The Duke of Sussex signed his lucrative deal with Netflix in 2020

Prince Harry’s new Invictus Games documentary has dropped on a popular streaming service, despite his contract with Netflix.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex travelled to Vancouver earlier this month for the Winter Invictus Games's One Year to Go event.

Prince Harry, 39, discussed flying over to the UK to see King Charles and possibly getting American citizenship.

He also explained how his children Prince Archie, four, and Princess Lilibet, two, have "incredible" senses of humour.

The new documentary, titled Prince Harry's Mission: Life, Family and the Invictus Games, is based on interviews given by Harry to ABC News.

This is despite the Duke and Duchess of Sussex having a lucrative Netflix deal which they signed in 2020.

Meghan and Harry are thought to have one year left before their deal with the streaming service ends.

The new documentary dropping on Hulu has come as a shock to those at Netflix, according to reports in The Mail.

This comes as the duke and duchess are understood to have been paid only half of their lucrative contract.

During the ABC interview, Harry discussed flying back to the UK to see the King.

He said: "I spoke to him. I jumped on a plane and went to go and see him as soon as I could. I love my family. The fact I was able to get on a plane and see him and spend any time with him - I'm grateful for that."

The prince was asked if the King's illness could have a reunifying effect on the Royal Family.

Harry replied: "Yeah sure. Through all these families I see on a day-to-day basis the strength of the family unit coming together. Any illness, any sickness brings family together."

The Duke of Sussex was also asked about his father's current condition, to which he said: "That stays between me and him.

"I have my own family as we all do. My family and life in California is how it is.

"I have got other trips planned that will take me through the UK, or back to the UK, so I will stop in and see them when I can."
