Harry will guest edit BBC Radio 4 Today on Wednesday, Dec. 27.

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.

Mr Obama even asked Harry if he should put on a British accent for the radio slot. "But if you start using long pauses between the answers, you're probably gonna get the face". "It's fun. I'll interview you if you want?" "I'd much prefer that", Prince Harry said before chuckling. The Obama family stopped by the palace during an worldwide diplomatic mission, and the prince recently flew over to the states for a visit with the former First Lady. "Oh, ok. I don't want to see that face", says Mr Obama.

The palace said the conversation features Mr Obama talking about his plans to focus on cultivating the next generation of leadership through the Obama Foundation.

Laura Horton, a lawyer for Cantor, said by phone "it's outrageous conduct and I fully intend to hold the NFL Network responsible". Former Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb is mentioned in a lawsuit alleging sexual harassment at the NFL Network .

Kensington Palace said the chat, part of Harry's guest editorship of the show, was recorded in Toronto in September during the Invictus Games.

At this year's Invictus Games, Obama reportedly quizzed Harry on his relationship with Meghan Markle as they watched wheelchair basketball. The Prince replied with a video of himself watching the challenge with his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II.
