Prince Harry and Oprah Winfrey will reunite again this Friday to revisit their Apple TV+ documentary about mental health with a virtual follow-up discussion one week later.
This Friday’s follow-up, described as a ‘virtual town hall conversation’, will reunite health experts and celebrities, athletes and others who spoke about their struggles with depression, schizophrenia and anxiety in the series.
The latest episode comes a week after Prince Harry accused the Royal Family of “total neglect” and that he turned to drink and drugs as an adult following the death of his mother Princess Diana.
Their first series, The Me You Can’t See was launched last week, hosted by Oprah and the Duke of Sussex. The pair will now revisit the documentary with a follow-up show entitled The Me You Can’t See: A Path Forward.
Apple TV+ said the original documentary had sparked more than a 40% increase in average weekend viewership in the UK after it was released on Friday. It was also widely watched in Canada, Australia, Germany and Brazil.
Harry criticised his family, accusing them of ‘total neglect’ when his wife Meghan was feeling suicidal amid harassment on social media.
‘The Me You Can’t See’ project marked Harry’s first foray into television production since he and Meghan, formally known as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, quit their royal duties and moved to California last year.
“My father used to say to me when I was younger, he used to say to both William and I, ‘Well it was like that for me so it’s going to be like that for you’,” he said.
“That doesn’t make sense. Just because you suffered doesn’t mean that your kids have to suffer, in fact, quite the opposite – if you suffered, do everything you can to make sure that whatever negative experiences you had, that you can make it right for your kids.”
Harry claimed that it was only him and their unborn child that kept Meghan going, after she told him about her suicidal thoughts and the practicalities of how she was going to end her life.
The documentary series includes appearances from Lady Gaga, NBA players DeMar DeRozan and Langston Galloway, boxer Virginia “Ginny” Fuchs and celebrity chef Rashad Armstead.
