Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s first Netflix series has been announced. Their project announcement comes after they signed a production deal last year. The series is going to be a deeply personal project. Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s docu-series is called the Heart of Invictus, produced by their television production company, Archewell Productions. It will document the behind-the-scenes story of the Invictus Games.
The series will follow “a group of extraordinary competitors from around the globe, all service members who have suffered life-changing injuries or illnesses on their road to the Invictus Games The Hague 2020, now set to take place in 2022,” Netflix said.
Prince Harry has been a champion of the Invictus Games since its inception so it’s fitting that Archewell’s first Netflix series will spotlight and celebrate the competition’s amazing athletes.

Prince Harry, a military veteran himself, founded The Invictus Games in 2014. It is an international sporting event for wounded, injured, and sick military service members, both serving and veterans. Prince Harry and Meghan have brought in the director Orlando von Einsiedel and the producer Joanna Natasegara to oversee the making of the project.
