Prince Harry follows in Princess Diana's footsteps, visits HIV charity

Harry, 32, visited three different organizations in Leicester, England.

Harry, 32, spent time at the Leicester AIDS Support service (LASS) which provides vital support to those living with AIDS or affected by AIDS. The charity is celebrating its 30th anniversary.

Harry paused to look at several photos of his late mother at the center. The fifth-in-line to the British throne is often called the "People's Prince" for his passionate devotion to children and his efforts to reduce the stigma around HIV and AIDS, just as his mother did.

"It cannot be acceptable that the first time young people know what HIV is when they catch it,” he said.

Harry also visited a school in Leicester that runs the Yes You Can project to help students reach their potential. Harry encouraged kids and mentors struggling to not give up during the challenging periods of adolescence and discussed the additional challenges kids often face from the pressures of social media and the internet.

“Never give up teamwork because you can never do anything by yourself,” he told the students. “Learn from your mistakes. It is OK to make mistakes as long as you learn from them and learn from others. There is so much you can do.”

Harry joined in a game of "football-volleyball" while visiting Pink Lizard, an organization that uses sports to build confidence in kids.

British papers are reporting that Harry and Markle went on a private date Sunday night to London's Natural History Museum after the museum closed.
