Famous gingers Prince Harry, Ed Sheeran team up for World Mental Health Day


Prince Harry and Ed Sheeran are teaming up to talk about World Mental Health Day — and their shared experience as redheads.

The British royal and the “Castle on the Hill” singer teamed up for a lighthearted video released Thursday to mark the international event.

But Sheeran appears confused about the nature of the work the pair is doing.

“I just feel like it’s time 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, the sixth in line to the British throne.

“OK, slightly awkward,” the prince replies. “This is about World Mental Health Day.”

The two public figures — both of them, according to Sheeran’s computer notes, “Moroccan sunset”-hued — then get serious to share their mental health message.

“Guys, this World Mental Health Day, reach out. Make sure that your friends, strangers, look out for anybody that might be suffering in silence,” Prince Harry says directly to the camera. “And we’re all in this together.” 

In 2016, Harry, along with his brother Prince William and his wife the Duchess of Cambridge, formed a mental health organization called Heads Together. 

Earlier this year, Kensington Palace announced that the 35-year-old prince would partner with Oprah Winfrey for an Apple TV documentary series focused on mental health airing in 2020.
