Prince Harry used his spot as guest editor of the Today programme to ask the really important questions. Questions like: does the former President of the United States like his future wife’s TV show?
During his period as BBC Radio 4 Today guest editor, Prince Harry ended a wide-ranging interview with Barack Obama with a cheeky quickfire Q&A – which included a sly reference to fiancée Meghan Markle.
From asking the former president whether he preferred ‘Queen’ or ‘The Queen’ and ‘The Rock’ or ‘Chris Rock’, the royal prince worked Obama hard during his appearance.
Prince Harry has taken the Today programme’s guest editor’s chair this year as part of Radio 4’s Christmas line-up shake-up. Other guest editors will include 95-year-old Conservative peer Lady Trumpington, English National Ballet artistic director Tamara Rojo, and novelist and poet Benjamin Okri.
Prince Harry: “Suits or The Good Wife?” Obama: “Well, Suits obviously…” Harry: “Good Answer.”
Prince Harry also interviewed his father the Prince of Wales for the show. He called the experience editing the programme “a big learning curve”, and said he was “hugely grateful” for being given the platform to discuss issues close to his heart.
