Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are joining forces with Prince William and Kate Middleton to cast their rumored differences aside in the name of helping others … namely, people dealing with mental health issues.
The British Royals just launched a mental health crisis hotline, dubbed Shout … a free text messaging service aiming to provide 24/7 support for people in the UK who are going through a rough patch.
The fact Harry and Meghan are working alongside William and Kate is huge news … because it comes in the face of swirling rumors about possible feuds and rifts within the Royal family.
As for the new text messaging helpline … it’s powered by a team of volunteers trained to create a safe space for people burdened by mental health issues. The conversations can be difficult, as volunteers must listen without judgment on a range of issues, including suicidal thoughts, bullying, self-harm, abuse, relationships and sexuality.
That last topic is super interesting as it relates to the Royals … they don’t usually talk about issues with sexuality.
Shout launching in the United Kingdom comes on the heels of Harry, Meghan, William and Kate making a commitment to their Heads Together campaign, which supports conversations on mental health.
There’s no rest for the weary … Harry and Meghan are jumping right into a new project only days after she gave birth to the couple’s first child, baby Archie.
