Prince Harry has finally revealed his big secret and has found that it was not that hard to do.
He admitted that he becomes ‘incredibly nervous’ prior to delivering a speech due to his fear of public speaking.
His speech to YouTube viewers which appeared on Monday, read as follows:
‘Hi, I’m Prince Harry, patron of Sentebale. First of all I’d like to thank everybody for getting involved in the #FeelNoShame campaign, part of Sentebale.’
‘On today, World Aids Day, my secret is, believe it or not, I get incredibly nervous before public speaking, no matter how big the crowd or the audience, and despite the fact that I laugh and joke all the time, I get incredibly nervous, if not anxious actually, before going into rooms full of people when I’m wearing a suit.’
‘And now that I’ve confessed that, I’ll probably be even more worried that people are looking at me, but thank you very much to everyone who’s taken part and I must encourage as many people to get involved as possible. Thank you.’
This revelation was not quite as ordinary as Gemma Arterton’s. The actress revealed that she had never seen one of the films in the Star Wars series, nor any of the Back To The Future movies. She admitted that she is ashamed of that, but referred people to #FeelNoShame.
Other celebrities who have shown their support for the campaign include Nicole Scherzinger, Joss Stone, Louis Smith, Ralph Little, Paloma Faith, Jools Holland, Ricky Tomlinson and Ricky Hatton.
The campaign coincides with World Aids Day and its aim is to show solidarity with the thousands of sufferers who do not reveal their illness as they fear the stigma attached to the condition.
Prince Harry said that to show support for the children in Lesotho and reduce the stigma attached to HIV, we should turn this World Aids Day into one when no-one should feel any shame about any of their secrets.
He said that together we can tackle the stigma surrounding HIV and offer young people with the disease the childhood they deserve. He said for many of us this is a childhood we take for granted.
