We want to be in a tent with Prince Harry!
As if we didn't love him already, Prince Harry is currently making a 200-mile trek across Antartica to the South Pole. How cool is that? Cameras caught the royal and some other adventurers during a bit of down time before they reach the South Pole.
The 29-year-old, who is patron of the Walking With The Wounded expedition, said:
"A half day on Friday and we get to the South Pole on Friday 13th - unlucky for some, lucky for us. … The wind has dropped down, which is nice. I think everyone is feeling a bit tired but slowly getting into the rhythm. Only just got into the rhythm now and it has almost finished."
Originally, the red-headed royal was part of a British group racing to the South Pole against other teams from England and the US, but the team decided to suspend the competitive element of the trek. However, over the weekend the competition was stopped after some of the trekkers, who include injured servicemen and women, became very tired upon coming across difficult terrain.
Ed Parker, who is the expedition's director and a co-founder of the WWTW charity, said: "Everyone is beginning to get quite excited, we can see the end in sight now."
Well we definitely love seeing Harry looking all rough and tumble! Fingers crossed that the team finished their trip safely!
