It would be good to see Harry on the 4 week trek, if he can have time off from his Army commitments

That's one thing that I enjoy about the Wales brothers: the teasing directed at each other during their speeches.

I love how age doesn't affect his comments, I agree with Mermaid1962.

Prince Harry is to trek to the north pole with some Army amputees in April. He will join them for the last 5 days before attending his brothers wedding. It will be the first time amputees will have reached the north pole unsupported if they succeed. heres a link ...

BBC News - Wounded war veterans ready for North Pole challenge

I'd say good luck to all of them

It reminds me when Jan Mela, young Polish teenager reached the North Pole and later the South Pole. He was supported by veteran Polish polar explorer Marek Kamiński.

I agree and I think that Prince Harry has really found his niche in life in regards to his charity work. I also can't wait to see the pictures from the event.

One thing I do admire about Harry and his brother is that when they get involved with something, they really get involved rather than snipping ribbons and making speeches. This is a trait I think they both got from their mother. Actions speak much louder than words.

You do realise that in the 1970s the Prince who did the action type activites was Prince Charles, followed in the 1980s by Andrew. Philip had also done the action type activities in the 1950s and 1960s.

Diana did a lot of things to get involved but the royals have been getting in and getting things done for a long time - long before Diana.

Let's not forget Anne, who was getting involved in places like Africa long before Diana as well.

I do think that they get their involvement from both parents as Charles is very hands-on with the Princes Trust, but he isn't glamorous and so doesn't get the credit for the work he has done for over 30 years with that charity.

Once again you set me straight.. thanks! I do have to admit that the boys both probably got a lot of their passionate nature about things from their dad who is most definitely known to be very passionate and involved with what he holds dear.

Prince Harry: 'Walking With the Wounded' Expedition to the North Pole - Mar-Apr 2011

From the Prince of Wales website.

Prince Harry to join Walking with the Wounded Expedition to the North Pole, 29th March - 5th April

25th March 2011
Prince Harry will join a team of wounded military servicemen at the start of their expedition to trek unaided to the Geographic North Pole. The Prince - Patron of the charity Walking with the Wounded - will join the group at their base camp in Longyearbyen, north Norway on 29th March, where he will undertake three days of training with the team. The Prince will then trek with the team for five days as they commence their expedition high above the Arctic Circle. Prince Harry will depart the ice on 5th April, to return to the United Kingdom for continued military training.
The Walking with the Wounded team includes four wounded soldiers, who have suffered life-changing injuries during active service, including two amputees. They will be accompanied by two expedition leaders and a Norwegian polar guide. Their four week expedition will see the team covering up to 200 miles of the frozen Arctic Ocean by foot, pulling their own equipment in sleds weighing in excess of 100kg and in temperatures that can drop to minus 60.
The Walking with the Wounded Expedition supports other charities that help injured soldiers rebuild their lives. The money raised from this expedition will be used for educational courses and training programmes to aid rehabilitation back into ordinary life.

The Press Association: Harry star of trek magazine cover

This should be a link to Prince Harry's GQ cover. I really like the picture of him. It is also nice that some of the proceeds from the sales of the magazine will go to charity. Can't wait to see more pictures of the event.

You know what I really like about the second photo; he's not the star of it, he's just one of the guys. I know thats how he thinks of himself. And the first picture, well, he's just ridiculously handsome isn't he?
