Prince Harry and Oprah Winfrey Get Emotional in New Trailer for Mental Health Series
Meghan Markle also makes a cameo in a “Raising the Future” T-shirt
On Monday, the pair released the trailer promoting The Me You Can't See, which premieres on Apple TV+ on May 21.
"All over the world people are in some kind of mental, psychological, emotional pain," Oprah says as she sits opposite Harry discussing mental health. "Being able to say, 'This is what happened what happened to me,' is crucial," she adds.
Harry — who has spoken of his own challenges, especially in the wake of the death of his mother Princess Diana in 1997 — 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."
Poignantly, as the then 12-year-old Harry is shown alongside his father Prince Charles solemnly standing to attention as his mother's casket passes on the day of the funeral, a voiceover says, "Treating people with dignity is the first act."
Meghan Markle — in a "Raising the Future" T-shirt — also makes a cameo in the trailer, smiling and looking over Harry's shoulder as he works at his laptop.
"The results of this year will be felt for decades," adds Harry as a photo of Meghan reading to their son Archie is shown. "By kids, families, husbands, wives – everybody."
Glimpses of the series' interviewees, from Glenn Close to Lady Gaga, are also unveiled. "I don't tell this story for my own self-service. I've been through it and people need help," Lady Gaga, who is identified by her given name, Stefani, says in the clip.
