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

“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.

“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.”

Harry first introduced Meghan officially as his girlfriend during the 2017 games.

Dominic Reid, chief executive of the Invictus Games Foundation, added: “We’re very excited about the opportunity to shine the global spotlight of Netflix on the men and women that we work with, in order to ensure that even more people can be inspired by their determination and fortitude in working towards their recovery.

“This partnership will also bring in significant funding to the charity. We are extremely grateful to our Founding Patron for his continued efforts to support the military community, and for making this partnership happen.”

Harry helped set up the games after seeing first hand how sport can help people suffering from injury and illness both physically and psychologically on a trip to the US in 2013.

He was a guest at the Warrior Games and decided to come up with an event of his own.

Ted Sarandos, co-CEO and chief content officer of Netflix, said: “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.”
