Even though the big day is 147 days away, it seems the happy couple are yet to sort out the guest list. When pressed on whether he’ll invite former President Barack Obama, who he interviewed during his time on the radio show, and wife Michelle Obama to his wedding next year, Harry said: "I don't know about that, we haven't even put the invite or the guest list together, who knows if he's going to be invited or not, I wouldn't want to ruin that surprise."

The Queen’s son spoke about his desire to combat climate change, and how proud he is that his youngest boy is following in his footsteps. “Well, darling boy, it makes me very proud to think that you understand,” Charles said.
