Prince Harry's sex life was a topic of conversation when he traveled to Barbados in 2016 to raise HIV and AIDS awareness with pop star Rihanna. 


Back in 2016, a young Prince Harry visited Barbados to celebrate the Queen's 90th birthday. During this trip which took place before Prince Harry married the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, the Prince met Rihanna, and the two advocated for AIDS and HIV testing.

Rihanna and the Prince made two appearances together. One on stage at the 50th anniversary of Barbados' Independence and two days later when they got tested at an HIV drop-in center to mark World Aids Day. 

According to Express, the Prince was awkwardly quizzed about his sex life by an HIV counsellor when he and Rihanna were HIV tested in front of a crowd.

Reportedly, Fabian Sargeant, an HIV counsellor and social worker, explained to the royal and the popstar that the best place to raise awareness about the need for HIV testing is a barbershop as people open up about what's going on in their lives including their sex lives.

"I need to go to a barbershop!" Rihanna responded to the counsellor. The singer then quickly interjected and said, "Not for sex!" as she wagged her finger.

Prince Harry responded to the counsellor saying, “Everybody tells the hairdresser everything.”

After some laughter, Fabian asked the Prince some of the sex-related myths that surround the royal family.

“One of the myths is that royalty don’t have sex?” asked the social worker. Prince Harry responded by changing the subject and asking, “And that royalty has blue blood?”

Without being deterred the counsellor asked, “Another myth is that royalty does not engage in oral sex?” Prince Harry laughed and hastily responded without answering the question, “I’m not sitting in that chair!”

Prince Harry's work with AIDS testing is a continuation of his mother, Princess Diana's charity work and only recently Prince Harry narrated a film for World AIDS Day that paid tribute to his mother's work.

Prince Harry's father, Prince Charles, recently visited Barbados to watch as the Queen was removed as the Head of State.

While in attendance at this historic event as the Caribbean island welcomed its first-ever President, Prince Charles appeared to fall asleep which sparked concern from royal fans who were concerned about his health.

Despite reports that the Queen and Prince Charles felt 'sadness' and ‘regret’ over this severed tie to the monarchy, the Queen spoke about being replaced as Head of State and graciously sent her congratulations to the new Republic.
