Heart of Invictus: Prince Harry stars in Netflix trailer
Meghan has come to the rescue at Netflix after Prince Harry’s first solo show – his documentary series Heart of Invictus – failed to make the streaming giant’s top ten in either Britain or America.
Her old TV legal drama Suits, recently acquired by Netflix, has landed top spot on the US streaming top ten for the seventh week in a row, Hollywood trade magazine Variety revealed yesterday.
Suits, in which Meghan played hot shot attorney Rachel Zane for seven years before marrying Harry in 2018, is attracting a huge new audience and was watched for 3.2 billion minutes in its latest week monitored by ratings agency Nielsen.
In stark contrast, Newsweek magazine claims Harry’s five-part passion project Heart of Invictus has “flopped with audiences, failing to break into the Netflix top ten streaming charts in America and Britain” since its release last Wednesday.
No actual figures for the show, which follows the inspiring stories of wounded, sick and injured veterans who competed at last year’s Invictus Games, have yet been released.
Harry has been blasted for taking fresh swipes at the Royal Family in the docuseries, including his claim that no-one helped him as his life “unraveled” after returning from active service in Afghanistan.
Newsweek magazine says the lack of interest in Heart of Invictus “echoes the failure of Harry and Meghan’s second TV project titled Live to Lead.” This was released after their wildly successful, bombshell-laden series Harry and Meghan, but attracted little interest in the couple’s interviews with global female leaders such as Gloria Steinem, Greta Thunberg and Ruth Bader Ginsberg.
A senior Hollywood production source said: “Their mixed fortunes on Netflix should tell them what viewers do and do not want to watch – and, unfortunately, Harry’s new show falls into the latter category, no matter how worthy and admirable the subject matter might be.”
