Prince Harry is terrified of public speaking

Britain's Prince Harry is terrified of making speeches and is a nervous wreck before appearing in public.

The royal promised to reveal an embarrassing secret about himself as part of the Feel No Shame campaign on World Aids Day on Monday (01Dec14).


He has since released a short video clip in which he confesses to being crippled with nerves ahead of public engagements, particularly when he has to make a speech.


He says, "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'm wearing a suit... Now I have confessed that, I'll probably be even more worried that people are looking at me."
