Trending News: In an unexpected and delightful turn of events, a viral video has taken the internet by storm. The incident occurred during an interview with royal historian Marlene Koenig, who was discussing Prince Harry's hacking court case with presenter Sally Bundock on the BBC. As Koenig shared her insights from Virginia via a video call, her cat, Fleur, made an impromptu appearance, surprising everyone.
Fleur, a two-and-a-half-year-old rescue cat, seemed eager to join the conversation and hopped onto her owner's lap mid-interview.
