The eye-opening series will air on December 31 and a promotional trailer features footage of Nelson Mandela and climate change activist Greta Thunberg.
Appearing in the two-minute-long preview, Prince Harry can be heard saying: “This was inspired by Nelson Mandela, who once said ‘What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived,'” before Meghan adds: “It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead.”
The seven-part series features a variety of interviews with world leaders and activists including the likes of New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, climate change activist Greta Thunberg and Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
Live to Lead is produced by Blackwell & Ruth in association with The Nelson Mandela Foundation, the Sussexes’ production company, Archewell, and Cinetic Media.
Their voices give us hope.

Fans raced to Twitter to share their thoughts, with one writing: “No way! I am so incredibly impressed by these two!” whilst a second penned: “Netflix you’re spoiling us. Oh my god love, love, love it.”
“I can’t wait to watch this and I’m so proud of Harry and Meghan and the work that they’re doing,” enthused a third, and a fourth added: “One thing Archewell has mastered is giving good content with a purpose.”
Meghan and Harry’s surprise project comes after the couple caused an online sensation with their bombshell Netflix documentary titled Harry & Meghan.
