Royal fans have been given a first look at a new Netflix documentary series to be hosted by Meghan and Harry.

The former Royal couple will present the series ‘Live to Lead’ that looks at influential leaders throughout history.

It comes after their bombshell documentary aired the final three episodes last week.

Harry describes how the series was inspired by former South African president Nelson Mandela.



He then goes on to quote the great leader and says ‘What counts in life is not the mere fact that we’ve lived…’

Before Meghan finishes his quote for him and adds: ‘It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead.’

Harry adds: ‘It’s about people who have made brave choices…’

And Meghan adds: ‘To fight for change and to become leaders…’

Before Harry concludes: ‘And for giving inspiration to the rest of us, to live, to lead.’

The 7-part series will feature interviews with world leaders including New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, social justice attorney and advocate Bryan Stevenson and U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.



The series is said to allow world leaders to ‘share messages of courage, compassion, humility, hope and generosity.’

The series, which is said to have been inspired by Nelson Mandela’s legacy, is produced by Blackwell & Ruth in association with The Nelson Mandela Foundation, the Sussexes’ production company Archewell and Cinetic Media.

Other interviews in the series include climate change activist Greta Thunberg, South Africa’s national rugby union team captain and social inequality campaigner Siya Kolisi, feminist activist Gloria Steinem, and anti-apartheid activist and former Justice of the Constitutional Court of South Africa Albie Sachs.

Prince Harry and Meghan will exec produce the series alongside Ben Browning and Chanel Pysnik for Archewell with Geoff Blackwell Ruth Hobday exec producing for Blackwell & Ruth and John Sloss for Cinetic.

Blackwell will direct the series, which he conceived alongside Hobday when they worked on a book about Mandela in 2018.

Blackwell said in a statement.: ‘As we worked to absorb 27 years of Mandela’s personal correspondence, reflecting on his brave and selfless commitment to the welfare of others, we were simultaneously confronted by a news cycle relentlessly focused on certain international politicians behaving in precisely the opposite way— shamelessly pursuing their own self-interest, using tactics of division and misinformation to serve power and not the people.’

‘This contrast cemented our resolve to honor Mandela’s values by surfacing the stories of leaders who distinguish themselves through their moral courage, the conviction of their ideals and values, and their prioritization of others.

‘We have been Mandela’s publisher for over a decade and we are fortunate to have a close relationship with the Nelson Mandela Foundation.

‘When we approached them, they warmly agreed to join us in seeking out these inspiring individuals and asking them to agree to be interviewed.”

‘The experience of interviewing them and sharing their stories has been an enriching one for all of us.

‘Through their example, these leaders remind us of our own capacity for leadership and the best part of our humanity at a moment when the world needs true leaders, more than ever.’
