Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have finally announced details of their first Netflix show...

And it's going to be something that's very close to Harry's heart.

Read on for the details...

Now, since marrying former actress, Meghan Markle, in 2018, Prince Harry has been thrown into the spotlight in ways he never imagined...

Getty

Along with Meghan, of course.

The pair have since formally stepped down from their positions within the royal family...

Getty

And they are currently residing in Los Angeles where they're raising their son, Archie, and expecting their second child.

But they recently decided to speak out about their terrible experiences with the royal family and British press in the last few years...

Getty

To none other than Oprah Winfrey.

It's the interview that everyone has been talking about.

Getty

Their 2-hour-long interview aired on CBS on Sunday, March 7th and viewers watched on in shock as some mind-blowing allegations were made against the monarchy.

For example...

It was claimed that senior members of the family had refused to get Meghan professional help when she was experiencing suicidal thoughts during her pregnancy with Archie.

Meghan also addressed that incident with her sister-in-law, the Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton.

Headlines were made in 2018 when Meghan allegedly "made Kate cry" in a row about bridesmaids' dresses in the days before her and Harry's wedding - well, in her chat with Oprah, Meghan claimed that Kate was the one to make her cry.

Though she did stress that Kate had apologized and that she had "forgiven her."

She also addressed the ongoing issues of racism within the monarchy.

Meghan claimed an unnamed senior member of the Royal family raised "concerns" about how dark Archie's skin would be before his birth.

"In those months when I was pregnant, all around this same time, so we have in tandem the conversation of, 'you won't be given security, not gonna be given a title' and also concerns and conversations about how dark his skin might be when he's born."

Harry then explained that he "had to get out," though when he did he was "cut off financially" when he and Meghan needed help the most...

Getty

He also added that they've since been relying on his inheritance from Princess Diana.

"I was totally cut off financially. My family cut me off – if I didn't have what my mom left me, we wouldn't have been able to do this."

"All I wanted to do was keep my family safe."

Getty

Meghan then insisted that they never had any plans at first to quit the U.K - she said the intention was to "do this forever" and that she told the royal family to "use me as much as you like."

Later in the interview, Oprah asked how the prince thinks the late Princess Diana would have felt about the rifts that drove them to step back from the royal family.

Getty

"I think she would feel very angry with how this has panned out, and very sad," Harry said, "But ultimately, all she'd ever want is for us to be happy."

Quite predictably, opinion was well and truly divided over the interview...

With a vast majority feeling sympathetic for Harry and Meghan over what they've allegedly endured in the last few years.

But on the other hand...

People have been slamming the pair for agreeing to take part in Oprah's interview and have even been brandishing them as "liars"... including Piers Morgan, of course!

It's undoubtedly caused a lot of drama...

Getty

And the couple have been the talk of the entire world in the last month since the interview aired.

But the one thing that many have been wondering is what exactly will the pair be doing to earn their own incomes?

Getty

When Harry mentioned they had been "cut off financially," many began pondering over how they'll make ends meet in the future... well, apart from the millions of dollars he's inherited from Diana, of course.

The pair will continue with their charity work and activism...

Getty

And, of course, their Netflix venture!

Last year, the news broke that the couple had signed a multi-million dollar deal with the streaming giant...

Getty

And it's all been kept rather hush-hush... until now, that is.

Netflix has today announced Harry and Meghan's first venture...

Getty

Which will be a documentary-series about the Invictus Games, made by their very own Archwell Productions company.

The Invictus Games is a staple in Harry and Meghan's relationship...

Getty

Because it was during an Invictus Games event in 2017 when Harry first introduced Meghan as his girlfriend to the British public.

Heart of Invictus will follow competitors around the world training for the Games at The Hague which had been expected to take place in 2020 but were delayed until next year due to the pandemic.

Harry, who is Patron of The Invictus Games Foundation, will appear in the show and will serve as executive producer on the series.

"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," he said.

He continued:

"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."

It's clear that Harry has high hopes for his and Meghan's Netflix deal.

Getty

​"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 of Netflix, said about the series:

Getty

"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."

We're super excited to see what Harry and Meghan will bring to Netflix!

And we're sure it'll be simply amazing.
