Prince Harry Reveals His Secret for World Aids Day Campaign
The royal launches his #FeelNoShame campaign
Prince Harry honored World Aids Day by launching a #FeelNoShame campaign for his charity Sentebale. The campaign asks people to share their secrets, as a way to eradicate stigma and shame. The royal's charity is highlighting how thousands of children die of HIV/AIDs because they keep their illness a secret and don't get the medical attention they need.
"My secret is, believe it or not, I get incredibly nervous before public speaking no matter how big the crowd or the audience," says Prince Harry in the clip. "And despite the fact that I laugh and joke all the time, I get incredibly nervous, if not anxious, actually, before going into rooms full of people when I'm wearing a suit. And now that I've confessed that, I'll probably be even more worried that people are looking at me. But, thank you very much for everyone who's taken part, and I must encourage as many people to get involved as possible."
In another video, the royal talks about how one of Sentebale's main programs encourages children to talk openly about their health issues. "To show our support for the children of Lesotho, and help reduce the stigma for all those affected by HIV, we are turning this World AIDS Day into a day in which no one should feel any shame about their secrets."
