The announcement read: “Prince Harry has been a champion of the Invictus Games since its inception so it’s fitting that Archewell’s first Netflix series will spotlight and celebrate the competition’s amazing athletes.”

Orlando von Einsiedel is set to direct the show and it will be produced by Joanna Natasegara.

As well as appearing on screen, Prince Harry will also serve as an executive producer.

The 36-year-old set up the games back in 2014. It allows members of the armed forces from across the globe to compare in various sporting events, many of which have suffered life-changing illnesses and injuries.

Last year, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex signed a deal with the streaming platform which is believed to be worth millions of pounds.

They also reportedly signed a contract with Spotify.

The reason behind the big deals is because the couple was ‘cut off financially’ by the Royal Family when they stepped back from their senior roles and moved to America last year.

In the explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey, Prince Harry explained: “We didn’t have a plan.

“[The Netflix deal] was suggested by somebody else by the point of where my family literally cut me off financially. I had to afford security for us.

“But I’ve got what my mum left me, and, without that, we would not have been able to do this.”
