Prince Harry Teams with Oprah Winfrey for Mental Health Series
Prince Harry and Oprah Winfrey are co-creating a TV series on Mental Health for Apple.
Harry posted a statement on Instagram early Wednesday, to announce the partnership
“I truly believe that good mental health — mental fitness — is the key to powerful leadership, productive communities and a purpose-driven self,” Harry, 34, said in an announcement on the new @sussexroyal Instagram page.
“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,” Harry added. “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.”
The 65-year-old TV mogul, responded, “Delighted to be partnering with you. Hope we shed a lot of light. And change some lives!”
Oprah was a guest at Meghan and Harry’s wedding last May
Kensington Palace said the documentary series will build on the Duke'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".
In 2016, Prince William, Kate Middleton and Prince Harry announce Heads Together mental health initiative.

My view: Finally Oprah got the interview she has been waiting for since the royal wedding, but through the mental health documentary as a cover up, good job. I think Prince Harry, William and his wife Kate did a good job with Heads Together to Eliminate Stigma around Mental Health, the three of them were powerful and nothing can beat that. There was power in their unity, but now it is a divided front. We hope they'll reunite someday. In February Oprah's best friend Gayle King shared details about Meghan Markle's baby shower on CBS after attending the lavish bash and it is Oprah Winfrey's turn to produce TV series with Harry, it is so predictable. And why is a member of the British Royal family producing a show for an American TV platform?, just asking?
