New Prince Harry documentary to air over Christmas

This month, ITV will air a new documentary about Prince Harry – and it’s like all our Christmases have come at once!

The new documentary, which is set to broadcast during the lead up to Christmas day, will follow the prince during a trip to Lesotho in Africa where he founded the charity Sentebale in 2004.

The charity helps the most vulnerable children in Lesotho get the support they need to lead healthy and productive lives.

While he was setting up the charity in 2004, he famously met then four-year-old Mutsu at a children’s home for orphans, where the duo was pictured holding hands. They were last reunited in 2014. 

The new documentary is set to focus on the Prince’s charity work and meeting the children it helps.

Sue Murphy, head of Factual Entertainment on ITV, said: "It’s fascinating to observe Prince Harry from boy to man, to see him following in his mother’s humanitarian footsteps and to witness his undeniable commitment and passion for his work in Africa.”

Russ Malkin, creative director at Big Earth Productions, added: "It was compelling to have access to Harry when he was clearly so relaxed and candid about his commitment to his work in Africa".

The documentary will be broadcast on ITV on Monday, 19 December at 9pm.
