Prince Harry Reveals Surprising Secret


Prince Harry spends a lot of time in the public eye, being royalty and all, but he recently revealed a deep secret that has many surprised. "Believe it or not, I get incredibly nervous before
public speaking."

The 30-year-old made the confession to mark World AIDS Day as part of an HIV video campaign that encourages people to share their deepest secrets. Prince Harry founded a charity called Sentebale in 2006 to work with children in Africa fighting the HIV/AIDS epidemic. He also launched the hashtag #FeelNoShame which aims to highlight the anxiety felt by many worldwide that can sometimes prevent them from getting the help they need.

Other stars have opened up for the campaign. TV presenter Luke Franks revealed he sometimes wears women's jeans. And Nicole Scherzinger went a little deeper and posted an emotional video. "My secret is sometimes I don't feel like I'm enough or worth it and I don't fit in, but hashtag feel no shame."

An estimated 35 million people are living with HIV around the world. Help reduce the stigma for those affected and #FeelNoShame.
