British royal Prince Charles is the subject of an upcoming edition of heavyweight US TV show 60 MINUTES, which he hopes will boost the popularity of his new wife CAMILLA, Duchess of Cornwall in America.

Charles, who wed Camilla earlier this year (05), hasn't given a major television interview since 1994, when he admitted to veteran British interviewer JONATHAN DIMBLEBY that he had committed adultery on his late first wife DIANA, Princess Of Wales with Camilla.

A CBS network insider says, "The prince was concerned that, considering how well-loved Diana was (in the US), a visit with his new wife would not get much coverage.

"He basically wants Camilla to have a lot of attention."
