As CNN’s Royal Correspondent, Foster leads commentary during British state and royal events and has interviewed more senior royals than any of his UK counterparts, including the now King Charles III, the Prince and Princess of Wales, as well as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. He has travelled extensively across Europe, Africa, Asia and the Americas on royal tours, all experience that has made him a leading voice in the field.

He was instrumental in CNN’s live breaking news coverage of the death and state funeral of Queen Elizabeth II, reported extensively on the rise and fall of four British Prime Ministers, and covered the latest revelations from Prince Harry following his step down as a formal member of the royal family.
