In the opening, Sheeran is getting his beard trimmed.
“Pretty excited today! Going to go film this thing with Prince Harry,” he says. “You know it’s going to be good. I’ve long admired him, from afar.”
Once with Harry, they begin chatting and are clearly not on the same page.
“This is something I’m quite passionate about,” Sheeran states, to which Harry asks, “Oh, you as well?”
While describing this as a “subject that’s just not talked about enough,” Sheeran interrupts saying he’s been trying to make a song about it.
“People don’t understand what it’s like for people like us,” he tells Harry.
Clearly confused, Sheeran follows up by saying, “With all the snide comments and I feel like it’s time to just stand up and say we’re not going to take this anymore. We are ginger and we are going to fight!”
“Slightly awkward,” Prince Harry responds. “This is about World Mental Health Day.”
In the end, they got their important message out and had some fun doing so.
Sheeran posted a touching message to followers when sharing the video, encouraging fans to seek help if they need it.
“Myself and Prince Harry, want to ensure that not just today but every day, you look after yourself, your friends and those around you,” he shared. “There’s no need to suffer in silence.”
World Mental Health Day began in 1992 and Harry has been a longtime advocate.
