The official trailer for Prince Harry and Oprah Winfrey‘s mental health series has been released ahead of its premiere on Friday, May 21. Titled The Me You Can’t See, the Apple TV+ show is co-created and executive produced by Prince Harry alongside Winfrey and is aimed at destigmatizing mental health.
The emotional trailer sees Prince Harry and Winfrey discuss mental health, and features appearances by renowned figures who will be having their own segments in the multi-part documentary series. Meghan, Duchess of Sussex also appears in the two-and-a-half-minute trailer, as she is seen standing beside her husband Prince Harry in what appears to be their home in Montecito, California. Other participants besides Lady Gaga and Winfrey include actor Glenn Close, NBA players DeMar DeRozan and Langston Galloway, Olympic boxer Virginia “Ginny” Fuchs and chef Rashad Armstead.
“All over the world people are in some kind of mental, psychological, emotional pain,” Winfrey can be seen saying to Prince Harry in the trailer. “Being able to say, ‘This is what happened what happened to me,’ is crucial,” she adds. Prince Harry says, “To make that decision to receive help is not a sign of weakness. In today’s world, more than ever, it is a sign of strength.”
Footage of Prince Harry at his mother, Princess Diana‘s funeral is also included in the video, seeing as the series will touch on both Prince Harry and Winfrey’s “personal journeys and struggles.” According to a statement on the Sussexes’ Archewell website, the show “aims to destigmatize a highly misunderstood subject and give hope to viewers who learn that they are not alone.”
