England's Prince Harry interviews former U.S. President Barack Obama as part of his guest editorship of BBC Radio 4's Today program which is to be broadcast on December 27, 2017.

That's what makes an upcoming, four-part series interview featuring Harry interviewing Barack so exciting.

"Do I need a British accent?" a jovial Obama interrupts, asking whether he will have to speak more quickly. Harry assured him that he didn't have to, "but if you start using long pauses between the answers, you're going to get the face", he said, giving the former president a pointed look.

In the teaser released by the palace, Prince Harry outlines how the interview will proceed to a relaxed Mr Obama. It will also be available as a podcast.

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

A weekly overview of the chatter from Kensington Palace and beyond. The Obama family stopped by the palace during an worldwide diplomatic mission, and the prince recently flew over to the states for a visit with the former First Lady.

Kensington Palace said the conversation, which airs December 27, focuses on the pair's "shared interest in building platforms for the next generation of young leaders".

At this year's Invictus Games, Mr Obama reportedly quizzed Harry on his romance with Meghan Markle as they watched the wheelchair basketball.
