Prince Harry admitted he was a little nervous going on the Royal Family's Facebook Live video on Thursday morning, but that's because he was getting a quick—but necessary—procedure done in front of hundreds of thousands of people. 

For the video, the young Royal got tested for HIV at the Burrell Street Sexual Health Centre in London. The whole video took just about five minutes. With HIV rates rising in U.K., Harry said he wants to destigmatize the very important test.

"Even being the person I am and knowing the type of people I'm around, I'm still nervous. Which is interesting," he said in the vid.

The prince took the test, and it came back negative. So easy!

"If you're a man, woman, gay, straight, black, white, whatever—even ginger—why wouldn't you come and have a test?" he said. Prince Harry has previously said that he wants to follow in the steps of his mother, the late Princess Diana, who worked with HIV and AIDS awareness.
