Prince Harry welcomed 3,000 fans to Kensington Palace in London on Tuesday night for a concert benefiting Sentebale, a charity for children founded by Prince Harry and Prince Seeiso of Lesotho in 2006. In addition to raising funds, the concert on the palace’s East Lawn raised awareness of the challenges faced by young people affected by HIV/AIDS in sub-Saharan Africa.
Coldplay closed the show with a 10-song set, with Prince Harry accompanying the British band for its hit “Up&Up.”
Singer Chris Martin took the stage in his trademark Jordan Spizike kicks — the same sneakers he wore when Coldplay performed during the 2016 Super Bowl Halftime Show.

“What we know is that HIV is a virus that thrives off silence and feeds on stigma. Every single one of us has a responsibility to educate ourselves,” Prince Harry said onstage. “To do what we can to speak out and stamp out the silence, ignorance and fear that the virus needs to win. We must follow the example of the young people of Lesotho, and meet one of the great challenges of our generation with optimism, energy and openness. That’s what tonight is all about. When people come together for a purpose we can achieve extraordinary things.”
Other performers included Nico and Vinz, the Basotho Youth Choir and Sentebale ambassador Joss Stone.
