Transcript for Prince Charles sets royal record
when Lara is here, it's poppin. Prince Charles makes history passing a royal milestone to become the longest serving prince of Wales ever holding the post for just over 59 years, the record previously held by Edward VII son of queen Victoria who served 59 years, 45 days before becoming king in 1901. Both similar situations. The eldest sons of queens who weren't and aren't going anywhere. Victoria was the longest reigning queen with 63 year, 7 month, 2 day, that, of course, until queen Elizabeth set that record two years ago and keeps on going. Charles was dubbed prince of Wales by his mother in 1969 when he was 20 years old. Hope he likes the title. I know, really. Gotten good at the job. Absolutely. Congratulations to Charles. Up next Mike Myers negotiating a starring role in the Freddie Mercury biopic. Malik will play Freddie Mercury, the queen frontman with Myers starring alongside in an undisclosed role that would likely be a dream come true for Mike who often belled out "Bohemian rhapsody" and other queen songs while in character in "Wayne's world." Looking forward to that film. Then finally, guys, over the weekend it was the creative arts emmys and fifth time is a charm for miss Melissa Mccarthy who won for best outstandic comedy actress and the win is for one of her many appearances on "Saturday night live" last season.
