Prince Harry Interviewed Obama and Their Bromance Is Clearly Going Strong
Get ready for so many inside jokes.
Prince Harry and former President Barack Obama truly have a bromance for the ages.
Since meeting many years ago while Obama was still in office and Harry was still a single prince, the pair have undeniably grown their bond. When Harry announced his engagement to American actress Meghan Markle, Obama, along with his wife Michelle, even took time out of their busy schedules to congratulate the pair on Twitter.
"Michelle and I are delighted to congratulate Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on their engagement," the couple wrote. "We wish you a lifetime of joy and happiness together."
And now it appears their friendship is paying off, as Harry recently scored a very rare one-on-one interview with the former president for BBC Radio 4.
Though in a quick sneak peek tweeted out by Kensington Palace it’s clear that not only will this be an in-depth interview, it will also come jam-packed with the pair’s inside jokes.
“Do I need to speak with a British accent,” the former president asks the prince.
“No, but if you start using long pauses between the answers you’re going to get the face,” Harry replies.
The prince then shares with Obama that he's nervous about conducting the interview, which he was doing as part of his guest editing duties. Obama sweetly offers, “I’ll interview you if you want.” Harry replies, with a laugh, “Let’s keep it this way. I’d much prefer that.”
According to the palace, Prince Harry’s interview with Obama focuses largely around their "shared interest in building platforms for the next generation of young leaders." It also touches on Obama’s “memories of the day he left office and his hopes for his post-presidential life, including his plans to focus on cultivating the next generation of leadership.”
If you miss the broadcast on Dec. 27 have no fear, as according to the palace the entire interview will also be released as a podcast.
