Prince Harry to visit Mildmay hospital
Britain’s Prince Harry is set to visit the Mildmay Hospital in London next week.
The 31-year-old royal will stop by the medical centre and charity organisation – dedicated to HIV – on December 14 to officially open its new purpose-built facilities in East London.
During his trip to the hospital – the only centre in Europe dedicated to treatment, rehabilitation and medical care for those with difficult HIV-related health conditions – Harry will see how their work has changed over the last two decades.
The flame-haired hunk follows in the footsteps of his late mother Princess Diana, who made numerous trips, both privately and officially, to the organisation during her life.
Just like his mum, Harry is very much aware of the stigmas surrounding HIV and how the negativity can affect those living with the disease, and is on a mission – with the help of his charity Sentebale – to change the views on HIV/AIDS.
The Prince – the grandchild of Queen Elizabeth – has already tried to educate people in Lesotho in South Africa about the virus and to encourage them to seek the support they need.
Following his successful trip to Lesotho, the handsome royal issued a statement via Kensington Palace stating he would make it his mission to stamp out stigma worldwide.
The statement said: “Harry is keen to lend his voice to help tackle the stigma in a wider context outside of Lesotho.”
