Prince Harry will be returning to the UK later this year with a Netflix crew in tow as he films with a crew for his upcoming documentary.


Prince Harry will be traveling back to the UK with a Netflix production crew to film footage for his upcoming documentary about the Invictus Games.

It is thought that he will stay in Nottinghamshire to lead preparations for the sporting events and will also stop to see his grandmother, the Queen, while he's back in the UK.

The last time that the Prince was in the UK was for a brief visit to Princess Diana's statue unveiling. Owing to the pandemic he spent much of his visit in isolation as, at the time, the UK government required an isolation period after travelling to the UK from the US.

Prince Harry returned to the US to support Meghan Markle after a family death soon after the statue was unveiled and hasn't been back to the UK since.

It is speculated that when the Prince visits the UK later in the year with the Netlfix crew, he will leave his wife Meghan Markle and their two children, Archie and Lilibet at home.

A source told the Express, “The Duke of Sussex will want to make sure we are ready as the last games were canceled because of Covid.

“We are hoping that the situation in April next year allows the games to go ahead as planned, in Holland. Our understanding is that the Duke of Sussex will be accompanied by a small film crew in order to allow the public to see the hard work involved in planning these games.”

The Invictus Games is a sporting event that was created by Prince Harry. The international competition is for wounded, injured, and sick servicemen and women who are either still serving or veterans.

The event was Prince Harry's brainchild who wanted to create a competition much like the American Warrior Games, a US sporting event for veterans with physical and mental disabilities.

Prince Harry, the founder of the Invictus Games and Invictus Games Foundation, opened up about the upcoming documentary series on his website, Archewell.

"Since the very first Invictus Games back in 2014, we knew that each competitor would contribute in their own exceptional way to a mosaic of resilience, determination, and resolve."

"This series will give communities around the world a window into the moving and uplifting stories of these competitors on their path to the Netherlands next year."

"As Archewell Productions’ first series with Netflix, in partnership with the Invictus Games Foundation, I couldn’t be more excited for the journey ahead or prouder of the Invictus community for continuously inspiring global healing, human potential and continued service,” said Prince Harry.

The docu-series will share powerful stories from the competitors about their journeys to compete in the Invictus Games 2020.

Due to the pandemic, the Invictus Games will now take place in Spring 2022, but a date has yet to be confirmed.
