'What did you say?!' Prince Harry baffles Oprah Winfrey as she discusses project with Duke

The US chat show host said she was telling Prince Harry about the project when he offered to help with it. Oprah Winfrey exclaimed at the offer of help from the Duke of Sussex. Harry will open up about his “mental health journeys and struggles” in his long-awaited series.

Speaking to the Ellen Show, Oprah said: “He is just fantastic.

“From the very first moment, we had a conversation about what were the two most important issues in the world. I asked him and he said, climate change and mental health.

“I started telling him about the series I was working on.

“As I turned to walk away he said, ‘well if you ever need any help with that series’. I said, what did you just say? Do I need any help?'”

Harry suffered the trauma of losing his mother aged just 12 and has spoken about spending nearly two decades “not thinking” about her death before eventually getting help after a period of “total chaos”.

In a statement to mark the launch of the series, The Me You Can’t See, the duke said: “We are born into different lives, brought up in different environments, and as a result are exposed to different experiences.

“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.”

Harry and Ms Winfrey are co-creators and executive producers of the project for Apple, which a few years ago launched into the TV streaming market to take on Netflix and Amazon, and will premiere on May 21 on Apple TV+.

Apple has said the series will see the duke and the chatshow queen “guide honest discussions about mental health and emotional well-being while opening up about their mental health journeys and struggles”.

Pop superstar Lady Gaga and actress Glenn Close will be featured in the documentaries with Gaga having already appeared in a video with Harry’s brother the Duke of Cambridge talking about combating the stigma around mental health.

The documentary series will focus on mental illness and mental wellness and aims to inspire viewers to have an honest conversation about the challenges people face and how to equip themselves with the tools to thrive.

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

“Our series aims to spark that global conversation.”

Harry and Meghan made a series of allegations about the royal family when they were interviewed by Ms Winfrey earlier his year.
