The clip, released by the Kensington Palace Twitter account, features Obama asking Harry if he needs to speak faster or with a British accent during the interview.
Harry then jokes with his guest about avoiding long pauses during the segment unless he wants to see "the face."
"I don't want to see that face," Obama says after Harry gave a comedic, disapproving look.
Harry is interviewing Obama to discuss their shared interest in "building platforms for the next generation of young leaders," Kensington Palace said on Twitter. The interview will air on Dec. 26 on BBC News Radio 4.

"I'm nervous about this," Harry continues in the preview.
"It's fun. I'll interview you, if you want," Obama says.
Harry replies, "Let's keep it this way, I'd much prefer that."
