Meghan Markle honored elephants on Disney+ and now Prince Harry's doing some good on Netflix.

The news comes months after he announced the postponement of his Invictus Games, an global sports competition that brings together wounded or sick servicemen and women, until May or June 2021. The Duke of Sussex is featured in a new documentary about the Paralympics coming to the streaming service later this month.

"There isn't anything else in the world that can bring you back from the darkest places than sport", he says in the clip.

While the stars of Rising Phoenix are the athletes themselves-such as Tatyana McFadden of the United States, a Para Athletics competitor, or Cui Zhe, a powerlifter from China-parasport supporters also appear to comment, such as members of the International Paralympic Committee and the Duke of Sussex, who founded the Invictus Games. And what they choose to take on is extraordinary! It celebrates the power of sport in recovery and how it can help, physically or psychologically, those suffering from injuries or illness.

The couple have indicated that they intend to carve out a new career by, in part, producing documentaries on their key issues such as conservation, female empowerment and mental health. "It's a powerful and meaningful process that I am so proud to be a part of".

"Rising Phoenix" was originally set to coincide with the 2020 Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games, but the sporting event has been postponed until next year due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Prince Harry is renowned for his love of sport and has supported the industry within his charity work.

Established in 2014, the Invictus Games include sport competitions between injured and recovering soldiers from countries all around the world.
