Prince Harry put Barack Obama to the take a look at at this time, difficult him to a quickfire quiz on BBC Radio four. Sure, we could also be extra accustomed to HRH and the previous president discussing points like state coverage, psychological well being and immigration, however as a part of Prince Harry’s takeover of radio programme Today, we have been handled to topics like Suits and, erm, boxer shorts.
