WATCH: Prince Harry and Ed Sheeran team up for World Mental Health Day

Prince Harry and Ed Sheeran have teamed up to star in a hilarious video, posted on the Sussex’s official Instagram page, for World Mental Health Day.
After a quick intro from Ed, the video continues with him ringing Prince Harry’s doorbell, which chimes to the tune of God Save the Queen. As they greet one another Harry jokes “It’s like looking in the mirror”.
Inside Harry’s home, the two begin to discuss a project they are very passionate about but as the conversation continues it becomes evident they are not on the same page. When Ed says “We aren’t going to take this anymore. We are ginger, we’re going to fight,” the situation becomes awkward.
After Harry replies the project is actually for World Mental Health day the next shot we see shows Ed deleting the title “GINGERS UNITE” on his PowerPoint.
Despite the comic angle of the video, the main focus is to note the importance of World Mental Health day and how we all should be reaching out to those suffering silence.
The post was accompanied by the caption: “It’s World Mental Health Day! Both Prince Harry and Ed Sheeran want to ensure that not just today but every day, you look after yourself, your friends and those around you.” The caption also includes a list of accounts for mental health resources and support.
Prince Harry is a passionate advocate for speaking about mental health, and earlier this week starred in an NHS campaign and advert alongside Prince William, Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle.
