Our favorite gingy, Prince Harry (well, my favorite, after Jidenna, Malcolm X and Jade McKnight) of England, sat down with former President (well, my current president) Barack Obama for the BBC as the two peas in a pod chatted about all the good things in the world.


According to CNN, the interview took place in September during the Invictus Games in Toronto and will air on the BBC Today radio program on Dec. 27.

The Invictus Games are a sporting event for wounded military members that Harry is especially fond of. It was at the games this year that he first publicly stepped out with his now fiancee, Meghan Markle.

The palace said that the conversation featured Obama’s discussion about his memories of the day he left office and his plans for the Obama Foundation, whose goal is to cultivate a new generation of leaders.

Harry seems to enjoy an especially close relationship with the Obamas, and he and Barack meet up semifrequently for community service projects both in the U.S. and in Great Britain.
