Oprah & Prince Harry Team Up For New Mental Health Series

Oprah has a new project up her sleeve! And this time, it’s with the Duke of Sussex Prince Harry. The royal palace announced the news on social media:

“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 caption went on to give more details about the documentary, that will include multiple episodes.

“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.”

It added that it’s Prince Harry’s latest initiative to support the mental health cause.

“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.”

It ended the announcement with a quote from the Prince. 

“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.”’

Winfrey also commented and expressed her excitement for the upcoming project.


“Delighted to be partnering with you. Hope we shed a lot of Light. And change some lives!”

It’s no secret that Winfrey is in good graces with the royals. She was one of the celebrities in tow for her Prince Harry’s wedding to Meghan Markle last year.
