Former U.S. president Barack Obama and Prince Harry traded quips as they prepared to record an interview that will air two days after Christmas.

In a 48-second preview of an interview between the Prince of Wales and former President Barack Obama - released on Twitter by the verified account of Kensington Palace - the two figures exchanged playful banter in preparation for the official recording.

"If you start using long pauses between your answers, you're going to get 'the face, '" Harry jokingly warned in response.

In a successful attempt to lighten up the mood, Prince Harry said he was still nervous about the interview to which Obama jokingly offered to interview him instead. It will also be available as a podcast.

"I'm nervous about this, that's what's quite amusing", he told Barack who appeared his usual cool, calm and collected self.

"No, no. Let's keep it this way".

"I don't want to see that face", Obama says.

Kensington Palace said the conversation features Obama talking about his plans to focus on cultivating the next generation of leadership through the Obama Foundation. "Because I'm a slow speaker", the former president asked the prince.

The pair were seated next to each other at this year's event, seen sharing a laugh as Obama reportedly quizzed Harry on his relationship with Meghan Markle during a wheelchair basketball match.

'We wish you a lifetime of joy and happiness together'.
