He’s used to public speaking but that doesn’t mean that Prince Harry doesn’t get nervous like everyone else.

In a new video released by the official Kensington Royal Instagram page, the 33-year-old sits down for an interview with former US president Barack Obama.

The full interview is expected to be released in the UK on BBC Radio 4 on December 27, but a sneak-peak of Harry gearing up to speak with Obama has been released online.

The usually-confident Harry looks slightly intimidated in the clip.

In the video, Obama can be seen asking the soon-to-be-married royal if he needs him to speak faster and if he needs to speak in a British accent.

Prince Harry joked that there would be problems if Obama started using long pauses between his answers and hinted that he’d get a death stare if that was the case.

“I don’t want to see that face,” Obama joked as he laughed with the soon-to-be-married royal.

Prince Harry then asked his guest if he was excited, before revealing his own nerves.

“You’re excited about this, I’m nervous about this, actually,” he confessed.
