The charming royal made the personal confession in support of his #FeelNoShame Twitter campaign, which hopes to encourage the public to reveal their secrets in an effort to help rid the shame that HIV/AIDS carriers may feel.
Prince Harry's royal duties may be full of appearances and public speeches, but this doesn't mean the royal finds these responsibilities easy. In fact, Harry recently admitted he becomes very nervous before addressing a large crowd.
Prince Harry confessed to his fear of public speaking in support of World AIDS Day
The charming Prince's confession was released in a video on Monday (Dec 1st), in support of World AIDS Day. Harry is closely connected to the fight against the disease as he co-founded the charity Sentebale, which works with children in Lesotho, Africa, who have contracted AIDS/HIV.
"Hi, I'm Prince Harry, patron of Sentebale," he says in the clip. "First of all, I'd like to thank everybody for getting involved in the hashtag 'Feel No Shame' campaign."
While wearing a grey sweater with a red ribbon pinned to it, in support of the day, Harry refers to the Twitter campaign he helped start, #FeelNoShame, which encourages the public to reveal their secrets in an effort to help rid the shame that HIV/AIDS carriers may feel.
"Thousands of children are needlessly dying because they are too ashamed to talk about HIV and seek support," the charity captioned the video. "That's why on World AIDS Day, Sentebale launched the #FeelNoShame campaign, which celebrates the sharing of secrets - spreading the word that eradicating stigma and shame, saves lives."
Prince Harry then spoke very intimately about his struggles with public speaking, especially while sporting a suit.
"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," he said. "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," Prince William's brother added. "But, thank you very much for everyone who's taken part, and I must encourage as many people to get involved as possible."
