Harry, 33, and Markle, 36, visited Reprezent, a radio station that provides educational and training programs for at-risk teens in the community.

The pair visited a Terrence Higgins Trust World AIDS Day charity fair Dec. 1, a poignant reminder of the work so closely associated with Harry’s mother, the late Princess of Wales.
