Diana the late Princess of Wales visited Leicester Aids Support Service (LASS) in November 1991 to raise awareness of AIDS and HIV at a time when the disease was feared and taking a huge toll on many communities.

Prince Harry who’s brother William is second in line to the British throne, is a passionate activist in the field. Harry was shown a photo of his mother that the late Princess had signed, as well as a memorial she launched in honour of those who have died from AIDS.

The prince himself was tested for HIV live on Facebook last year, resulting in a five-fold surge in demand for self-testing kits to the HIV Charity Terrence Higgins Trust.
