Ed Sheeran has surprised royal fans after Prince Harry revealed a new collaboration with the star.

The 28-year-old singer was spotted on the Sussex Royal Instagram page teasing a cheeky new video, which has now been revealed as an awareness video for World Mental Health Day.

Harry took to his Sussex Royal account to post a video of the pair discussing the cause.

In the video, Ed can be seen turning up at Harry and Meghan’s royal residence, with the door bell playing ‘God Save The Queen’.

The duo appear to be on friendly terms, greeting each other with “mate”, before Ed heads inside.

This time, Ed wasn’t alone, backed by a full camera crew, with 35-year-old Harry joking that he looked very similar to fellow redhead Ed, saying: “Hey mate, how you doing? It’s like looking in the mirror.”

As a joke, the pair pretend to have their wires crossed, with Ed revealing he has prepared a song, before deleting the title "Gingers Unite" from his laptop as Harry points out he is talking about World Mental Health Day.

The new clip was captioned: "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."
