Prince Harry capped his visit to Barbados Tuesday with the world’s most famous Bajan. Grammy-winning superstar Rihanna, 28, joined the royal, 32, to help her homeland celebrate its 50th anniversary of independence and do their part for World Aids Day.
During their hospital tour, they happily demonstrated how easy it is to get tested. Together, they took an HIV Test and all for an excellent cause! To raise awareness, the National HIV/Aids Commission in Barbados is trying to remove the stigma associated with the illness and encourage men to get tested and talk more openly about the disease. Over the last four years, a successful drop-in market-stall event has been run on World Aids Day, ultimately encouraging men to stop and have a relaxed conversation about any issues.
Their results of course came back positive and Kensington palace even posted this video of the streamlined finger prick process on Twitter :

Later, Rihanna and Prince Harry sat next to each other at a concert to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Barbados’s independence. According to the Vanity Fair, Harry gave a speech, and Rihanna performed the national anthem at the event.
We can imagine Rihanna’s text-message response to the “OMG you saw Prince Harry?!?!” texts she’s received today were likely in the vein of, “Oh, that’s who that was?”.
