AceShowbiz - Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex paid a surprise virtual visit to Crisis Text Line charity workers during an employee Zoom meeting.
Crisis counsellors for the organisation, which offers free support via text in the U.S. for those struggling with mental health issues, were rocked by the appearance of the British royals at the virtual gathering on Wednesday, May 13, 2020.
Crisis Text Line employee Ricky Neal wrote alongside a picture of him smiling in front of the computer, with the Duke and Duchess and his colleagues in full view on the Zoom teleconferencing call, "Still shocked that Meghan and Harry took over our staff meeting yesterday!"
Prince Harry and Meghan dropped in to promote the importance of mental health amidst the coronavirus pandemic. Their appearance occurs just a year after they helped launch Shout, a similar text-based helpline in the United Kingdom, with Prince Harry's brother Prince William and his wife, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge.
Crisis Text Line counsellors offer help 24 hours a day, seven days per week, and have been kept particularly busy during the COVID-19 pandemic as people struggle to manage their mental health while on lockdown.
