Prince Harry's new Netflix series Heart of Invictus trailer released

The first look at Prince Harry's new Netflix series has drawn praise, with some saying it shows the Prince "truly is his mother's son".

The trailer for Heart of Invictus teases a five-part series focused on the competitors of the international sporting event The Invictus Games for wounded, injured or sick veterans.

Prince Harry founded the games in 2014.

The series will follow the athletes as they prepare for competition in the 2020 games, which ultimately ended up being postponed until 2022 amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

"Looking forward to watching this incredible show! The Legacy of Lady Diane's love continues through her son. Prince Harry Introduces the World to Inspiring Veteran Athletes," said one trailer viewer on Twitter.

"Looks like it will be a great watch. Look forward to watching the journey," another said.

"Just watching the trailer has me emotional. What an incredible group of people," another wrote.

Heart of Invictus launches August 30.

Harry and Meghan's first documentary series racked up more viewing time on Netflix than any other documentary during its first week, the streaming company said following its launch in December.

The first three episodes of Harry & Meghan reportedly recorded 81.55 million viewing hours after its debut, meaning more than 28 million households watched at least part of the series.
