Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's Netflix project has finally been revealed as an Invictus Games documentary.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex signed the deal, worth a whopping £112million with the US company last year shortly after stepping back from the Royal Family.

Prince Harry is set to be an executive producer for the show, as well as appearing on camera, and he has revealed how excited he is to be in the new project.

He said in a statement: "Since the very first Invictus Games back in 2014, we knew that each competitor would contribute in their own exceptional way to a mosaic of resilience, determination, and resolve."

Harry also hinted there was much more to come from the partnership, as he added: "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 and Meghan's Archewell productions will be working with Orlando von Einsiedel and producer Joanna Natasegara, as the much-anticipated documentary will follow both athletes and organisers for the Games as they prepare for the next event at the Hague.

The event had been expected to take place back in 2020 but the pandemic has delayed it until next year.

Harry and Meghan's announcement comes only weeks after they hired an Oscar-nominated producer to lead their multi-million dollar deals with both Netflix and Spotify.

Ben Browning, the former production president of FilmNation, reportedly sat down for a series of meetings with the couple before deciding to work with them.

In a statement to Forbes, he said: "From the moment they shared their vision for Archewell as a global production company that will spotlight diverse voices and share uplifting stories, I knew I wanted to help with this unique opportunity.

"It’s a thrilling company to be starting."

As well as their multi-million deal with Netflix, Harry and Meghan have also signed a £30million deal with Spotify, which comes after Harry claimed he had to sign the deals after being cut off financially by his family.

He told Oprah during his and Meghan's bombshell interview which aired on CBS last month: "We didn't have a plan.

"That was suggested by somebody else by the point of where my family literally cut me off financially, and I had to afford security for us."

The release date for the documentary is yet to be confirmed by Netflix.
