Harry's deepest secret revealed: Prince says he gets 'ridiculously nervous' about public speaking

He got very publicly naked in Las Vegas and was last seen twerking on a yacht in Abu Dhabi. So it might be thought that Prince Harry has very few secrets left to reveal.
But the fourth in line to the throne admitted today that he still gets ridiculously nervous when asked to speak publicly.
Harry, 30, was confessing all in his role as founder of Sentebale, the charity he set up in 2006 to help children afflicted by HIV and Aids in the poverty-stricken African kingdom of Lesotho.

Prince Harry has revealed that he gets 'ridiculously nervous' about public speaking
Speaking out: Harry hopes the campaign will encourage AIDS sufferers to seek the help they need
Part of a social media campaign to mark World Aids Day, #FeelNoShame aims to encourage celebrities and members of the public to share their deepest secret in a bid to highlight the shame that prevents many HIV sufferers from seeking help.

In his video clip, which can be viewed online, the royal says: 'On today, World Aids Day, my secret is, believe it or not, I get incredibly nervous before public speaking, no matter how big the crowd or the audience.
'Despite the fact that I laugh and joke all the time, I get incredibly nervous, if not anxious, actually, before going into rooms full of people when I am wearing a suit.
‘And now I have confessed that I’ll probably be even more worried that people are looking at me. ‘
The prince’s secret, while not exactly revelatory, is surprising as he has become an increasingly assured speaker with a developing public role in recent years.
Over the summer he launched the inspiring Invictus Games for injured servicemen as with a moving speech in front of thousands and ad-libbed to a sell-out crowd in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park at a closing concert.
