"To make that decision to receive help is not a sign of weakness," he says. "In today's world more than ever, it is a sign of strength."

The archival footage of Charles leaning down to Harry at Diana's funeral is seen with a voiceover saying, "Treating people with dignity is the first act."

Harry asks Oprah, "What words have you heard around mental health? Crazy?" 

She responds, "Lost it, can't keep it together."

Speaking of the Covid-19 pandemic, he adds, "The results of this year will be felt for decades, the kids, the families, husbands, wives, everybody."

The series features contributions from singer Lady Gaga, Syrian refugee Fawzi, and DeMar DeRozan of the NBA's San Antonio Spurs.

The trailer's release comes following Harry's bombshell interview with Dax Shepard on the Armchair Expert podcast.

He told Dax he felt his life was "a mixture between The Truman Show and being in a zoo".

The Duke also revealed he wanted to leave the royal family 15 years before he did as he was worried over what it "did to my mum".

When asked about his trips around the Commonwealth, Harry responded, "It’s the job right? Grin and bear it, get on with it.

"In my early 20s, it was a case of, I don’t want this job. I don’t want to be here, I don’t want to be doing this, look what it did to my mum.

"How am I ever going to settle down, have a wife and a family when I know, that it’s going to happen again?

"Because I know, I’ve seen behind the curtain. I’ve seen the business model, I know how the operation runs and how it works, and I don’t want to be a part of this."

Harry also added that he was told "you need help" while growing up, but rejected it, saying, "There is nothing wrong with me."

Speaking of his father, and seemingly the Queen and Prince Philip, Harry said he left the UK in order to "break the cycle" of "genetic" pain for his children.

"There’s no blame, I don’t think we should be pointing the finger or blaming anybody," he said.

"But certainly when it comes to parenting, if I have experienced some form of pain or suffering because of the pain or suffering perhaps my father or my parents suffered, I’m gonna make sure that I break that cycle so that I don’t pass it on, basically.

"There is a lot of genetic pain and suffering that gets passed on anyway. As parents we should be doing the most that we can to say, 'You know what, that happened to me, I’m gonna make sure that’s not going to happen to you'."
