Prince Harry jokes around with Barack Obama in radio interview

Former US president Barack Obama and Prince Harry

"You're excited about this; I'm nervous about this", the Prince is seen telling Mr Obama in a video released over the weekend by Kensington Palace. But we digress. According to the statement, Prince Harry and Obama sat down to talk about "their shared interest in building platforms for the next generation of young leaders", but the sneak peek is a lot more lighthearted.

Kensington Palace teased on Twitter that his show will include an interview with former USA president Barack Obama.

Obama also asked if he needed to have a British accent during the interview.

The interview recorded at September's Invictus Games in Toronto will be broadcast on BBC Radio 4 on December 27. Harry enlisted his grandmother, the Queen, for his comical response. "Because I'm a slow speaker", Obama jokes in the teaser offered up on the palace's Twitter feed.

Harry also told his interviewee that if he used long pauses between answers, he would probably get "the face".

Those who admire and miss President Obama have shared great excitement and enthusiasm over the upcoming interview.

The pair were seated next to each other at this year's event, seen sharing a laugh as Obama reportedly quizzed Harry on his relationship with Meghan Markle during a wheelchair basketball match.

Now, the BBC has dropped some adorable BTS footage of the two from a new interview that's coming on December 27.

Twiddling a pen, Harry tells Obama: "You're excited about this, I'm nervous about this, that's what's quite amusing".
