On Thursday, Prince Harry and Ed Sheeran shared a video to spread awareness about World Mental Health Day. The video was posted on the Sussex Royal official account.
The funny video started off with the British singer getting a shave. Sheeran says, “I’m really excited today. I’m going to go and film a thing with Prince Harry. 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.”
The pair is shown wearing matching grey shirts and Prince Harry jokingly says, “It’s like looking in the mirror.”
Furthermore, the clip then shows Prince Harry and Ed Sheeran conversing about the purpose of their meeting. The Duke of Sussex says, “This, for me, is a subject and a conversation that’s just not talked about enough. I think people all over the world are really suffering.”
The Shape of You singer also adds that he was even trying to write a song about the problem. To which the royal replies, “Someone with your skill-set, to be able to write lyrics of a song to raise awareness would be amazing.”
“People just don’t understand what it’s like for people like us,” Ed further adds. “The jokes, the snide comments, it’s time we stood up and said, ‘We’re not going to take this anymore’.” Adding further, “We are ginger and we’re going to fight.
Prince Harry suddenly says, “Um, OK. Um, slightly awkward. Um, this may be a miscommunication, but this is about World Mental Health Day.”
Sheeran responds sheepishly, “No no, I definitely knew that.” While he deletes the words “ginger’s unite” from a presentation he had prepared on his laptop.
The clip then shows the duo looking serious and they say, “Guys, this Mental Health Day, reach out, make sure your friends, strangers – lookout for anyone who may suffer in silence. We’re all in this together.”
The video also informed their followers about resources and people they can consult regarding mental health issues.
