Before the awards, the royal couple were given the chance to meet with some of the invited guests. One of the nights most notable guests was 11-year-old Milly Sutherland.
She was presented the award for the "Most Caring Child." During her chat with the royals, she shared a joke with Harry about their hair.
It reported, Milly has spent most of her young life helping care for her sister, Sophie, who had Aicardi Syndrome and passed away in 2018.
"Snap," giggling at her remark he adds, "Can I borrow some? Yours is prettier than mine... and you have more of it."
"Meghan said he has [red hair] and Harry said he definitely is [a redhead]; you can see it in his eyebrows. Harry said he'd had no hair for five months, but Meghan told him she had taken him to the playgroup and she said there were other children there with the same amount of hair or even less."
"People don't understand what it's like for people like us…With the jokes and the snide comments. I just feel like it's time we stood up and said: 'We're not going to take this anymore. We're ginger – and we're going to fight."'
The video was shot in honor of World Mental Health Day. In it Ed mistakenly thinks the two are teaming up for a project to do with being a red head, instead Harry makes it clear that it is for mental health awareness.
Harry and Meghan's focus on mental health is the first initiative they are working on together with Prince William and Kate Middleton, since they agreed to split their charities
