Heartbreaking footage from Princess Diana’s funeral has been featured in the trailer for Prince Harry and Oprah Winfrey’s new mental health series.

Prince Harry, 36, and Oprah, 67, speak candidly about mental health in the upcoming docu-series, The Me You Can't See, which will premiere on Apple TV+ on Friday 21 May.

In the trailer, a young Harry is seen with his head bowed and looking close to tears next to his dad Prince Charles while the funeral procession with his mother’s coffin passes.

The Duke of Sussex was just 12 years old when his mother was tragically killed in a car accident in Paris in 1997.


Harry has been very open about his own mental health difficulties in the past following his mother’s tragic passing.

Speaking in the clip, the Duke explains the importance of speaking out about mental health.

He said: “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.”

Elsewhere in the trailer, the Prince’s wife Meghan Markle is spotted leaning over him while wearing a T-shirt with the words “raising the future” printed on the front.

The couple’s two year old son Archie also appears in the trailer. He can be seen sitting on his 39 year old mother Meghan’s lap in footage from his first birthday.

Harry and Oprah’s Apple TV+ series features a number of contributors including singer Lady Gaga and Syrian refugee Fawzi.


Prince Harry previously discussed how losing his mother Princess Diana “left a huge hole” inside him in a foreword for the book Hospital by the Hill, released earlier this year.

In the touching note, he addressed those who have lost parents in the pandemic as Harry wrote: “I know how you feel, and I want to assure you that over time that hole will be filled with so much love and support.”

He added that he was told when a parent dies “their spirit, their love and the memories of them do not.” Harry then wrote: “They are always with you and you can hold onto them forever.”

The trailer’s release comes after Harry said he quit Royal life because of his mum Princess Diana.

Speaking to Dax Shepard in his Armchair Expert podcast, the Duke was asked if he struggled with comforting people in the Commonwealth following his mother’s death.

He revealed: “It's the job, right? Grin and bear it. Get on with it. I was in my early twenties, and I was thinking I don't want this job, I don't want to be here.

“I don't want to be doing this. Look what it did to my mum, how am I ever going to settle down and have a wife and family when I know it's going to happen again.”
