While he might have earned a reputation for being rebellious in his youth, the last several years have seen Prince Harry focusing on more charitable acts. Two years ago he started the Invictus games for wounded, injured, or sick armed services personnel and veterans can take part in.
Going back further, in 2006 Prince Harry and Prince Seeiso of Lesotho formed Sentebale, a charity that supports orphans and vulnerable children affected by the HIV/AIDS epidemic in Lesotho. On June 29, a charity concert was held at Kensington Palace for Sentebale. Coldplay closed off the East Lawn’s first ever pop concert and Prince Harry introduced the band for their 10-song set.
That was not the only time the Prince took the stage, however. For the grand finale, Prince Harry, Prince Seeiso, and a choir of 12 from Lesotho joined Coldplay to perform “Up&Up”.
The English Royal also announced earlier in the day that he will begin a new series of meeting to bring awareness for the need to fight HIV/AIDS. Music News reports that:
“Building on his decade of experience in supporting young people with HIV in Lesotho through his charity Sentebale, The Prince is now determined to help his generation understand that the battle against the disease has not yet been won and still needs fighting”.
Prince Harry will also be travelling to South Africa in July for the 2016 International AIDS Conference to meet leaders in the field and speak to delegates.
