Harry and Meghan have appeared in a trailer for the duke of Sussex's new mental health series which he has made with interviewer-turned-business partner Oprah Winfrey.

The couple feature in the emotionally charged first-look promo for the Duke of Sussex's new mental health series The Me You Can't See.

Speaking to the Armchair Expert podcast, he said he wanted to "break the cycle" of "genetic pain and suffering" for his own children.

Of his father, Prince Charles, he said: "He's treated me the way he was treated, so how can I change that for my own kids?"

Also featured in the trailer is a Syrian refugee named Fawzi and DeMar DeRozan of the NBA's San Antonio Spurs, who also contribute to the show.

Harry and Oprah are also shown chatting in the clip, in what appears to be a frank and honest discussion about mental health.

Winfrey says: "All over the world people are in some kind of mental, psychological, emotional pain."

Harry asks: "What words have you heard around mental health? Crazy?"

Winfrey replies: "Lost it. Can't keep it together… It's that stigma of being labelled 'the other'."

Harry adds in the footage: "The results of this year will be felt for decades. The kids, families, husbands, wives, everybody."

According to the Sussex's Archewell website, Oprah and Harry want to have "honest discussions about mental health and emotional wellbeing while opening up about their personal journeys and struggles."

Oprah interviewed Harry and Meghan earlier in the year, where they made a number of accusations about the royal family, including claiming an as yet unnamed family member was concerned about the colour of son Archie's skin ahead of his birth.

Meghan also admitted that she had sought help when she was suicidal, adding the monarchy gave her no support.

During the fallout of the interview, outspoken broadcaster Piers Morgan said that he did not believe Meghan's claims, including her admission about being suicidal, leading to him leaving his presenting job on ITV's Good Morning Britain.
