Prince Harry Wants Us to Stop Staring at Him — VIDEO
Dec. 1 isn't just the beginning of another month or the day when ABC Family's 25 Days of Christmas begins. It's so much more than that, as it is World AIDS Day. Prince Harry is honoring the day via his #FeelNoShame Twitter campaign which is helping to reduce the stigma linked to HIV. The honorable campaign was launched by Sentebale, Harry's charity benefitting children in Lesotho, Africa. In honor of spreading the good word, the ever-so-charming Prince Harry shared a video confession on Sentebale's Twitter page revealing a secret as a way to encourage others to not "feel any shame about their secrets."
Surprisingly, Harry is afraid of public speaking and being around large crowds. One would think growing up in the spotlight would make something like that much easier, but it hasn't for Harry.
As he says in the video,
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. Now that I've confessed that, I'll probably be even more worried that people are looking at me. But, thank you very much for everyone who's taken part, and I must encourage as many people to get involved as possible.
So, as much as we all love staring at Prince Harry, it makes him extremely nervous. Now, let's all stop gawking at the royal and participate in such a special day, so we too can spread the word about such an important cause.
