Netflix has announced its first series with Britain's Prince Harry and his wife Meghan.

The streaming giant is going to release a programme called 'Heart of Invictus,' which will follow a group of former servicemen and women who have entered the Invictus Games The Hague competition.

It is being produced in partnership with Archewell Productions, a production company set up by the duke and duchess of Sussex after they stepped back from their positions as senior royals in the British royal family last year.

The Invictus Games The Hague, which is taking place in The Netherlands, was due to be held in 2020, however it was postponed to 2022 as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

The series will be directed by Orlando von Einsiedel and produced by Joanna Natasegara, who previously won an Oscar for their documentary 'The White Helmets.'

Founded by Prince Harry

The Invictus Games was founded by Prince Harry in 2014 as a way to help injured servicemen and women by supporting their rehabilitation and giving them a new lease of life through sport post-conflict.

"This series will give communities around the world a window into the moving and uplifting stories of these competitors on their path to the Netherlands next year," Prince Harry said in a statement. 

"As Archewell Productions' first series with Netflix, in partnership with the Invictus Games Foundation, I couldn't be more excited for the journey ahead or prouder of the Invictus community for continuously inspiring global healing, human potential and continued service."
