Here “The King Of Kamelot” sits down for an exclusive interview with The Duchess right after her appearance on the Today Show to talk about her newest children’s book “Ballerina Rosie”, how she used her own experiences in creating Rosie and the new series of books, her thoughts on the London Olympics, her incredible charity work, and soo much more! What an absolute honor to sit with The Duchess Of York, who couldn’t have been nicer, more humble, and autographed a number of books for family and fans. An ENORMOUS THANK YOU to Paul at Books Of Wonder in Union Square, NYC, for hosting my interview and being so accommodating. Enjoy Kade Nation!!
