So Prince Harry And Rihanna’s HIV Test Got A Little Awkward

Prince Harry was grilled on his sex life whilst raising awareness for World Aids Day with Rihanna in Bridgetown...

Prince Harry and Rihanna teamed up for a very worthwhile cause yesterday in Barbados when they raised awareness for World Aids Day.

The royal and the Bajan beauty both took HIV tests at a drop-in centre in Bridgetown in front of cameras for the 50th anniversary of Barbados independence. had to dodge some pretty awkward questions about the sex lives of the Royal Family while he and Rihanna took HIV tests in Barbados.

Sharing a snap of herself and Haz, with RiRi dressed in super wide leg pinstripe trousers and a white shirt and Harry looking cool in grey trousers and a white shirt, Rihanna wrote: ‘Teamed up with Prince Harry today and got tested to raise awareness for #WorldAIDSDay. It’s so important to know your status! Get tested. #ProTESTHIV.’

But whilst the pair were all smiles for the snaps, things soon got very awkward when the subject of sex came up.

HIV counsellor Fabian Sargeant, who’s also a social worker, cracked a joke about how it was apt that the celebrities were getting HIV tested in a barber shop, as it’s normally the place where people spill the juicy details of their personal lives.

Piping up, Harry quipped in agreement: ‘Everybody tells their hairdresser everything.’

However, cheeky Mr Sargeant decided to jump on the sexy topic by discussing the common myths around sex in Caribbean culture, stating to Harry: ‘One of the myths is that royalty don’t have sex..?’

Narrowly dodging the loaded question, Harry, who’s currently dating Meghan Markle, replied with: ‘And that royalty has blue blood?’

Nice swerve.

But Fabian wasn’t done yet. ‘Another myth is that royalty does not engage in oral sex?’ he then retorted, much to the shock of the surrounding crowd.

Ever the charmer, Harry managed to avoid the awkward moment by simply pointing at the barber chair and laughing: ‘‘I’m not sitting in that chair!’.


Both Harry and Rihanna were there to encourage people – and particularly men, who have been highlighted as being significantly high risk in Barbados by the Barbados National HIV/Aids programme – to get tested.

And the Prince, who also got tested earlier this year in London to raise awareness, has even admitted in the past to feeling nervous about receiving the result.

Way to go, you two.
