Harry interviews Obama for BBC radio

Former US president Barack Obama and Prince Harry

As part of his guest editorship on BBC Radio 4's Today Show Prince Harry sat down and recorded an interview with Obama during September's Invictus Games.

In a sneak preview uploaded earlier today (December 17), the former U.S. President joked around before the iconic interview.

Prince Harry asks the former president about what it was like leaving the White House, his plans for life after presidency, and his charity, the Obama Foundation.

And Harry told him: "You're excited about this - I'm nervous".

Footage of their pre-interview chat was released by the BBC today ahead of the full December 27 broadcast on Radio 4's Today Programme. "Because I'm a slow speaker", Obama jokes in the teaser offered up on the palace's Twitter feed.

"No, no, let's keep it this way", Harry said, laughing.

Then, after the prince demonstrated what he meant, Obama said: 'I don't want to see that face'.

In the interview, scheduled to be released later this month, questioned Mr Obama about his memories of the day he left office and his post-presidential work with the Obama Foundation, according to Kensington Palace.

Since Obama left the Oval Office, he has met Harry a number of times including stopping into Kensington Palace in May while he was touring Europe.

The bromance between Britain's Prince Harry and former United States president Barack Obama has continued during an interview for British radio.

They bonded during this year's Invictus Games, where they watched a bunch of events together and just bro'd on down.

Michelle and I are delighted to congratulate Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on their engagement.
