Ed Sheeran and Prince Harry have come together to spread awareness for mental health in the most hilarious way, on the occasion of World Mental Health Day.
Ed and Harry made a video to educate people about the importance of mental health and posted the video on their Instagram handles. But this is not it, the video is the funniest and most hilarious one.
The video begins with an excited Ed getting his beard trimmed. He looks at the camera and tells that he was excited that day as he was going to go and film a thing with Prince Harry. He goes on to inform that Harry contacted him about doing a charity video with him, which, he expects to be good. He also tells that he has long admired the Price from afar.

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
However, the Shape of You singer was under a false impression about the topic he was going to discuss with the Redheaded Royal. He thinks that the 35-year-old Duke wishes to discuss their redheads with him, while Prince Harry wished to discuss mental health awareness.
The 28 years old singer visits Price Harry at the Kennington Palace and thanked the Duke for inviting him, stating, “This is something I’m quite passionate about.” Harry replies, “Me as well.” Then, Harry expresses that he thinks that the topic is not discussed amply and he feels that people all over the world are suffering.
Ed informs that he has been trying to work a song on the issue. He says, “People just don’t understand what it’s like for people like us,” while Harry does a double-take. But Ed continues, “Well, you know, with the jokes and the snide comments. I just feel like it’s time that we stood up and said, ‘We’re not going to take this anymore. We are ginger, and we’re going to fight.”
This is when the Duke of Sussex tells Ed that the video is supposed to be about mental health awareness. And an embarrassed Ed deletes the phrase ‘Ginger Unite’ from his computer.
The video ends with Ed and Harry spreading mental health awareness, urging people to seek help if they suffer from mental health issues.
