Ed Sheeran and Prince Harry release hilarious video making fun of their hair
Ed Sheeran and Prince Harry have teamed up this week, to make a hilarious video together in which the pair make fun of their signature red hair, to help raise awareness for World Mental Health Day.
The video, which has since gone viral on social media, was shared on the official Sussex Royal Instagram page, as well as on Ed Sheeran's official IG account, and on the Royal Family's YouTube channel.
Watch Prince Harry and Ed Sheeran's hilarious video below:
The video opens with Sheeran having his beard combed and shaved to prepare himself for meeting royalty. Harry invites Ed into his home, which even has a doorbell set up to play the National Anthem, and Harry tries discuss the issue of mental health. He decides to write a song about it with Ed, to help raise awareness.
However, Sheeran jokingly presumes that Harry wants to get together with him to give ginger people a higher profile, stating: "It’s time we stood up and said we’re not going to take this any more. We are ginger and we’re going to fight." After Ed deletes his ‘Gingers Unite’ PowerPoint, the two men tell their viewers to reach out to friends and strangers who might be suffering from mental health issues.
The video in question was captioned: "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 adds: "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."
Commenting on the campaign, Chief Executive of the Mental Health Foundation Mark Rowland explained: "As we bring suicide out from the shadows and seek to understand the causes, we need an urgent and sustained approach to prevent it."
He added: "The good news is that every step we take towards preventing suicide is also a step towards a mentally healthier society. We will all benefit if we create a society where we can ask for help, experience less trauma and distress and where support is on hand when we need it."
