In a sneak preview uploaded earlier today (December 17), the former U.S. President joked around before the iconic interview. Mr Obama asked during the clip, adding, "Do I need a British accent?" Harry assured him that he didn't have to, "but if you start using long pauses between the answers, you're going to get the face", he said, giving the former president a pointed look.

"I'm nervous about this, that's what's quite amusing", he told Barack who appeared his usual cool, calm and collected self.

A segment of their chat will be broadcast on BBC Radio 4 on December 27th, and the full interview will go up later as a podcast.

Harry was interviewing Barry as part of his guest editorship of the programme, recording the interview during the Invictus Games in Toronto in September.

"The interview focuses on their shared interest in building platforms for the next generation of young leaders", Kensington Palace wrote on Twitter.




"Oh, ok. I don't want to see that face", says Mr Obama.

"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.

Since Obama left office, he has met Harry on several occasions, including a stop-over to Kensington Palace in May during his tour of Europe, and during Obama's Foundation Summit in October.

Some viewers commented that they hoped Prince Harry and Meghan Markle would invite President Obama and Michelle to the wedding and not President Trump and First Lady Melania.
