Princes William and Harry back gay-run HIV charity

LONDON -- Britain’s pin-up Princes, William and Harry, have been asked to be ambassadors for the country’s leading HIV charity, Terrence Higgins Trust (THT).

The organization was started when Terry Higgins became one of the first to die of AIDS in the UK three decades ago. It was founded by his partner Rupert Whitaker and their friends.

Now the gay-run charity is celebrating its 30th anniversary. And William, Duke of Cambridge and his playboy brother Prince Harry have sent a message of support.

In response, the charity has said it would love them to become "ambassadors" for THT.

They are following in the footsteps of their mother, Princess Diana, who was one of the trust’s early celebrity supporters. Her willingness to meet and hold hands with those suffering from AIDS changed public attitudes to both the virus and the royal family.
