Entertainment and royalty collide to make millions of people around the world be aware of AIDS. R&B superstar and Barbados native Rihanna teamed up with Prince Harry of England to spread awareness of how to get tested for AIDS during the World AIDS' Day in Bridgetown. The event was captured by Kensington Place where they posted a Tweet on their page showing the video of the two as they get tested to remove the stigma about the disease.
The "Work" singer reassured Harry that the finger-pricking test is nothing but just a sting of an ant. However, it looks like the 33-year old royalty is not that comfortable. According to Daily Mail, he asked the counsellor first if she knows what she is going to do to him before testing. And after 20 minutes, the two got negative results.
According to IBTimes, his is the second time that Prince Harry publicly has himself tested with the dreaded disease. It can be recalled that last July, the prince also submits himself to be tested for AIDS at the Guys and St. Thomas' Hospital in London. The event was broadcasted via Facebook live.
Prince Harry is one of the founding members of Sentebale, a charity in Lesotho, Africa that focuses on supporting young people with AIDS. He is devoted to use his platform to give awareness to the public about AIDS and its impact to the people afflicted with it.
Prince Harry, who was rumoured to wed girlfriend Meghan Markle as per report by Jobs & Hire a few days ago, is in people in Barbados to celebrate the country's fifty years of independence last Wednesday. The ceremony was accompanied with concerts, fireworks and unveiling of a monument. Rihanna was born in Saint Micael Barbados in 1988 but later on, her family moved to Bridgetown. She was discovered here in 2003 by producer Evan Rogers. And the rest, as they say is history for this pop icon.
