The new trailer for Prince Harry and Oprah Winfrey's Apple TV+ series, The Me You Can't See, all about mental health, has dropped and has confirmed the show is certainly one close to the royal's heart. Not only do Harry's wife, Meghan Markle, and his son, Archie, make an appearance in the promotional clip, but heartbreaking footage from Princess Diana's funeral is also included.
Due to air 21 May, the trailer shows that the programme is all about breaking stigmas surrounding poor mental health, the power in asking for help and support if you need it, and also features celebrity appearances from the likes of Glenn Close and Lady Gaga.
Oprah begins by saying, "All over the world, people are in some kind of mental, psychological, emotional pain." Harry, clearly motivated by his own experience, later tells the TV host, "To make that decision to receive help is not a sign of weakness, in today's world more than ever, it is a sign of strength."
A voiceover then says, "People that acknowledge their mental health struggles, they're really like superheroes" as clips of a woman boxing and a man crying are played. Then, as the trailer progresses, "Treating people with dignity is the first act" can be heard as an image of Prince Harry standing behind his mother's coffin in 1997, next to Prince Charles, is shown.
As for the Meghan and Archie cameos, Meghan appears first behind Harry who is sat at a laptop. She's wearing high-waisted black trousers and a t-shirt that says 'Raising The Future' on it and smiles at whatever is on the computer screen. As Meghan doesn't look visibly pregnant (and is currently approaching the end of her pregnancy with a baby girl), we can assume this was shot several months ago.
The Duchess of Sussex then makes a further appearance when the video of her reading the book Duck! Rabbit! to Archie is played, as Harry says, "The results of this year will be felt for decades, the kids, families, husbands, wives, everybody."
Below the trailer on YouTube, a description reads: "The Me You Can’t See is a new docuseries co-created by Oprah Winfrey and Prince Harry, that explores mental health and emotional well-being with stories from people around the world. With storytelling at its core, this timely series gives a voice to stories that aim to seek truth, understanding and compassion. It’s about people, our experiences, and why we feel the way that we do."
We're looking forward to tuning in.
