Prince Harry undertakes polar walk

Prince Harry and his fellow adventurers have reached the South Pole as part of their Walking With The Wounded charity trek. The Virgin Money South Pole Allied Challenge 2013, of which Prince Harry is patron, saw the participants race across three degrees to the South Pole. The twelve injured service personnel from Britain, America, Canada and Australia have overcome life-changing injuries and undertook challenging training programmes to prepare themselves for the conditions in Antarctica. Trekking around 15km to 20km per day, the teams endured temperatures as low as minus 45C and 50mph winds as they pulled their 70kg sleds to the south pole.
