Harry says he hopes the series shows "there is power in vulnerability".

"We are born into different lives, brought up in different environments, and as a result are exposed to different experiences," he said.

"But our shared experience is that we are all human.

"The majority of us carry some form of unresolved trauma, loss, or grief, which feels — and is — very personal.

"Yet the last year has shown us that we are all in this together and my hope is that this series will show there is power in vulnerability, connection in empathy and strength in honesty."

The Duke of Sussex created the show with Oprah Winfrey, who conducted a bombshell interview with Harry and Meghan earlier this year.

A statement about the series revealed the pair will "guide honest discussions about mental health and emotional wellbeing" while also speaking about "their own mental health journeys and struggles".

The show will also feature 14 experts and organisations to "shed light on different pathways to treatment". 

"Now more than ever, there is an immediate need to replace the shame surrounding mental health with wisdom, compassion and honesty," Oprah said.

"Our series aims to spark that global conversation."

The show will feature big names including Lady Gaga, Glenn Close, NBA star DeMar DeRozan, Olympic boxer Virginia Fuchs and more who will share their own experiences with Harry.

Oprah spoke to CBS about the series, saying, "I asked [Prince Harry] the question, 'What do you think are the most important issues facing the world right now?' and he said there are two.

"He said climate change and mental wellness, mental fitness and mental health. As you know, he’s spoken about his own issues and what he went through after his mother died and how being able to talk about it has benefited him.

"So it’s a passion of his and, at the end of the conversation, I said, 'Oh, I’m going to be doing this thing with Apple'.

"'It’s a big concern of mine too and I want to try to erase the stigma,’ and he said at the end of the conversation, 'If there’s anything I can do to help'."
