Prince Harry smelled of alcohol and cigarettes, according to Katie Couric | Royal | New
After four decades as a TV host, Katie Couric is releasing a memoir full of anecdotes that some of her famous guests would have preferred to keep private. In “Going There”, the 64-year-old presenter reveals bizarre details about her industry, her own private life, her colleagues and even Prince Harry.
As of 2012, the royal was still the eligible bachelor who loved to party and was invited by Couric for an interview for ABC News.
The TV host wanted to interview her on his tour across the Commonwealth celebrating his grandmother’s 60th reign.
The face-to-face interview was then filmed in Brazil after she first met him during a polo match.
In the 500-page book, Couric recalled meeting Harry during his “wild oat sowing phase”.
When she met the prince, she recalled that the smell of cigarettes and alcohol seemed to “seep from every pore” of her body, as reported by the Daily Mail.
The interview broadcast on the American channel was largely devoted to questions about Queen Elizabeth.
The Duke of Sussex said in particular that his grandmother “had succeeded in making the monarchy evolve with the times”.
Prince Harry has reportedly quit smoking since he married Meghan Markle in 2018, in addition to adopting a healthier lifestyle.

One can only expect Harry to forgive Couric for using such strong words about his body odor in his book, as they should be collaborating again very soon.
In fact, the Duke of Sussex is one of the leaders of the Aspen Institute’s Commission on Information Disorder.
