Get ready for some pretty majestic content on Netflix! After signing a major production contract with the streaming service last fall, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Archewell Foundation announced their first Netflix project.
On Tuesday, Archewell Productions announced the new Netflix series, Invictus Heart, a documentary series by Oscar-winning documentary filmmakers Orlando Von Einsiedel and Joanna Natasegara. It will tell the stories of wounded veterans training to compete in the Invictus Games, which Prince Harry helped found.
The games were originally scheduled for 2020 in The Hague, but due to the coronavirus pandemic they have been postponed until 2022.
A release date for the series has not been announced.
“From the first Invictus Games in 2014, we knew that each competitor would contribute in an exceptional way to a mosaic of endurance, determination and resolve,” Prince Harry said in a statement. “This series will provide communities around the world a window into the moving and uplifting stories of these competitors on their way to the Netherlands next year.”
Harry, who started the Invictus Games while still a high-ranking member of the royal family, apparently referenced his intention to continue working as a sponsor of the organization.
“I could not be more excited for the journey ahead or more proud of the Invictus community for continually inspiring global healing, human potential and continued service,” he added.
Harry and Meghan officially resigned as senior members of the royal family earlier this year and lost their royal patronages in the process, but some organizations, such as the Invictus Games, expressed plans to continue working with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
