Prince Harry has joined wounded servicemen in the Arctic where he will take part in a trek to the North Pole. The third in line to the throne will be fully integrated into the team’s final preparations and first five days of the gruelling expedition. As patron of the Walking With The Wounded charity, he will sleep out on the ice and drag a 220lb sled in temperatures set to plummet to -25C.
Lately he jumped into ice-cold water to try out his immersion suit. After he took the plunge, Harry said: “It’s quite tight on the balls!”
Asked if he was ready for the challenge, Harry said: “Not as ready as these guys are, but I’m just here to give them as much support as possible. I haven’t had as much time to train.”
