Just when it seemed like the drama was really heating up within the royal family, a little one was born and dispelled any tension that might have remained.
It has been long rumored that the Sussex duo and the Cambridge duo had been at it for quite some time over varying topics. Many believe that Meghan is to blame since all of the drama and chaos never appeared until she became a permanent member of the royal family.
When Baby Sussex was born, all of that seemingly went out the window as the whole family oohed and ahhed over little Archie Harrison. Do you blame them, though? I mean he’s utterly adorable and who could have arguments and tension when that little guy is in your midst?
Shortly following his birth - four days to be exact - news hit that the “Fab Four” had been working on something together. This not only startled many fans who thought that they were at each other’s throats but it also proved that despite what you may hear (be it true or a lie) the royal family has a way of always uniting and banding together against all odds.
What the group has joined in to do is support a new initiative that is near and dear to all of their hearts. Together, they are launching a project called Shout. This is an affiliate program to the Crisis Text Line that offers free, confidential mental health support via text messaging.
According to sources: “Crisis Text Line has been in the United States for over five years and has processed 100 million messages with the help of 5,000 trained crisis volunteers since launching.” The U.K. didn’t have this program, so the four royals felt it was time to make something like this happen because it’s desperately needed all over the world.
The CEO and founder of Crisis Text Line, Nancy Lublin, elaborated on the royal family’s decision to bring the project across the pond. “They’re really the first celebrities around the world to really take on mental health. It’s been so personal and they’ve done such a fantastic job elevating the issue and reducing stigma.”
She continued: “They’ve visited our offices multiple times in the U.K., they’ve met with volunteers, which is so special. They’ve really been hands-on. I think it’s so powerful. We really couldn’t ask for better spokespeople and champions. Mental health is the epidemic of this generation.”
We couldn’t be more thrilled and proud to know that they’re all uniting together to help aid those struggling with mental health issues. We hope this is just the first of many ventures William, Kate, Harry, and Meghan do together.
