Earlier this year, Tish and Cord engaged in controversial coverage of the Rose Parade for Amazon, so their faces may look familiar. Prior to the Royal Wedding special, Cord told The Hollywood Reporter that, “Tish and I have covered that parade for the last 23 years. In some ways, the wedding won’t be any different. If you think about it, Meghan and Harry are just one big float passing us all by.” And, when it comes to future events, Cord said, “We’ve had a lot of great ideas from our fans on Twitter, everything from the Olympics to the St. Paddy’s Day parade. I personally would love the Westminster Dog Show.” Tish said she dreams of covering the Met Gala and the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.
