, “there is an old show business saying which warns never to work with animals or children but nobody prepared me for Molly Meldrum”.

A 40th anniversary tribute to music show Countdown, a programme aired by the Australian Broadcasting Corporation from 1974 to 1987, prompted Charles to revisit the incident, “was it really 40 years ago? It seems like yesterday.

I wish it were tomorrow, I’d cancel it.”
