In April 2020, the Duke of Sussex announced a collaboration with Oprah Winfrey as co-creators and executive producers of this series. Back then, an official post from the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s official Instagram post read, ”We are excited to announce The Duke of Sussex and Oprah Winfrey are partners, co-creators and executive producers on their forthcoming mental health series.” Reportedly, the series was scheduled to release in April last year but was then delayed owing to the coronavirus outbreak.
The premiere of the docuseries comes months after Oprah’s explosive interview with Meghan Markle. The 39-year-old former actor had then mentioned that the kingdom turned into a cruel reality for her in the days that followed her wedding. Meghan not only claimed to have suicidal thoughts but also alleged that the Royals were racist and had discussions regarding her son’s skin colour prior to his birth.
