Transcript for Prince Phillp’s love letter to the Queen 73 years ago
with Lara. Good morning, Lara. Good morning, Michael. In light of the news of prince Philip's passing we wanted to highlight a very special letter that he sent her majesty the queen back in 1946. It was a year before their wedding and the letter was published in a book in 2011 that reads to falling in love unreservedly makes one trouble's small and petty and told the queen mother in another letter that his future bride was, quote, the only thing in the world that is absolutely real to me. It was also revealed in that book that prince Philip's nickname for his wife behind closed doors is lillibet for all 73 years of their marriage. Thinking about the family this morning. We begin also with the glad awards honoring outstanding media representation of the lgbtq plus community held virtually last night hosted by there she is our friend niecy Nash. They featured guest appearances from a host of stars like Dan levy, Laverne cox, Sam Smith, jojo siwa, sterling K. Brown and many more. We also saw a very special cast reunion of "Glee" coming back together introduced by demi Lovato to honor late cast member naya Rivera. Take a look. I will always cherishhe chance I got to play naya's girlfriend on "Glee." What's up, party people? Hi, everybody. Hi. Hi. Oh, my god. Hi. There was always just so much more than met the eye with naya. With the exception of our show there were almost no lgbt teens on TV at the time. Especially young Latina lgbtq women. She was so honored to represent them as an ally. And I'm happy to share our "Gma" family landed in the winner's circle. Producers Tony Morrison winning for online journalism. Congratulations and robin Roberts and her team honored for outstanding TV journalism. Congratulations to all the winners. Finally baseball back, great news for fans everywhere and especially for this little boy. We want you to meet Lathan from lamb mind, Louisiana, who loves going to ball games and imitating his hero. You can probably guess who that is. Holding a clicker in his hand keeping tracks of balls, strikes and outs, the aspiring umpire does this every weekend at any park that he and his family visit and, yep, he steals the show, wherever he goes. That's what we call a real home run for the weekend, guys. We thought we'd send it back to you. I could see his future. Thank you so much for that,
