Michael Parkinson's dream interview would be with Queen Elizabeth because "nobody knows what she thinks"
Michael Parkinson's dream interviewee is Queen Elizabeth.
The legendary chat show host - who has interviewed Madonna, Victoria Beckham and Sir Paul McCartney in the past - would love to interview the British monarch because there is nothing she hasn't seen.
He said: "There's only one interview to be done and that's with the queen. What an interview that would be! Just imagine if it did! Where do you start? Where do you end? She's seen everybody. Nobody knows what she thinks.
"I'm not suggesting she should go on a talk show, but there should be some kind of record of her thoughts on everything she has been through and witnessed."
Michael believes she is an "extraordinary" woman and would be able to tell what had happened to the UK in her 60 year reign like no other person.
He added to the Radio Times: "She's an extraordinary woman - all the people she has met and the opinions she must have. She has seen most clearly of all what has happened to her country over the years."
