Prince Harry and Rihanna helped raise awareness of HIV screening by getting tested for the virus together in Barbados.
On World Aids Day, Prince Harry and singer Rihanna chose to publicize the importance of being tested by getting tested themselves.
The pair went for the simple thumb-prick procedure during a visit to a HIV drop-in centre in Barbados' capital Bridgetown on Thursday (December 1).

"We just want to show people how easy it is to get tested and how you shouldn't be afraid of knowing your status", Rihanna said.
Prince Harry said that he believed there had been a "generational gap" around discussing HIV.
"The younger generation coming through want to talk about it. But there's still that stigma", he said.
"So if us getting tested normalizes it and makes a difference, even a small difference, then job well done".
WELL DONE INDEED!!
GET TESTED! Know YOUR STATUS!
