Prince Harry Accepts Award From Gay Magazine On Behalf Of Princess Diana's Historic AIDS Activism

Prince Harry has been following in his mother's footsteps, recently visiting HIV clinics, attending the International AIDS Conference in South Africa, and taking an HIV test on Facebook Live in order to urge people to get tested.

The prince, 33, who joined the likes of Kylie Minogue at the Attitude Awards, called on all people to "embrace regular testing" as he received the Legacy award on behalf of the Princess of Wales 20 years after her death.

Prince Harry touched many hearts, just like his mother did, while giving a speech at the Virgin Holidays Attitude Awards, on Thursday night.

"She knew that AIDS was one of the things that many wanted to ignore and seemed like a hopeless challenge", Prince Harry said at the event.

In front of the world's media, she shook the hand of a man suffering with the illness.

"I believe that she would be telling everyone across society - not just those most at risk - that with effective treatment being free and available in the United Kingdom, that we must all embrace regular testing - both for our own sake and for those that we love".

The Princess made headlines around the world in April 1987 when she opened the UK's first purpose-built HIV/Aids unit that exclusively cared for patients infected with the virus, shaking the hand of a man living with the virus, without wearing gloves, as she did so.
"She knew that the misunderstanding of this relatively new disease was creating a unsafe situation when mixed with homophobia".

The prince said that although he's sure his mother would be proud of his work, that's not why he chooses to follow down a similar path.

As he accepted the award, the publication unveiled its new, limited edition magazine cover featuring a black-and-white photograph of Diana by Patrick Demarchelier.
