Prince Harry's upcoming Netflix documentary series, Heart of Invictus is well and truly underway, following the drop of the first trailer and the announcement of its release date. It comes as the streaming platform confirmed that the Duke of Sussex's latest project is set to air on August 30, and will "follow six people competing in the 2022 Invictus Games, a global event founded by Prince Harry that helps wounded service members heal through sports."
Thanks to the trailer - which sees Harry give a speech to Invictus participants, plus, explore the hardships those taking part face - viewers can get a little taste of what's to come.
"It is here at the Invictus Games that you realise whatever you carry, it was the springboard that propelled you to the next level," he shares.
"The Games doesn't focus on what causes the injury, but really about the recovery and how to be part of a community again."
Following this, the footage cuts to a select few competitors from around the world, and captures them getting ready for the monumental event. It also shows them sharing their stories, and how they've adjusted to life post-injury.
"When I was a soldier, that meant the world to me. Once I was wounded, how do you define yourself then?" one participant expressed. Another of those involved was a Ukrainian soldier, who - in a remote interview - revealed that 90% of her team is currently serving. But while speaking, she was cut off due to a shelling in the background.
The trailer concludes with Harry, again addressing the crowd with a pretty inspirational speech. "You are people of substance, of resilience, of strength," he says.
"You have the heart of Invictus."
Heart of Invictus will be available to stream on Netflix from 30 August.
