Harry looks back on his time in the military in his doc.

During the premiere episode, Harry chatted with former Invictus Games participants David Wiseman and J.J. Chalmers.

"When I was a soldier, that meant the world to me. And then once I was wounded, how do you define yourself then?" Wiseman said.

"Invictus was the best week of my life, and that lives on stronger than ever," Chalmers added. "To feel like a rockstar for that week, to have the red carpet rolled out for us, that's what you did, isn't it?"
