Here’s when you can see it.
Throughout the tenure of former President Barack Obama, relations with the United Kingdom were smoother than they’ve been in the first year of the Donald Trump presidency. And, as if to remind everyone of that idea, a recently recorded interview between Obama and Prince Harry is set to hit the airwaves later this month, reminding the world of the pair’s seemingly warm friendship.
The official Kensington Palace Twitter account sent out a 48-second video clip from the interview early Sunday morning, good news for anyone looking for a little snippit to hold them over.

In the clip, Obama briefly asks whether he has to speed up his speech, noting that he’s a “slow speaker,” and whether he needs to use a British accent. Harry generously lets him off the hook on both, but reminds him that if he takes too many long pauses during his answers, he’s going to get a sour face in response.
This isn’t the first face-to-face meeting between the two men this year. In May, Obama traveled to the U.K. to visit Prince Harry at Kensington Palace to discuss veterans affairs and mental health. Harry opened up about his own mental health history earlier this year, describing the years of pain and depression he experienced following the death of his mother, Princess Diana, in 1997.
The actual interview took place months ago, back in September, but hasn’t been released yet. Anyone curious to hear what the pair ended up talking about―Harry says in the clip that the conversation was set to become a 20-minute BBC package and that he hoped the full audio would be released as an extended podcast―will want to check back on Dec. 27. That’s when it’s set to air on BBC Radio 4.
