Barack Obama And Prince Harry Prepared For Their Interview Together By Trading Jokes

"Do I need a British accent?"

The friendship between Prince Harry and Barack Obama continues, at least according to footage from a previously recorded interview between the two released this weekend. The newly engaged prince is set to guest-edit the BBC Radio 4's Today morning show in December and talked with the former president earlier this year for the program. Kensington Palace teased the soon-to-be-released interview between Prince Harry and Obama with some behind-the-scenes footage of the two preparing in most Prince Harry and Barack Obama way: by cracking jokes.


The interview was recorded in September at the Invictus Games when Prince Harry and Obama were both in Toronto to cheer on their respective countries at the sporting event for wounded soldiers, which Prince Harry helped found. In the clip, the two are seen talking through how the interview will proceed when Obama interjects to ask if he needs to speak quicker than he normally does and whether he needs to use a British accent. 

"Not at all," Prince Harry says, but warns that if the former president starts taking too long to respond, he'll get "the face."

"I don't want to see that face," Obama says in response to Prince Harry's mock-serious facial expression. 

According to Kensington Palace's post, the two spent the interview discussing the day Obama left office and the work both he and Prince Harry are now doing to inspire the future generation of leaders

The Internet, of course, was excited to see that the bromance between the two leaders continues.

A condensed version of the interview between Obama and Prince Harry will air Dec. 27th on BBC Radio 4, with the full version available via podcast afterward.
