Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have announced their first Netflix project.

The first Netflix show from Harry and Meghan’s Archewell foundation comes after the pair officially stepped down as working royals.

Harry said he is “so excited” about the docu-series, which is called Heart of Invictus, and will look at true stories of competitors in the Invictus Games.

Prince Harry, 36, told Deadline: “Since the very first Invictus Games back in 2014, we knew that each competitor would contribute in their own exceptional way to a mosaic of resilience, determination, and resolve.

“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.

“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.”

Ted Sarandos, co-CEO and chief content officer with Netflix, said: “The Duke and Duchess of Sussex and the Archewell Productions team are building an ambitious slate that reflects the values and causes they hold dear.

“From the moment I met them, it’s been clear that the Invictus Games hold a very special place in their hearts, and I couldn’t be happier that their first series for Netflix will showcase that for the world in a way never seen before.”

Royal fans welcomed the news as one person wrote on Twitter: “I’m so excited for the Sussexes! I’m looking forward to seeing all the projects of Archewell Production.”

Another said: “I've always found the Invictus Games to be such a great platform! I love that we are getting more details about them!”

And a third wrote: “Yes! This collaboration is everything. My kind of Netflix series. I absolutely can’t wait. #Archell keeping busy. We love to see it.”

The news comes weeks after Harry and Meghan’s bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey aired.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex's "tell all" Oprah Winfrey interview, which aired on 8 March, has received over 5,000 Ofcom complaints.

During the interview with the 67 year old chat show host, Meghan and Harry claimed a member of the Royal Family had "concerns" over how dark the colour of their son Archie's skin would be.

The Duchess of Sussex also said she had suicidal thoughts while being an active senior member of the family but was denied help when she asked for it.
