In a new comedic video with actress Melissa McCarthy, Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, announced a charitable initiative in honor of her 40th birthday. The video mostly cuts between Meghan and Melissa, but at the very end of the clip, the Duchess included a cheeky blooper of her husband, Prince Harry.
At around 2 minutes and 6 seconds, the camera captures Meghan in an elegant office, with a window on the left side of the frame. Eagle-eyed viewers will notice Prince Harry in the window, showing off his juggling skills. The Duke of Sussex sports a polo shirt and dark sunglasses, and juggles about three balls, albeit not that successfully. As soon as McCarthy glimpses the Prince, she starts laughing, but Meghan does not yet know what is going on behind her. The Duchess then quickly turns, sees her husband, and begins laughing as well, saying, "What?!"
Before the Prince's surprise leaves Meghan and Melissa in giggles, the two women discussed the Duchess's new 40x40 initiative, where she is asking famous friends to donate 40 minutes of their time to mentor women returning to the workforce after the pandemic.
"Because I’m turning 40, I’m asking 40 friends to donate 40 minutes of their time to help mentor a woman who is mobilizing back into the workforce," the Duchess says in the video. "Over 2 million women in the US alone and tens of millions around the world have lost their jobs due to Covid and I think if we all do it and all commit 40 minutes to some sort of act of service, we can create a ripple effect."
Per a press release, the other bold-faced names participating in the 40x40 project include Adele, Amanda Gorman, Amanda Nguyen, Deepak Chopra, Dr. Ibram X. Kendi, Gloria Steinem, José Andrés, Dr. Nadine Burke Harris, Sophie Grégoire Trudeau, and Stella McCartney.
