Prince Harry and Rihanna getting tested for World AIDS Day is the cutest thing on the internet
What happens when a prince meets a Bajan bad gal? Naturally, the prince gazes into her green eyes before embracing her in a warm hug, becomes mesmerized with the halo circling her majesty, they hang out for the rest of the night, and she puts him on to the best Bajan ganja in all the land. At least that’s how we imagined the magical moment when Prince Harry had the honor of meeting Rihanna in her home country of Barbados.
Prince Harry is currently on a Caribbean tour on behalf of the Queen, where he’ll reportedly carry out 14 days of official engagements. On Wednesday, he met Rihanna during his stop in Barbados, which we’re going to assume was the highlight of his trip. Because who doesn’t want to meet Rihanna. According to The Daily Express, Prince Harry only had 20 minutes notice that he was meeting the pop star. “Hello, it’s very nice to meet you,” he said. It’s very nice to meet you is the understatement of the year, Prince Harry. It’s fucking fantastic to meet Rihanna. But at least he was rendered speechless looking at all that beauty before him.
Later Wednesday evening, the two celebrated the 50th anniversary of Barbados’ independence at the Golden Anniversary Spectacular Mega Concert, where the two sat together and were all smiles. Look at those smiles! Reporter Richard Palmer tweeted that the crowd was more excited to see Rihanna than the prince. Sounds about right. Prince Harry’s cool and all, but… Rihanna.
On Thursday, Rih joined the prince for the Barbados National HIV/AIDS Commission’s “Man Aware” event in recognition of World AIDS Day. The event took place in Barbados’ capital city, Bridgetown. In honor of World AIDS Day, and to ease the stigma associated with the disease, both partook in getting tested. The results were negative. “It’s better that everyone goes and gets tested,” Harry said. “Why wouldn’t you? Whether you’re a man, woman, gay, straight, black, white, whatever, even ginger, why wouldn’t you come and have a test?”
Rihanna, being the jokester that she is, made the moment much more light hearted. “Oh, that’s not bad,” she said, turning to Harry after her finger was pricked. “You made it seem like it hurt.”
Now that the world knows this pair’s current HIV status and we’ve seen them smile, laugh, and hug, we can conclusively say that Rihanna and Prince Harry together is the cutest thing you’ll see on the internet. We’ve also realized that whenever Rihanna settles down, nothing less than a prince will do.
