In a clip shared by the Sussex Royal Instagram account, the two engage in a skit as they sat down in Princess Eugenie’s Kensington cottage to discuss a song to raise awareness for World Mental Health Day.

“Someone with your skillset to write a song would be amazing,” Prince Harry said.

Ed Sheeran then joked that nobody understands what it’s like for “people like us” and says “we’re not going to take this anymore.”

The Duke then notes there must be a “miscommunication,” as he actually invited him to film the video to help raise awareness of mental health and to get people talking.

In fact, the caption for the post reads:

“It’s World Mental Health Day!

“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.

“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. #WMHD”
