Prince Harry’s Apple TV+ series with Oprah Winfrey was first announced in 2019 and has been highly anticipated by fans since then — and it’s no surprise why. The Duke of Sussex and the media mogul partnered to create a documentary series that is all about mental health. Though the series was supposed to be released last year the collaboration has once again been unfortunately delayed until (hopefully) spring 2021. Here’s what we know about the series so far.

Harry announced the Apple TV+ series with Oprah in April 2019 on the Duke and Duchess’ Sussex Royal Instagram, account writing, “We are excited to announce The Duke of Sussex and Oprah Winfrey are partners, co-creators and executive producers on their forthcoming mental health series launching on Apple in 2020.” Additionally, the account shared that the two co-creators hope that their work will, inspire viewers, “to have an honest conversation about the challenges each of us faces, and how to equip ourselves with the tools to not simply survive, but to thrive.”

In the statement, Harry is quoted as saying, “I truly believe that good mental health – mental fitness – is the key to powerful leadership, productive communities and a purpose-driven self. It is a huge responsibility to get this right as we bring you the facts, the science and the awareness of a subject that is so relevant during these times.”

The statement added that Winfrey and Harry have been “developing the series for several months and are looking forward to sharing such an important project on this global platform.” Mental health is an issue Harry and Meghan have both passionately advocated and done charitable work for in the past and we have a feeling that this multi-part series will be nothing short of extraordinary.

Although no official statement has been made, according to The Sun Harry and Oprah’s show is not expected to release until at least March 2021 due to multiple factors such as COVID-19 restrictions, Megxit, and the couple’s subsequent move to the US — which slowed down the production.

For now, Harry and Meghan are continuing to advocate for “compassion” through their work with their non-profit organization, Archewell.

20 must-read health books
The Health section of your local bookstore or online book retailer looks different than it did a couple of decades ago, when titles like Food-Free at Last: How I Learned to Eat Air or The South Beach Diet Supercharged were popular picks. Still today, authors—including would-be physicians, B-list celebs and underqualified fitness experts—dole out “health advice,” trying to convince readers that running themselves ragged with dieting and strenuous exercise will make them thinner, prettier, and happier. In fact, it has had an adverse effect, especially on women. The cruel dieting culture, incessant calorie counting, and little to no representation of health experts from diverse communities, along with the unrealistic standards set by the beauty and fashion industries, have led to eating disorders and severe mental health issues. Today, coupled with wellness, the topics covered in health and well-being books focus more on making healthy choices daily, keeping active, practising self-care, and being mindful of our mental health. Thanks to the body positivity movement, and some notable influencers in this space, we know that healthy bodies come in all shapes and sizes. This is also a time when we are hearing from more underrepresented voices in this space, making health advice and wellness tips more inclusive and relevant for all. Start the new year off with motivation, stories, and advice on how to live a healthier, happier life that works for you. Get moving by adding these 20 must-read health books to your cart.
