Maria's Conversation with Queen Noor

By Maria Hinojosa

Getting ready to interview Her Majesty Queen Noor was one of the few times that I felt just a bit nervous. I had never interviewed official royalty on Maria Hinojosa: One-on-One and of course the first thing that comes to mind is protocol. One never touches royalty unless they extend a hand. Queen Noor more than extended a hand. She was gracious and engaging with everyone in the studio. She is not a fast speaker--thoughtful and smart is more her style. It was an honest and revealing conversation. When she said a final good bye from a far, I threw her a pretend hug. She turned around and came back to give me one for real. Such is the touch of Her Majesty.
