Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have recorded an episode of the Teenage Therapy podcast, which will stream tomorrow to mark World Mental Health Day. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will talk about prioritising mental health, removing the stigma around it and discuss how we can all contribute to a healthier world: physically, mentally, emotionally, holistically.
The podcast will be available from Spotify, Apple and Youtube from 9am PT, which is 4pm in the UK.
The episode was recorded earlier this week at a coronavirus compliant location in Montecito, California.
Masks were worn the entire time.
Meghan and Harry learned about the Teenager Therapy podcast from a recent article in the New York Times.
An insider told Omid Scoobie, the co-author for a recent bombshell biography about the Sussexes, the couple were impressed by the show and wanted to collaborate with the hosts.
The insider said: “They listened to a few episodes and were so impressed with the show and the grace and honesty of the young hosts.
“They knew immediately that they wanted to support their important work.”
Teenage Therapy excitedly announced the collaboration with Meghan and Harry on Twitter earlier today.

Their website states: “We are 5 friends from very different backgrounds with a love for helping others.
“We created this podcast with a genuine passion for helping others.
“However, we are pretty average so don’t expect any amazing talents.”
Their recent podcasts have included discussions on acne and the realities of friendship.
This year’s theme set by the World Federation for Mental Health is “mental health for all”.
The need to prioritise mental health has come to the fore over the past six months, due to the challenges of the coronavirus pandemic.
The lockdowns across the globe have caused financial hardship, as well as loss, anxiety and reduced human contact.
