The Duke of Sussex and British singer and songwriter Ed Sheeran have teased an upcoming project for World Mental Health Day in a video posted to the official Sussex Royal Instagram account.

The short video opens with Ed Sheeran ringing a doorbell outside a house – which once you know whose house it belongs to, fittingly, plays the tune of God Save The Queen.

Seconds later the door is opened by none other than Prince Harry, who greets Ed with a friendly “Hi mate.”

Harry also joked about the pair’s shared distinguished feature – red hair – laughing, “It’s like looking in the mirror!”

“Do you mind if I bring the camera in?” Ed asks Harry, to which Harry replied, “Of course, yeah, come on in guys.”

The video then cuts to black with the words “Tomorrow 10th October” appearing on the screen.

Accompanying the video is the caption “Coming soon… @teddysphotos #WMHD,” which gives us a big clue that Ed and Harry have teamed up for a project related to World Mental Health Day.

And if you’re excitedly wondering whether this means we may be getting a glimpse inside the Sussexes’ home, Frogmore Cottage, unfortunately this may not be the case, but it could give us a glimpse inside another royal’s home, with eagle-eyed fans believing the video has been shot at the home of Harry’s cousin, Princess Eugenie.

In the background, a black and white wedding photograph can be seen hanging on the wall and while it’s hard to make out a face, the distinctive V-neck of her wedding gown can be seen.

Princess Eugenie lives at Ivy Cottage at Kensington Palace with her husband Jack Brooksbank, who she married at St George’s Chapel in October last year.

The couple moved into the home last year, and is next door to Nottingham Cottage, where the Duke and Duchess of Sussex lived, before moving to Windsor.

Earlier this week Prince Harry, along with his wife Meghan, brother Prince William and sister-in-law Duchess Catherine, lent their voices towards a video launching a new mental health campaign, Every Mind Matters.

Launched by Britain’s National Health Service (NHS) and backed by a number of mental health charities including the Royal Foundation’s Heads Together Campaign, the initiative aims to help people manage and maintain their mental health and be confident in supporting others.

The video, produced by Love Actually director Richard Curtis and directed by photographer Rankin, sees the four royals take turns narrating the video and also stars other notable UK personalities including actress Gillian Anderson.

According to a royal source who spoke to People, all four of the royals were very eager to take part, with all of them being passionate advocates for mental health and wellbeing and breaking the stigma surrounding mental illness.

“When they heard about it, all four of them were really keen to take part,” the source revealed to People.

“It is a really positive project, and all four of them have been involved and they hope it will have a huge impact.”
