In a statement, Harry, who is patron of the Invictus Games Foundation, said: "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.

"This series will give communities around the world a window into the moving and uplifting stories of these competitors on their path to the Netherlands next year.

"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."

The Duke, 36, will appear on camera and serve as Executive Producer on the series, alongside the Oscar-winning team of director Orlando von Einsiedel and producer Joanna Natasegara.
