Britain’s Prince Charles has given a rare interview that will be broadcast on the eve of his first joint official tour with his new wife, Camilla.

CBS television’s “60 Minutes” correspondent Steve Kroft interviewed the heir to the British throne last month in the English village of Poundbury — the prince’s pioneer project in social and ecological harmony.

Details of the interview were not immediately available. It will be aired on Oct. 30.

Charles and Camilla, who married in April after a 35-year affair, will visit New York, Washington and San Francisco in November.

The official tour is seen as the first test abroad of the popularity of the newlyweds. Charles’ first wife, Princess Diana, was extremely popular in the United States before her death in a 1997 car crash.
