The next project from Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan is heading to Netflix. On Wednesday, August 16, Netflix announced the premiere date of the Heart of Invictus series.
The Invictus Games is a "international adaptive sports competition for injured, sick and wounded service personnel and veterans," that was founded by Prince Harry in 2014. It's been a passion project of his and one that he has remained dedicated to, even after stepping back from being a working royal.
As part of the couple's contract with Netflix, they helped to create the docuseries, Heart of Invictus, which follows competitors of the Invictus Games as they get ready to compete. The series follows competitors who were originally supposed to compete in the 2020 Invictus Games. Of course, with the pandemic delaying things, the games was moved to April of 2022, which allowed the series to follow these competitors as they prepared for the games.
According to People Magazine, the official premiere date for the docuseries is actually this month! That's right, Heart of Invictus is set to premiere in August 2023, specifically on the 30th.
