The Telegraph : Prince Harry proves powers of persuasion as he meets people with HIV
His brief was to help break down the stigma around HIV, and Prince Harry proved that he has inherited his mother’s remarkable powers of persuasion today when he met a group of people living with the virus.
Before the Prince arrived at the event in London for the sexual health charity Naz, only five HIV positive members of the charity’s Joyful Noise Choir had agreed to be photographed with him. But after a rallying call from the Prince about the need to go public, all but a handful of the 25-strong group were happily posing for pictures with him.
It evoked memories of Diana, Princess of Wales educating the world about HIV 25 years ago when she made a point of shaking hands with patients to show there was nothing “dangerous” about it.
