The popular royal, looking dashing in a tuxedo, was there to accept the legacy award on behalf of Princess Diana, and he spoke about her determination to raise the profile of HIV, with the aim to change the perception and lessen ignorance on the issue.
Prince Harry was introduced on stage by Ian Walker, and Julian La Bastide, both individuals who experienced meeting the princess in the years of her activist work.
Prince Harry, 33, and Prince William, 35, have vowed to carry on their mother's work and legacy. "She knew that the misunderstanding of this relatively new disease was creating a risky situation when mixed with homophobia", he continued.
The Princess made headlines around the world in April 1987 when she opened the UK's first purpose-built HIV/Aids unit that exclusively cared for patients infected with the virus, shaking the hand of a man living with the virus, without wearing gloves, as she did so. "She did not live to see this treatment become widely available and save countless lives in the United Kingdom and around the world".
The prince said he and his brother, the Duke of Cambridge, were "incredibly proud of what our mother achieved".
He added that he believes if she were still here today, she would still be fighting for the rights and lives of HIV/AIDS patience.
