Oprah Teams Up With Prince Harry for Apple TV Series About Mental Health
Oprah Winfrey is about to partner with Prince Harry, the Duke of Sussex.
On Wednesday, the unlikely co-producers announced their joint venture for a series on mental health for Apple TV.
According to a statement from Kensington Palace, the series aims to have “honest conversation about the challenges each of us faces,” as well as to give people “the tools to not simply survive, but to thrive.”
The announcement came via social media on Prince Harry and wife Meghan Markle’s newly-formed Instagram account.
“This commitment builds on The Duke of Sussex’s long-standing work on issues and initiatives regarding mental health, where he has candidly shared personal experience and advocated for those who silently suffer, empowering them to get the help and support they deserve,” the announcement read.
Oprah said the series came out of a conversation with Prince Harry, where she asked him about the most important issues facing the world right now.
In an appearance on CBS This Morning, she said that she had a series of secret meetings with him about the project.
“Our hope is that it will have an impact on reducing the stigma and allowing people to know that they are not alone, allowing people to speak up about it and being able to identify it for themselves and in their friends,” Winfrey said.
