Transcript for Instant Index: Gladys the Orphaned Gorilla Takes a Big Step
Our instant index tonight starts with a big debut for a tiny gorilla who won our hearts and yours. Gladys, abandoned by her mom, raised by an unlikely surrogate family, humans dressed in gorilla costumes. Today she took her first trip outside the gorilla habitat. Outdoors. The door goes up, she can hardly wait, but some jitters, as she clings to her surrogate dad, wide-eyed. She assesses a tree trunk, not ready to climb that yet. Eventually brave enough to take a piggy back ride with surrogate dad. And a royal changing of the guards in the netherlands. Queen bee tris stepping down. Fighting back tears, she introduced him as the new king, the first dutch king in 123 years, his 9-year-old daughter amalia, next in line to the throne. Beatrice who was seen riding her bicycle around wn, will be known as princess beatrice. And we saw prince charles in that crowd today and had to wonder what he was thinking. And from royalty to rock royalty, the beatles. Well, for 50 years, their album, the longest running debut album at the top of the charts. 62 consecutive weeks in the top ten. But tonight the record has been smashed by this -- ♪ next to me ♪ her album, 63 weeks on in the top ten in the uk. The former medical student turned musician said the beatles was the best band of all times.
