Kensington Palace has released a teaser from a sit-down interview involving Prince Harry and former U.S. president Barack Obama, in which the two exchange banter ahead of their one-on-one chat.
Everyone’s favourite red-haired prince is slated to interview Obama for approximately 40 minutes, with the discussion expected to be edited down to 20 minutes for release at a later date on television and as a podcast.
In the video, the two good-naturedly discuss the tone of the interview before proceeding.
“Do I need a British accent?” Obama says.
Harry tells him no, but urges him to talk more rapidly than his usual speed.
“If you start using long pauses between the answers, you’re probably going to get ‘The Face,’” Harry says, before making a grumpy face for effect.
“I don’t want to see that face,” Obama says.
The former POTUS also offers to turn the tables and interview the prince instead.
“No no, let’s keep it this way,” Harry says. “I much prefer that.”
