The pair will lead the mental health series, "The Me You Can't See," which premiered on May 21st on AppleTV+. In a trailer for the series Prince Harry said, "All over the world, people are in some kind of mental, psychological, emotional pain. Being able to say, 'This is what happened what happened to me,' is crucial.'"

In the first episode of the five-part series, the Duke of Sussex opened up about Princess Diana's tragic death, his subsequent fear of the paparazzi, and his personal therapy journey (via Independent).

That's what people are missing."
