Rihanna and Prince Harry both celebrated Barbados’ 50 years of independence from British rule. Rihanna joined the Toast of the Nation and performed at an evening concert.
This celebration represented a huge privilege for Britain’s Prince Harry. “I am honored to be here representing my grandmother, as we celebrate the historic milestone of 50 years of independence of this beautiful nation. Her Majesty visited your beautiful country on the eve of independence in early 1966. The people of Barbados have held a special place in her heart ever since,” said Prince Harry in an interview.
One day after the event, Riri and Prince Harry met and together they raised awareness and encouraged people around the world to get HIV tested, by doing so themselves, on World AIDS Day.
