Like his late mother Princess Diana, Prince Harry is tirelessly putting his name and efforts toward charitable causes.
The 26-year-old English royal was presented with the Golden Heart gong for his work with Sentebale, a charity that helps African children left orphans by parents who died as a result of HIV and AIDS.
“I feel hugely humble,” the red-headed royal said at a party in Berlin, Germany, where he was given the honor. “Compared to so many people who devote their whole lives to restoring hope to children around the world, I have done very little.
“As far as I’m concerned, I am receiving your award on their behalf, not mine,” he said.
Princess Di was a forerunner in the fight against HIV and AIDS via her charity work. She was frequently photographed alongside those afflicted, in hopes of eliminating misconceptions the public held at the time regarding how communicable the disease is.
“HIV does not make people dangerous to know,” she once said. “You can shake their hands and give them hugs. Heaven knows they need it.”
