Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have not released a statement about the Queen's 70th anniversary for her Accession Day.

On the eve of the celebration, Queen Elizabeth II announced that Camilla will be "queen consort" when Prince Charles becomes king. The Duke of Sussex seemingly broke his silence by promoting his mom Princess Diana's efforts against HIV.

The Duke of Sussex paid tribute to his mom Princess Diana by raising HIV and Aids awareness. He spoke to former Wales rugby captain Gareth Thomas about his passion for advocating HIV which his late mom started.

"Once you get to meet people and you see the suffering around the world, I certainly can't turn my back on that," Prince Harry was quoted by The Sun as saying. "Then add in the fact that my mum's work was unfinished, I feel obligated to try and continue that as much as possible. I've got to finish the job."

Prince Harry also urged the people to follow his example and get an HIV test. In 2016, the duke took one alongside Rihanna and it worked because the number of people requesting from the Terrence Higgins Trust increased by 500 percent.

Meghan Markle's husband said the virus used to be a death sentence. However, it has become a "manageable disease" though "stigma still exists and therefore the testing is still a problem."

The outlet noted that Prince Harry's tribute to his mom came after the Queen made an announcement showing public support for his stepmother Camilla.
