Prince Harry meets with youth ambassadors
Prince Harry has met with International AIDS Conference youth ambassadors in Africa.
The 31-year-old royal is in South Africa to raise awareness of HIV and is due to lead a session later on Thursday (21.07.16) on how the condition can affect young people.
A series of tweets on Kensington Palace’ official Twitter reads: “Good morning from Durban and the 2016 @AIDS_conference – a busy day ahead for Prince Harry and @Sentebale … Prince Harry has just arrived at the @Sentebale Global Village session at @AIDS_conference …
“Prince Harry catching up with friends from @Sentebale … [and] is now meeting with @AIDS_conference youth ambassadors – youth leadership is vital.”
During the meeting, the Prince was happy to pose for photographs with the ambassadors as well as hold discussions with them briefly.
Meanwhile, last week, Prince Harry encouraged young people to get tested for HIV when he took a test at a London hospital and broadcast it live to the world on Facebook.
Speaking in the video, which was posted on The Royal Family’s social media account, he said: “It’s normal for me, even though I’m not from this part of London or being the person that I am and the people I am sitting around, I am still here being tested.”
Prince Harry’s result came back as “HIV non-reactive”, which means he is absolutely “fine”.
