Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announce first Netflix project
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have shared the details of their latest Netflix project that their production company Archewell Productions landed.
It's a documentary series called Heart of Invictus that follows Invictus Games competitors as they prepare for the 2022 event in the Hague.
Prince Harry will serve as an executive producer as well as appearing on camera during the series.
"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," the Duke of Sussex said in a statement announcing the project.
"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."
Invictus Games Foundation chief executive Dominic Reid is thrilled about the project.
