Prince Harry is set to appear in a brand new Netflix documentary, Rising Phoenix, which will give viewers an in-depth look at the Paralympic Games.
The Duke of Sussex, who recently moved to Los Angeles with his wife Duchess Meghan and son Archie, has already teased his appearance in the feature length doco after the trailer was released this week.
Sitting on a green couch in a bright warehouse, Prince Harry tells the camera, "There isn't anything else in the world that can bring you back from the darkest places than sport."
Of course, sport and mental and physical health is something the Duke is hugely passionate about.
Having spearheaded the creation of the Invictus Games, Harry has a long history in working alongside people who have suffered debilitating injuries, empowering them to continue to achieve their goals through sports.

Harry's doco, Rising Phoenix, will feature a number of Paralympians from across the world.
According to a spokesperson for Prince Harry, the film "tells the extraordinary story of the Paralympic Games... From the rubble of World War II to the third biggest sporting event on the planet, along the way sparking a global movement which continues to change the way the world thinks about disability, diversity and human potential."

The spokesperson added that Harry was "proud to have been one of the people contributed to this film, which is a unique and powerful documentary that hopes to change the way people view disability — and tell the incredible story of the Paralympics."
The doco was originally planned for release alongside the 2020 Olympic & Paralympic Games in Tokyo, however, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the games themselves have been postponed to 2021.
The film is set for release in just over a week on August 26.

Harry and Meghan have been settling into Los Angeles life over the last few months, with the pair having just purchased a new home in Santa Barbara.
The multi-million dollar mansion was purchased by the pair on June 18 and reportedly features nine bedrooms, 16 bathrooms, tennis courts and a home gym.
Sounds like the perfect spot to be spending isolation, if you ask us!
