Prince Harry and Ed Sheeran Teamed Up for World Mental Health Day and We Have the Video
Prince Harry and Ed Sheeran are teaming up in honor of a great cause—World Mental Health Day!
We woke up this morning to a new video posted on the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s official Instagram account (@sussexroyal) that showcased a major project between the singer and Prince Harry (our two favorite redheads).
In the video, we see Sheeran getting ready to meet with the Duke of Sussex and arriving at the royal’s door. “I’m really excited today. I’m going to go and film a thing with Prince Harry,” says Sheeran. “He contacted me about doing a charity video with him, which, you know, is going to be good. I’ve long admired him from afar.”
After a short exchange, the songwriter asks if he can bring the cameras inside and Harry happily agrees.
See the video below (and be sure to turn the sound on).
“It’s World Mental Health Day!” the caption reads. “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. There’s no need to suffer in silence—share how you’re feeling, ask how someone is doing and listen for the answer. Be willing to ask for help when you need it and know that we are all in this together. #WMHD.”
While the video is pretty short, there are a few major things to take away.
First, if you’re like us, you quickly noticed that unique doorbell ring—and rewatched the video a few times to clearly hear the tune again. Yep, that might sound like “My Country ’Tis of Thee” to Americans, but those in the U.K. will quickly recognize it as the national anthem, “God Save the Queen.”
And then, of course, there’s that funny misunderstanding. Once inside the home (reports say that they are not actually at Frogmore, but at Princess Eugenie's cottage), Harry reveals he's excited to be working with Sheeran on the project. However, it becomes clear that the two men are totally not on the same page.
“Well, you know, with like the jokes and the snide comments. I just feel like it’s time that we stood up and said, you know, we’re not going to take this anymore. We are ginger and we’re going to fight,” Sheeran tells Harry.
Pretty clever, considering the two have often been compared for their similar looks.
“Um, this may be a miscommunication, but this is about World Mental Health Day,” Harry responds. Awkward.
Both men have been vocal advocates for mental health awareness, so it makes sense that they would come together on a project for the worldwide day.
Thanks for the important reminder, you two.
