It’s been months since we learned that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry scored a multimillion-dollar deal with Netflix. And we’re finally getting some details about their first project: a docuseries about the Duke of Sussex’s Invictus Games. The best part? Harry will appear in front of the camera.
If you didn’t know, Harry founded the Invictus Games—a Paralympics-style competition for wounded service personnel and veterans—back in 2014. And now, the program has announced a multi-episode series, Heart of Invictus, in a press release on its website. According to the release, the doc will follow the competitors “as they train and reveal powerful stories of resilience and hope.” In addition, the series will focus on the organizers as they work to prepare for the Games which have been postponed until 2022.
“Since the very first Invictus Games back in 2014, we knew that each competitor would contribute in their own exceptional way to a mosaic of resilience, determination, and resolve,” Prince Harry said in a statement on the Invictus Games’ website. “This series will give communities around the world a window into the moving and uplifting stories of these competitors on their path to the Netherlands next year.”
“As Archewell Productions' first series with Netflix, in partnership with the Invictus Games Foundation, I couldn't be more excited for the journey ahead or prouder of the Invictus community for continuously inspiring global healing, human potential and continued service.”
As we mentioned above, not only will the 35-year-old ex-royal serve as executive producer on the series, but he will appear on camera as well.
Unfortunately, no other details (like an expected release date) have been revealed yet. But you can bet we’ll be impatiently waiting for more info.
