In April 2019, it was announced that Harry was working as co-creator and executive producer on a documentary series about mental health together with Oprah Winfrey, which was initially set to air in 2020 on Apple TV+.[4] It was later announced that the series would be released on May 21, 2021, under the title The Me You Can't See.[5]


On Rotten Tomatoes, the series has an approval rating of 92% based on 12 reviews.[6] On Metacritic, it has a score of 61 out of 100, based on 8 critics, indicating "generally favorable" reviews.[7] The series became the most-watched program worldwide since its May 21 premiere on Apple TV+.[3] 25% new viewers joined the service after the program premiered and average weekend viewership in the UK increased by more than 40%.[3]

In June 2021, Buzzfeed News published an article that described purported "inconsistencies and omissions" in Harry's claims during the documentary when compared to previous interviews.[8]
