Harry and Meghan’s visit was due to his passion on raising the awareness of HIV/AIDS and preventing youth crime.  The couple spoke with people who work for The Terrence Higgins Trust (the largest voluntary sector provider of HIV and sexual health services in the UK) as a way to educate themselves on helping people with the disease.
