Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Just Announced Their First Netflix Series
The docuseries will focus on former service members competing in the upcoming Invictus Games.
Let’s be real: Netflix (and every other streaming service) kept us from going totally bonkers over the past year. With amazing shows like the return of Supermarket Sweep and Michelle Obama’s adorable kids show Waffles + Mochi, it’s easy to get lost in the long list of available shows.
Now it’s time to prepare for something a little different. Last year, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry announced their partnership with Netflix. Their aim was to create content that invoked inspiration and hope—two things we can never have enough of! Now, they’ve announced their first official docuseries, Heart of Invictus.
What Will the Show Be About?
The show will focus on the competitors of the future Invictus Games, which were pushed back from 2020 to 2022. Prince Harry, the Duke of Sussex, launched the international Invictus Games back in 2014 as a way to help wounded servicemen and women physically, mentally and emotionally through sports. After seeing the Warrior Games, a similar event held by the United States Department of Defense, the Duke knew he wanted to bring the idea back to the UK.
According to a press release on the Invictus Games site, “The multi-episode series will join the competitors as they train, and along the way reveal powerful stories of resilience and hope. The series will also follow the organizers as they work to prepare for the Games, postponed until next spring, and as they partner with each nation’s team to support their competitors over the coming year.”
Meagan and Harry’s company, Archewell Productions, will produce the series specifically for Netflix.
When Can We Expect to See It?
There’s currently no set date since Megan and Harry just made the announcement. But, hopefully, we can expect to watch the show sometime before the 2022 Invictus Games. And for those wondering, yes, Prince Harry will have some quality screen time. Keep your eyes and ears peeled for more about an upcoming release date!
