The Duke of Sussex has some exciting news to look forward to

Prince Harry’s big celebration this summer

Recently, Prince Harry had to deal with the strain of making the long trip to London to testify in his court case against Mirror Group Newspapers.

However, according to Newsweek, some good news for the royal was confirmed on Wednesday.

Heart of Invictus, a passion project for the Prince, was rumored to have been canceled by Netflix, but the streaming service assured the publication that nothing had changed since the show’s announcement in January.

Representatives for Netflix reportedly told Newsweek on June 14 that the information in the January announcement was still “correct” and “accurate.”

The idea of the Harry-fronted program is to follow some of the competitors at the 2022 Invictus Games, which the Prince established in 2014 to allow injured and ill former service members to compete.

The Netherlands was supposed to host the 2022 Invictus Games in 2020, but the pandemic forced a two-year postponement.

When the Invictus Games were first announced in 2014, Prince Harry said in a statement: “We knew that each competitor would contribute in their own exceptional way to a mosaic of resilience, determination, and resolve.

“This series will open a window into the inspiring and moving tales of these competitors as they make their way to the Netherlands next year.

I couldn’t be more thrilled for the journey ahead or prouder of the Invictus community for consistently inspiring global healing, human potential, and ongoing service as this is Archewell Productions’ first Netflix series in partnership with The Invictus Games Foundation.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex and the Archewell Productions team are developing an ambitious slate that reflects the values and causes they care deeply about, according to Ted Sarandos, who was then Netflix’s chief content officer.

“I could not be happier that their first series for Netflix will showcase that for the world in a way never seen before. It has been clear to me since the first time I met them that the Invictus Games hold a very special place in their hearts.”

“HEART OF INVICTUS (Summer 2023),” read the tweet from Netflix U.K. that listed their 2023 schedule. On their journey to competing at the Invictus Games, a group of extraordinary athletes from all over the world who have all experienced life-altering injuries or illnesses are followed in this new series from Archewell Productions.

With the first episode of the documentary series about Prince Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle, being viewed for more than 81.55 million hours in its initial release week alone, it quickly rose to the top of Netflix’s list of all-time most watched documentaries.

When the highly anticipated program debuted on the streaming service on December 8, it dropped some major bombshells. The fact that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex met on Instagram may have been one of the documentary’s most unexpected (and incredibly relatable) revelations.

The Prince noticed the former actress in a photo on a friend’s timeline. “I was just scrolling through my feed when I saw a video of the two of them that a friend had posted; it was similar to a Snapchat, and that was the first thing. “I was wondering, ‘Who is that?'” remarked Harry.
