Adapting a translation / Anpassen der Übersetzung ans Zielland

Princes Charles, William and Harry were on an ITV chat show recently. According to the BBC:

bq. The young princes also reveal “there is usually an argument over the remote” and that they watch reality TV shows including Pop Idol and I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! – both presented by their interviewers.

CNN reports:

bq. Britain’s young Princes William and Harry are fans of “American Pop Idol” and “Friends” and argue with their father Prince Charles over the TV remote control, they have revealed in an interview.

I’m not sure if they really do watch ‘American Pop Idol’ or just the British equivalent. I suspect the latter.

But in the Rheinische Post (paper version, May 20) I read:

bq. Die britischen Prinzen William und Harry sind zumindest in punkto Fernsehgewohnheiten ganz normale Menschen: “Wir streiten uns um die Fernbedienung”, sagte William dem Senden ITV1. Die US-Serie “Friends” sei immer eine sichere Bank, ergänzte sein jüngerer Bruder. Auch Talentshows wie “Deutschland sucht den Superstar” lieben die Prinzen.
