Prince Harry attended a “Man Aware” event in Barbados on Thursday during his two-week tour of the Caribbean. He underwent an HIV test in an ongoing effort to “encourage men to get tested and talk about HIV/AIDS,” according to Kensington Palace.
But in a totally badass twist, Rihanna joined Harry at the event to get tested herself. According to a royal reporter on the scene, Harry reassured his new Barbadian pal that she would “hardly feel a thing.”
Harry has done his fair share of work toward de-stigmatizing getting tested. In July, he underwent a live HIV test on Facebook that garnered over two million views and, according to the U.K.-based Terrence Higgins Trust, caused a large spike in orders of a free at-home test as a result.
With Rihanna on board, this awesome move helps promote how easy and important it is to have HIV tests. Good work, you two!
