Netflix has revealed that the Duke of Sussex’s documentary Heart Of Invictus will be available for viewing on August 30.
Despite initial fears that the project might be shelved due to the Sussexes’ string of poor luck, it will now be released in time for next month’s Invictus Games, which begin on September 9 in Düsseldorf, Germany.
The Sussexes’ multi-million-pound deal with Netflix includes Harry serving as executive producer on the show, which is part of the Sussexes’ most successful release to date, last year’s explosive documentary series Harry & Meghan.
The pair told the narrative of their romance and their experiences as working royals in the UK in the six-part documentary aired in December before they sensationally departed in 2020 and went to California.
Meanwhile, the couple’s other lucrative media deal with Spotify was abruptly terminated in June after only one season of Meghan’s podcast Archetypes.
On Wednesday, Netflix released the first trailer for the limited series Heart Of Invictus, which was shot during the final games in the Netherlands as a camera team followed Harry and Meghan around.
In the trailer, Harry addresses 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.”
Netflix 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.”
Fans are eager and excited to watch the documentary.
