"Do I need the British accent?"

The interview was recorded during the Invictus Games in Toronto in September, according to a tweet from BBC Radio 4 Today and will be broadcast two days after Christmas.

The pair's longtime bromance was on full display as Harry interviewed the former USA president, trading quips in a teaser released on Monday morning (AEST).

"You're excited about this; I'm nervous about this", the prince said.

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

The Prince and the ex-President appear to have developed a friendship beginning when Mr Obama was in office.

"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. At that point, he shows off an awfully stern look at which the former commander-in-chief laughs, "I don't want to see that face!"

"The interview focuses on their shared interest in building platforms for the next generation of young leaders", Kensington Palace wrote on Twitter.

The two have been spotted together numerous times, mostly at sporting events, however we haven't heard much conversation between the two.
