Harry is the executive producer of the documentary, and his official statement captures the emotional attachment to the sporting event.

“Our Invictus Games community represents some of the bravest and most dedicated individuals from 23 nations across the globe," the Duke of Sussex said. "Heart of Invictus is the incredible story of competitors brought together through service, who are now united through sport."

"While in various stages of recovery from both visible and invisible injuries, these competitors and their loved ones give a compelling look at their journey to the Invictus Games, in a way that commands admiration and respect," he concluded.

Even though Harry and Netflix's team were excited about adding the show to their library, some people wondered if it was shelved similar to Meghan's kids' telecast, Pearl.

"Has Netflix canceled Harry's Invictus Games?" Angela Levin shared on Twitter back in June. Despite the royal commentator's suspicions, Heart of Invictus will air on Wednesday, August 30.

When Meghan and Harry began their relationship with Netflix, Heart of Invictus was the first program they developed, and it is now their third Archewell program to be released.

"[They] are building an ambitious slate that reflects the values and causes they hold dear," Netflix’s chief content officer, Ted Sarandos, said in a statement. "From the moment I met them, it’s been clear that the Invictus Games hold a very special place in their hearts, and I couldn’t be happier that their first series for Netflix will showcase that for the world in a way never seen before."

Harry said the doc "will give communities around the world a window into the moving and uplifting stories of these competitors on their path to the Netherlands."
