After months of speculation the streaming platform has finally confirmed that Harry and Meghan’s latest project will drop on August 30. The Duke of Sussex’s Heart Of Invictus documentary will finally be available for fans to watch on August 30, Netflix has officially confirmed.
Despite concerns that the project had been cancelled, following a period of bad luck for the Sussexes, it will now be released in the run-up to next month’s Invictus Games, which kick off on September 9 in Düsseldorf, Germany Harry serves as executive producer on the programme, which is part of the Sussexes’ multimillion-pound deal with Netflix – their most successful release so far being last year’s explosive documentary series Harry & Meghan.
The six-part series released in December saw the couple tell the story of their relationship and their experiences as working royals living in the UK, before they sensationally quit in 2020 and moved to California. Meanwhile, the couple’s other lucrative media deal with Spotify ended abruptly in June after one season of Meghan’s podcast Archetypes.
Netflix unveiled its first trailer for the Heart Of Invictus limited series on Wednesday, which was filmed during the last games in the Netherlands as a camera crew followed Harry and Meghan around. In the trailer Harry is seen addressing the camera, saying: “The Games doesn’t focus on what causes the injury but really about the recovery and how to be part of a community again.”
While meeting competitors in The Hague Harry is heard saying: “Everyone is going to struggle at some point.” Netlix said of the series: “Heart Of Invictus follows a group of extraordinary competitors from around the globe: service members who have experienced life-changing injuries or illnesses on their road to the Invictus Games. Coming August 30.”
