Prince Harry and former President Barack Obama had some fun banter before their interview on BBC Radio 4's "Today" program, the BBC reported. Now, the soon-to-be Wednesday prince is giving us even more reason to chuckle, as he prepares to sit down with Barack Obama for what is sure to be an epic interview set to air December 27.

Obama also asked if he needed to have a British accent during the interview.

"If you start leaving long pauses between the answers you're probably going to get the face".

"I don't want to see that face", Obama says after Harry demonstrates his glare.

The palace said the full interview will be made available as a podcast.

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

Obama replies: "I'll interview you if you want".

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

The prince and the president have enjoyed a friendship since Obama was in office.

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

Mr Obama and wife Michelle are tipped to fly in for Harry's Windsor Castle wedding to Meghan Markle next year. We wish you a lifetime of joy and happiness together.
