The last time that Oprah Winfrey and Prince Harry were involved in a project together it can be said that their creation took the world by storm. Now, the duo is looking to find similar levels of success, but for a much better cause. One that hopefully doesn’t involve tearing up Harry’s family.
Harry and Oprah are set to executive produce a multipart documentary series for Apple TV+ titled, “The Me You Can’t See.” Essentially the series will showcase different struggles that many high-profile celebs faced with mental health.
The project, of course, is meant to shed light on some of the issues that people who are facing mental health crises go through. It will also serve as a way for many fans to dive deeper into the lives of some of their favorite celebrities.
So far, stars like Lady Gaga and NBA player Demar DeRozan have already confirmed that they will be appearing on the show. They will be joined by Olympic Boxer Virginia “Ginny” Fuchs and celebrity chef Rashad Armstead, amongst other celebrities.
Mental health has certainly been a topic that Prince Harry has wanted to shed light on for years. He has even talked about some of the struggles that he went through with the death of his mother.
Is this new docuseries an opportunity for Harry to dive deeper into his feelings and what actually went on in the aftermath of Diana’s death? It has yet to be confirmed if Prince Harry will be directly sharing any type of personal story in “The Me You Can’t See”. There is a good chance that Harry will once again open up about that chapter in his life.
In the official statement that announced the release of the show which is set to start streaming on May 21, Harry spoke about some of the things that inspired the creation of the show. In fact, the COVID 19 pandemic is one of the things that inspired this creation. He mentioned,
“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.”
As was mentioned before, Oprah and Prince Harry also teamed up for another high-profile project. How is the backlash from that one coming along?
From the most recent reports, what we can gather is that Prince William is the only royal who is publicly trying to mend the rift between Harry and the family. Most people seem to think though, that both Prince Charles and the Queen are not so keen to forget and forgive. We’ll have to wait and see how things shape up in Harry’s next UK trip. Maybe, he’ll share some more inside Royal secrets in this new project that could put more strain on his relationship!
