The Palace’s Twitter handle tweeted: The interview focuses on their shared interest in building platforms for the next generation of young leaders.

The newly engaged prince was chosen as the guest editor of the show and the show was recorded in Toronto during the Invictus Games that was held in September. The teaser which is a 48-second clip, showcased Harry revealing how the interview will proceed. Obama asked him whether he will have to speak faster as he is a slow speaker and he later also asked him jokingly whether he will have to speak with a British accent or no. Harry responded “not at all” but he also warned him that he can expect “the face” when there will long pause between the replies. Later Obama responded: “I don’t want to see that face”. Harry told Obama: “You’re excited about this, I’m nervous about this, that’s what’s quite funny,” to which Obama replied, “I’ll interview you if you want.” Harry said: “No, no, let’s keep it this way.”
Here is the tweet:
