When Harry Met Barack: Obama Tells Prince About Life After White House

Former President Barack Obama warned about the "dangers" of the internet and social media in a sitdown with Great Britain's Prince Harry. "All of us in leadership have to find ways to recreate a common space on the internet", he said.

He said: "For me, post-Christmas, at this time of year, I just hope everyone out there has had a chance to just think about the things that really matter and the difference that every single one of us can make".

Mr Obama spoke to Prince Harry in an interview conducted by his royal highness as a guest editor for BBC radio's daily morning news show and focused on their shared interest in promoting causes.

Speaking about his editing role, Prince Harry said: "I haven't done that many interviews but it was quite fun, especially interviewing President Obama".

It comes despite government mandarins urging Prince Harry not to invite the Obamas to his wedding for fear of infuriating Donald Trump.

Beyond social media, Obama and Harry also spoke about the pressures of the presidency and how Obama felt when he left the White House in January. "Where people who are willing to work hard are able to find a job that pays a living wage", Obama said. He and his wife, Catherine, had two receptions in Buckingham Palace: a traditional lunch for over 600 guests, which was hosted by the Queen and included dignitaries and officials, and a more intimate evening party for roughly 300 friends and family.

Pay double for AC local travel
What are the challenges in operating the AC local train? Reportedly there were teething issues with door closures during trials. The AC train will depart from Borivali station instead of Andheri station and will head to Churchgate.

Asked by Harry about what he would do now, Obama answered, "The things that are important to me haven't changed".

Harry was also asked about his wedding - and whether Obama would get an invite.

It has been subject of endless speculation in the British tabloids and elsewhere since the engagement was announced on November 27: Just who will be invited to the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle? The interview was taped in September during the Invictus Games in Toronto, a event created by Harry for wounded, injured or ill servicemen and veterans.

"We haven't put the invites or the guest list together".

"There's always that family part of Christmas [where] there's always that work element there as well, and I think together we had an fantastic time", Harry, who recently debuted two gorgeous engagement portraits with Markle, said. "Wouldn't want to ruin that surprise". "That we're conserving the awesome resources of our planet so that future generations can enjoy the beauty of this place, like we did".
