What Has Oprah Winfrey Been Up To Lately?
We’ve all heard her name, and some of us were probably big fans of her show. So, what is the media mogul up to lately? Last we heard, she is working on a very important project right now. Guess who is working alongside her? The Duke Of Sussex himself — Prince Harry! Both have come a long way in their individual lives. While Oprah is a living legend right now and the richest African-American in the USA, Prince Harry is about to become a father very soon.
Both are associated with a number of charitable organizations and are truly passionate about their work. Now, what brings them together on a common platform? Turns out, they are making a series on Apple TV regarding mental health. Sussexroyal – the Instagram handle of The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, posted on their account a few days back, “We are excited to announce that The Duke of Sussex and Oprah Winfrey are partners, co-creators and executive producers on their forthcoming mental health series launching on Apple in 2020.”
What Will It Be About?
The series will encourage real people to come forward, talk about their problems, and empower them with a tool that will help them to not only overcome these issues but to live better. Oprah and Prince Harry’s project aims to tell stories of human courage and power that helped these people overcome obstacles and achieve greatness in the end. The series will also raise awareness about the importance of mental health and how we should all be vigilant about it and the people around us. Together, Oprah and Prince Harry plan to change lives and enlighten people with positivity.
It must be mentioned here that both celebrities have been incredibly passionate about this issue for a long time. Harry himself faced some challenges when he lost his mother, Princess Diana, in an accident at a young age. He is thankful to his brother, Prince William, for helping him through tough times. That must have encouraged him to get involved in the field of mental health and destroy the stigma associated with it. He is also part of the organization, Heads Together, along with Prince William and Kate Middleton. It is an initiative launched in 2017 for the betterment of mental health. Oprah, on the other hand, has been through dark times during her younger days. Getting abused, being pregnant as a teen – she has experienced it all, but she overcame it by sheer grit. We can’t think of anyone better than her to give great advice to people who are going through a lot now.
Prince Harry rightly sums it up while he was in Australia giving a personal speech, “You need to know a part of being strong and tough is having the courage to ask for help when you need it. You must not silently suffer. You are all in this together and if I may speak personally we are all in this together, because asking for help was one of the best decisions that I ever made.”
We really do hope that this project will benefit numerous people who are suffering from mental health issues.
