Prince Harry, Oprah Teaming Up For Apple TV+ Doc Series on Mental Health
British royalty and American TV royalty are colliding!
Apple and Kensington Palace announced that Prince Harry is teaming up with Oprah Winfrey for a documentary series on mental health to air on Apple TV+.
Last month, Winfrey joined a handful of other A-list stars to unveil Apple TV+ and its slate of shows, including this multi-part docuseries.
At the time, she said it would show “how the scourge of depression and anxiety, post-traumatic stress, addiction, trauma and loss is just devastating lives daily across the globe."
Kensington Palace noted that the Duke of Sussex has been engaged in "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.”
In recent years, Prince Harry has spoken candidly about his own mental health struggles after the death of his mother, Princess Diana.
In a statement, the Duke of Sussex said, “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."
Winfrey was a guest at Prince Harry's wedding to Meghan Markle last year.
