Following the announcement of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s huge Netflix deal last year, they’ve confirmed their first project.

Known for championing causes close to their hearts, it comes as no surprise to find that Prince Harry and Meghan's first TV series will cover the Invictus Games.

Heart of Invictus will follow a group of competitors from around the world as they prepare for next year’s tournament in the Netherlands.

The series will cover the sporting event organisers and competitors as they prepare for the spring 2022 games in The Hague, which has already been postponed twice due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

“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,” explained Prince Harry in a statement.

The Invictus Games was founded by Prince Harry in 2014 and the royal himself is set to appear in the series, as well as acting as an executive producer.

“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,” continued Harry.

A press release confirmed that Archewell Productions will produce this first series alongside director Orlando von Einsiedel and producer Joanna Natasegara, who are known for their Oscar-winning documentary The White Helmets and the Emmy-winning Virunga.

This marks just the start of Harry and Meghan's multi-year deal with Netflix. We can also expect feature films, scripted shows, documentaries and children’s programming for the streaming site.
