The series, titled ‘The me you can’t see’, is about mental health and sees Harry, other celebrities and people from different walks of life sharing their experiences and discussing the stigma around him. The Duke of Sussex once again used his platform to speak ‘his truth’ and describe what it was like to be a member of the Royal Family. In episode five, Harry was asked if he still felt controlled by the media since his bombshell interview earlier this year.
Pod Save the Queen is hosted by Ann Gripper and features Daily Mirror Royal Editor Russell Myers.
Ms Gripper said, “I think there is a slight challenge because it’s on Apple TV +.
“I mean, I don’t know if I know someone who has Apple TV +, so how are people going to watch this or how many people are going to watch this?”
“And if people don’t watch it, they will inevitably see it through the lens of the cover of these stories because people like you and I will make a point of trying to watch it.”

CBS released several snippets ahead of the current program that set the world on fire and made headlines “all over the world”.
He recalled how people online were discussing these clips and making up their minds about the interview even before seeing the full two hours.
Likewise, Harry may find that people watch the trailer for his Apple TV + series and draw conclusions because they are unable to watch the entire film.
In episode five, Harry and Oprah discussed their interview, which aired in March on CBS in the US and ITV in the UK.
Harry said: “The interview was about being real, being genuine and hopefully sharing an experience that we know is incredibly relatable to a lot of people around the world, despite our unique position and privileged.
“I like to think that we were able to speak the truth in the most compassionate way possible, thus leaving an opening for reconciliation and healing.”
Despite those intentions, however, the royals were said to have been genuinely hurt by the comments and that they had driven an even bigger wedge between them.
While Harry, William and Charles got to talk a bit at Prince Philip’s funeral, the Duke of Sussex then rushed to the United States to be with his pregnant wife Meghan Markle.
In ‘The Me You Can’t See’ Harry also claimed that the media and The Firm worked together against Meghan which contributed to her mental health issues.
He said: “Before the interview, because of their headlines and the combined efforts of The Firm and the media to get her dirty, I was woken up in the middle of the night by her crying in her pillow because she does not want to wake up. me because I already wear too much. It is heartbreaking.
He went on to say that the therapy is what has helped them and that is why they are “here now”.
The Duke added that moving to Los Angeles was “scary” but he didn’t regret it because his mental health is so much better now.
“The Me You Can’t See” is available to stream on Apple TV +.
