Prince Harry will soon be making his broadcast debut, heading up an edition of the BBC's flagship morning radio news programme, Today.

And the prince has bagged himself one of the world's most sought-after guests, former US president Barack Obama.

The revelation was made after the BBC and Kensington Palace shared a sneak preview of the pair talking to each other during the interview made back in September.

The pair have bonded closely over the years thanks to their work on the Invictus Games.

The footage, which was filmed and recorded at the games in Toronto, showed the two sharing jokes.

Prince Harry was explaining the editorial process about the show to the president when Obama interrupted, asking if he needed "a British accent?"

The prince, who is due to marry the American actress and campaigner Meghan Markle in April 2018, replied, saying "not at all" but warned that he would give "the face" if there were too many long pauses in the president's replies.

Harry shows the former president his "face" as Obama grins before responding: "I don't want to see that face."

They both discussed the memories that Obama had as he left office as well as life after the presidency.

Reacting to the snippets on social media, fans and admirers were pleased to see both men getting along so well.

Prince Harry's stint as guest editor of the Today Programme, will be broadcast on the 27 December on BBC Radio 4 with a 20-minute version of his interview with the president will be aired. A longer 40-minute conversation will be released afterwards on the Radio 4 website and via podcast.

Renee Rousseau said: "OMG! I miss my president so much. I love the interaction between Barack and Harry."

Rhonda Dodson said: "I love this! It's wonderful to see two great men that truly care about humanity together. It makes me miss having a POTUS with class, dignity & intelligence."

Aisha Malik said: "This is the best ever! Real President... best role model ... wonderful husband. He is America... Prince Harry is UK #LoveTheBromance"
