Teamwork! In honor of World Mental Health Day, Prince Harry and Ed Sheeran have come together to raise awareness. The Duke of Sussex, 35, took to Instagram on Thursday, October 10, to share what started out as a funny video of the 28-year-old singer getting a haircut before meeting with Harry.
“I’m very excited today,” Ed said in the beginning of the clip. “We’re gonna go film a thing with Prince Harry. He contacted me about doing a charity video with him. You know it’s going to be good.” Once the “Shape of You” singer showed up to Harry’s place, he jokingly expressed he was under the impression this collaboration was related to being a redhead.

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 Check out the accounts below for more resources and support: @Heads_Together @Calmzone @MentalHealthFoundation @CharityNoPanic @SamaritansCharity @YoungMindsUK @GiveUsAShoutInsta @Childline_official @LetsTalkAboutMentalHealth @Jedfoundation @Pandas_UK @Charitysane @MindCharity @TimeToChangeCampaign @RethinkMentalIllness @MentalHealthMates @ActionHappiness @MHFAEngland @DitchTheLabel @TheBlurtFoundation
“Well, you know, the jokes and the snide comments … I just feel like it’s time we stood up and said, ‘We are not going to take this anymore. We are ginger, and we’re gonna fight.'” LOL. Harry then made it clear that this video was intended for World Mental Health day and encouraged viewers to reach out and get help.
“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 on the Sussex Royal Instagram post read. “There’s no need to suffer in silence — share how you’re feeling, ask how someone is doing and listen for the answer.

We love that seeing the royal family work with celebs for such a good cause. Most recently, Meghan Markle collaborated with British Vogue as the magazine’s first guest-editor and highlighted several A-Listers, including Michelle Obama.
It’s clear that the duchess, 38, is hardworking and now that she has a baby, she’s doing her best to prioritize what matters most to her. “Now that Meghan’s maternity leave has come to an end, she’s having to create a healthy balance between work and family life,” a source exclusively told Life & Style in September. Meghan and Harry welcomed their son, Archie, into the world in May, and it’s been a whirlwind for the parents since then. However, based on how happy the 5-month-old always looks, we think the couple is doing just fine as parents!
