We are excited to announce that The Duke of Sussex and Oprah Winfrey are partners, co-creators and executive producers on their forthcoming mental health series launching on Apple in 2020. The pair have been developing the series for several months and are looking forward to sharing such an important project on this global platform. The dynamic multi-part documentary series will focus on both mental illness and mental wellness, inspiring viewers to have an honest conversation about the challenges each of us faces, and how to equip ourselves with the tools to not simply survive, but to thrive. This commitment builds on The Duke of Sussex’s long-standing work on issues and initiatives regarding mental health, where he has candidly shared personal experience and advocated for those who silently suffer, empowering them to get the help and support they deserve. His Royal Highness has spent many years working with communities throughout the UK and young people across the Commonwealth to break the stigma surrounding mental illness and broaden the conversation of mental wellness to accelerate change for a more compassionate, connected and positive society. Quote from HRH: “I truly believe that good mental health - mental fitness - is the key to powerful leadership, productive communities and a purpose-driven self. It is a huge responsibility to get this right as we bring you the facts, the science and the awareness of a subject that is so relevant during these times. Our hope is that this series will be positive, enlightening and inclusive - sharing global stories of unparalleled human spirit fighting back from the darkest places, and the opportunity for us to understand ourselves and those around us better. I am incredibly proud to be working alongside Oprah on this vital series.” A post shared by The Duke and Duchess of Sussex (@sussexroyal) on Apr 10, 2019 at 2:58am PDT

Report

Kensington Palace said the series will build on the Duke's "long-standing work on issues and initiatives regarding mental health, where he has candidly shared personal experience and advocated for those who silently suffer, empowering them to get the help and support they deserve".
Analysis by Royal correspondent Jonny Dymond
It is a celebrity match-up like no other; the Queen of US daytime TV will work with the Duke of Sussex, (also known as Harry) on a show to not only open up the conversation about mental health - a longstanding objective of Harry's - but also, says Kensington Palace, to equip viewers "with the tools to thrive, rather than simply survive." It's far from the first time Royal Family have dabbled in the dark arts of TV. In the late 60s, The Royal Family opened the doors on the family life of the Windsors. Since then, there have been interviews and profiles and collaborations aplenty.There are a fair few questions; how much, if at all, will Harry be on screen[/img]

In 2016, together with The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry launched the Heads Together mental health initiative and he is heavily involved in the Invictus Games Foundation which works with military veterans across the world.
