After the announcement of their engagement, Prince Harry and actress Meghan Markle chose a World AIDS Day event as the site of their first royal outing.
The couple attended a #SeeRed event in Nottingham, England, which was organized by the HIV charity Terrence Higgins Trust. “We mustn’t be complacent. We’ve got everything here: all the equipment, all the testing ability,” he said, according to PinkNews. “We owe it to this generation to be able to eradicate this once and for all.”

Harry follows in his mother’s footsteps, becoming a passionate advocate for HIV/AIDS issues, even having teamed up with the Terrence Higgins Trust as recently as last month at their launch of a pop-up testing site to commemorate HIV Testing Week.
“We’re delighted to welcome Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to Nottingham Contemporary, for a #SeeRed event to mark World AIDS Day,” said Ian Green, CEO of Terrence Higgins Trust to PinkNews. “We’re really looking forward to introducing both him and Meghan to some wonderful individuals and groups who help to combat HIV stigma in the UK.”
Though it’s their first outing since the announcement of their engagement, Markle will soon become a familiar face next to Harry, as she chooses to leave her Hollywood life behind for royal responsibilities.
