Prince Harry Gets Candid with US Former President Barack Obama for 'Today'

Prince Harry Gets Candid with US Former President Barack Obama for 'Today'”

Prince Harry may be busy getting ready for his wedding to Meghan Markle, but he still found time to interview President Barack Obama for an upcoming BBC Radio 4 Christmas special.

Before the interview's start, President Obama joked and asked if he would need to speak with a British accent.

Prince Harry later confessed: "You're excited about this and I'm nervous about it, that's what's quite amusing", to which Mr Obama replied: "I will interview you if you want".

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. Watch the preview below.

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

The interview was recorded in Toronto in September during the Invictus Games, a sports event for injured military personnel championed by the Prince.

Kensington Palace said the conversation features Obama talking about his plans to focus on cultivating the next generation of leadership through the Obama Foundation.

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

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.

A video clip showing friendly banter between Prince Harry and President Obama is getting a lot of online love and attention.

Last year, Obama and his wife, Michelle, posted a mock challenge to Harry on Twitter, telling him to "bring it" before the 2016 Invictus Games.
