Prince Harry and former U.S. President Barack Obama may be old friends by this point, but that doesn’t mean the royal prince doesn’t still get a little nervous around the former world leader! The famous red head sat down to interview his old pal for BBC Radio 4 at the Invictus Games in Toronto in September, and the Kensington Palace has released a sneak preview of the interview, which will air on Dec. 27. Click through to see the hilarious exchange between Harry and Barack!
In the video, Barack admits that he’s a “slow speaker” and asks if he’ll need “to speak faster.”
Prince Harry replies “not at all” but jokes he’ll have to show him “the face” if he pauses too much during the interview. He then glares at the former president. “I don’t want to see that face,” Barack jokes back.
Next, Barack, asks if he’ll need a British accent. Number 44 is clearly in his element, while Harry seems a little, well, nervous, which he admits!
“I’m nervous about this,” he says. Barack assures him “it’s fun” and says he’ll interview Harry if he prefers. “No, no,” Harry responds. “Let’s keep it this way, I’d much prefer that.”
Harry and Barack struck up a bit of a bromance while the latter was in office and have remained friends. The two sat together at a wheelchair basketball tournament at the Invictus Games in September, and in October, Harry even joined Barack’s wife Michelle at a high school in Chicago.

And when Harry announced his engagement to American actress Meghan Markle in November, Barack tweeted, “Michelle and I are delighted to congratulate Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on their engagement. We wish you a lifetime of joy and happiness together.”
