The Harry and Barry bromance show is coming!

Britain's Prince Harry interviewed his good friend, former U.S. President Barack Obama, in September for a BBC Radio 4 special airing on Dec. 27.

Sneak preview clips indicate the two joked around and had fun – while sources have said Harry and his actress fiancée Meghan Markle are no fans of current President Donald Trump!

Harry, 33, and Obama, 56, reportedly got together for the chat around the same time both attended the Invictus Games in Toronto, with Markle, 36, also on hand.

The Kensington Palace Twitter account released a sneak peek of the interview and Harry looked very comfortable talking to Obama.

"Do I have to speak faster, because I'm a slow speaker," Obama asked Harry.

"Not at all," Harry replied.

The ex-President also asked the prince if he needed to affect a British accent.

Harry said no but did tease Obama about pausing, saying, "If you start using long pauses between the answers, you're probably gonna get 'the face."

"...I don't wanna see that face," Obama told Harry.

In the rest of the interview, Obama will discuss his memories of the day he left the Presidency and his hopes for the rest of his life, particularly his plans for the Obama Foundation.

While Harry clearly loves hanging out with Obama, he's not happy about Trump, as US Weekly has reported.

A source told the magazine that Harry, an animal activist and humanitarian, "is not a fan" of Trump because "Harry thinks the president is a serious threat to human rights."

As The Mirror reported, Markle also expressed her dislike for Trump, branding the then-Republican nominee as "misogynistic" during an interview on The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore.

"Yes of course Trump is divisive," Markle also commented on the show back in May 2016, long before she became Harry's bride to be!

This September, however, Harry welcomed First Lady Melania Trump to the Invictus Games while his girlfriend Markle sat apart from them.

But Markle won't be shunted to the side any longer! The Prince announced his engagement to Markle last month and they're planning a May 19 wedding which Obama and his wife Michelle are sure to attend!

The question is, will the Trumps also be invited?
