Obama asked, adding "Do I need a British accent?"

The interview is part of Harry's guest editorship of the program and features the former United States president sharing his memories of the day he left office and his hopes for his post-presidential life.

The episode will be edited down, but the full and complete interview should likely air on the upcoming podcast.

Without missing a beat, Harry responds "not at all" before warning the former commander-in-chief that he'll get "the face" if there are any long pauses between answers.

Obama, wearing a trademark U.S. flag lapel badge, replied: "I'll interview you if you want".

Obama is surely up there on the list of "people we like to see being normal and zesty", which is exactly why we all got obsessed with 'JoeBama', Obama's adorable friendship with his Vice President Joe Biden during his tenure and now close mate.

Only USC and Notre Dame have had more Heisman winners than Oklahoma. He also has 310 yards and five touchdowns as a runner.

And Harry told him: "You're excited about this - I'm nervous".

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

The interview, which is apart of the prince's guest editorship for the outlet, will delve into the men's shared goal of promoting youth leadership, as well as the day the president left office and his post-presidential life, according to Kensington Palace.

Since Obama left office, he has met Harry on several occasions, including a stop-over to Kensington Palace in May during his tour of Europe, and during Obama's Foundation Summit in October.

They bonded during this year's Invictus Games, where they watched a bunch of events together and just bro'd on down.
