Meghan's voice is so lovely!

This sounds like a good initiative.

My mother was part of the team who put together the campaign and she said that the Sussexes and Cambridges were very easy to work with and very down to earth and normal - Harry even started chatting to members of the production and organisation team casually during their breaks. It’s great to see their video messages finally up on screen! I know my mother will be glad the campaign is over, though, since she can actually have some rest, haha! It’s great that the four are doing this campaign though.

And kudos to your mother for her work!

So this is the thing we saw the Cambridges working with Richard Curtis. He recorded all four individually yet only William and Kate were put in the CC. I wonder why? Great video. The work with Heads Together is so crucial and nice to see despite the separate foundations that the four of them will still come together for this.

Your mom must have a very good feeling inside right about now knowing that she was part and parcel that made this whole campaign come together. She's as much as to be lauded for the success as the Sussexes and Cambridges are and her work will be reflected as the campaign grows and makes a difference. This is one thing that I do believe the younger royals are also trying to focus on. That its not just them making a difference but also the people that they meet and work with. Without those people, nothing would be accomplished.

If you're the Hereditary Princess, that makes your mom the Hereditary Queen!

I've never understood how some things get in the CC and others don't. It's a good thing most people just see the end result, which in this case is an excellent initiative that is clearly supported by both the Cambridges and the Sussexes, so well done to them all.

It is rather strange and frustrating. And frankly not very transparent. There should be a better way to account for royal work. It would probably help all of them out in terms of actually educating the public about what they do because a lot of British folks in my circles, even those who work in government (with a few exceptions i.e. those who work in certain sections), don't think the royals do much and the current way engagements are tallied doesn't help.

Neither have I Ista. I wonder if things might be easier to understand with the next reign?

Thank you! I'll pass on your kind words to her - I'm sure she'll be happy to hear them

As of right now the video has been posted to Kensington Royal’s Twitter and Instagram accounts but nothing from the Sussexes.

What I don't completely understand is how this campaign 'Every Mind Matters' relates to the 'Heads Together' campaign. What exactly are they 'doing'? And how is that different from what Heads Together is already doing?

Thanks in advance!

I believe Every Mind Matters is a government sponsored mental health campaign that the Cambridges and Sussexes through Heads Together are supporting.

"...Every Mind Matters – a groundbreaking new mental health campaign from Public Health England, in partnership with the NHS."
...
"In backing the campaign, we join famous names as well as some of the nation’s biggest companies from the high street, entertainment, sport and finance. Launching ahead of this week’s World Mental Health Day, it is also backed by a coalition of mental health charities, including Mind, the Mental Health Foundation, the Samaritans, Heads Together and Time to Change."

My mistake. I looked at Sussexes but missed it.

The Queen decides what is and what isn't in the CC. If she didn't approve Harry and Meghan's involvement it was because she didn't think it was something they did that was official. They did it as private individuals and not as representatives of the monarchy - plain and simple. It is the same with a number of the things Meghan did on the recent tour of southern Africa - didn't count as an official engagement and thus they were private events for her. Just because there is media coverage of an event doesn't make if an official event e.g. only the Queen is credited with attending Ascot and yet we see most of the family there at least once if not two or three times over the five days. For all bar the Queen it is a private event even if for her it is an official one.

Engagements are tallied differently by everyone who does them and the royals themselves do NOT publish a tally. They simply put out a record of the official events. People, like me, then do a count. I have recently seen articles comparing the number of days Camilla has worked with the number of engagements the Queen has done to put down Camilla. The 'official' count that comes out at the end of each year is, like mine, simply done by a fan and has nothing official about it.

Two royals can attend the same event - for one it is an official event while for the other it isn't e.g. earlier this year there was an official event at the National Gallery for Catherine. Beatrice was also there but she wasn't there officially and so not in the CC.

The Queen makes the decision. If you think it should be done better - write and tell her.

What goes into the CC also changes over time e.g. in 1997 pretty well every time a royal went overseas (and they seem to have done a lot more then than they do now) there was an official farewell at the airport with the Ambassador/High Commissioner of the country/ies to be visited present to 'farewell' the royals. The Queen and Philip were also officially welcomed home. Either that no longer happens or if it does it is no longer recorded.

This makes zero sense as they all to put in the same amount of time. Mr Curtis traveled to all four of them and recorded it. So how is it official for the Cambriges and private for the Sussexes yet launched as an official campaign. They need to fix their system because it is flawed.
