Prince Harry has tested for HIV on an internet live stream to raise awareness about the disease.

The five minute broadcast was the British royal family’s first attempt at using Facebook Live and it was meant to highlight how easy it was for the general public to verify their HIV status.

According to the prince, it is important for young people to check their status so that the massive gains already made can be improved upon.

"Whether you're a man, woman, gay, straight, black, white, even ginger; why wouldn't you come in and get a test?" the prince said.

The 31 year old is following in footsteps of his late mother, Princess Diana who worked and interacted closely with people living with virus.

 

The quick finger prick test was carried out at Burrell Street sexual health clinic in central London by health adviser Robert Palmer.

Durban, South Africa is hosting a five day HIV conference which starts on Monday July 18. Prince Harry, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon and singer Elton John will be part of the 18,000 delegates expected to attend the conference.

The prince tested negative for the virus.
