Buckingham Palace announces that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s new baby boy’s name is Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.
With baby Archie’s arrival on Monday, it’s been a busy week for the royal family.
But Prince William and Duchess Kate and Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan found time this week to announce they are backing a new text messaging service in the U.K. to help people experiencing mental health problems. Their joint announcement of the plan combats rumors that they have been feuding in recent months.
Reports have been swirling for months that Harry and William, as well as their wives, have developed an adversarial relationship, with Kensington Palace declining to comment on the tabloid speculation.
Their Royal Foundation will provide a 3 million-pound ($3.9 million) grant to back a service called Shout, designed to help people with a wide range of problems including suicidal thoughts, relationship issues and bullying.
Prince William said Friday in a Shout promotional video that 60,000 people have already received help from the service, which is “is free to use, anonymous, and operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week.”
The service’s text conversations are handled by volunteers who have received online training and are monitored by a clinical team.
