What to expect from Prince Harry and Oprah Winfrey’s series

The upcoming series was previously pushed back due to the pandemic.

Meanwhile, Harry co-created and executive produced the show alongside the star.

Speaking about the project, the Duke shared: “We are born into different lives, brought up in different environments, and as a result are exposed to different experiences.

The majority of us carry some form of unresolved trauma, loss, or grief

“But our shared experience is that we are all human.

“The majority of us carry some form of unresolved trauma, loss, or grief, which feels – and is – very personal.”

In addition, he said: “Yet the last year has shown us that we are all in this together and my hope is that this series will show there is power in vulnerability, connection in empathy and strength in honesty.”
