Prince Harry Interviews President Barack Obama For BBC Christmas Special

Prince Harry Interviews President Barack Obama For BBC Christmas Special

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.

Apparently the two men got together for this special interview during September's Invictus Games in Toronto-you know, when we got those first awesome pics of now-engaged Prince Harry and Meghan Markle holding hands.

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

In the teaser released by Kensington Palace, Harry outlines how the interview will proceed.

Prince Harry has interviewed Barack Obama. Obama began mocking himself for being a slow speaker then asked Prince Harry if he needed a British accent.

Obama also reminisced about his memories of leaving office and discussed his post-presidential work with the Obama Foundation, according to the palace.

"No, but if you start using long pauses between answers you're going to get "the face" before scowling.

Mr Obama quipped back: "Let me see the face", before joking, "I don't want to see that face".

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

Kensington Palace released a video of Obama and the prince joking around prior to the discussion.

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.
