Oprah Winfrey says the documentary series she is working on with the Duke of Sussex will "normalise" mental illness.

Prince Harry and Winfrey will be co-creators and executive producers of the project for Apple's streaming service.

It will focus on both mental illness and mental wellness, and talk show host Winfrey said she hoped it would remove the stigma surrounding the subject.

Speaking on US TV programme The Daily Show on Wednesday, she said: "Me and Harry are going to normalise (mental illness) to the point where people are going to be like, 'Hey, I've got a mental illness!'"
