Just a few months back, you couldn’t read the news without seeing updates on a feud between the Sussex and Cambridge royals. They’ve hardly been seen together for months — but Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have a new project with Prince William and Kate Middleton at last, and we’re so excited to see their first collaboration since they split their charity foundations back in July. Naturally, it’s for a good cause. And even better: You’ll have the chance to see the final product for yourself.
People reports that these two royal couples have worked together to film a three-minute PSA on mental health for the Every Mind Matters program. The video was written by Richard Curtis, the famed writer and director behind Love Actually and Notting Hill, and includes appearances from Gillian Anderson, Glenn Close, and Great British Bake Off winner Nadiya Hussain too. A royal source tells People that all four royals were “really keen to take part,” and they “hope it will have a huge impact.”
The video begins with William: “Everyone knows that feeling, when life gets on top of us,” he says. “Me, you—” Harry jumps in: “Your brother, your mother, your friend, your colleague, your neighbor.” Meghan and Kate get more into the specifics of what the Every Mind Matters program is there to do: “Every Mind Matters will show you simple ways to look after your mental health,” Meghan explains. “It’ll get you started with a free online plan designed to help you deal with stress, boost your mood, improve your sleep and feel more in control,” Kate adds.
All four royals are passionate advocates for mental health awareness, and this project is the perfect way for them to join forces once again. This video has such an important message, and — as always — we love to see these royals using their platform for good.
