Royal news: Fab foursome make incredible announcement

Royal news: Fab foursome make incredible announcement

Royal fans rejoice! The fab four are back again with an incredible announcement for the world. 

Prince William, Duchess Kate, Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan may be heading their separate ways with their own charities ahead of the recent news that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were splitting form the Royal foundation, but that doesn't mean they won’t continue to do incredible work together. 

The two royal couples took to Instagram on July 31 to share some heartwarming news about an initiative the foursome started together a few months ago. 

Give Us A Shout is a charity launched by the fab four and helps people when they are in a moment of crisis or need immediate help. 

It was launched by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex in May and has just reached 100,000 conversations – a positive sign help is being given to those who truly need it. 

"Congratulations to the incredible team of @giveusashoutinsta volunteers, who have now taken 100,000 text conversations," Kensington Palace announced on Instagram.

The @SussexRoyal Instagram page shared their own inspiring message, writing: "Sending a big shout out and congratulations to the @giveusashoutinsta team."

They also added additional information about the work Give Us A Shout does. 

"Life can feel overwhelming for so many reasons. Our Crisis Volunteers are there for you 24/7 & will talk to you about whatever is troubling you: stress, relationships, anxiety, loneliness, sexuality, bullying, self-harm & depression."

Earlier this month, the Sussexes announced they would be going their own separate ways from the Royal Foundation – a longstanding project between Prince William and Prince Harry. 

The foundation will now be headed by Prince William and his wife, the Duchess of Cambridge, while Prince Harry and the Duchess of Sussex are in the works to set up their own charity.
