LONDON (AP) - Britain’s Prince Harry has taken a nearly instant HIV test as part of his campaign to raise awareness about the virus.

The results of the simple finger-prick test were negative and Harry seemed relieved to find that he was not infected with the virus. Harry admitted before the test that he was nervous.

The test at a sexual health clinic in London was filmed and broadcast Thursday. It takes only a few seconds and a small amount of blood for the test to be carried out.

Harry has followed the example of his late mother, Princess Diana, and sought to ease the stigma surrounding HIV and AIDS.
