Prince Harry has made a private visit to the HIV hospital where his mother helped to break down the stigma surrounding the illness by kissing an Aids patient.The prince, who celebrates his 32nd birthday on Thursday, took a tour of Mildmay hospital in East London on Friday, nine months after paying a public visit to the facility.Diana, Princess of Wales, was the first member of the Royal Family to have contact with a person suffering from HIV/Aids.In the late 1980s, when many still believed the disease could be contracted through casual contact, she sat on the sickbed of a man with Aids and held his hand.Both publicly and privately she supported the work of those helping patients, with late-night trips to Mildmay, and serving as patron of the NAT (National Aids Trust).
