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.

Very cool. Good for him. If he can't fight with them, he certainly can walk with them.

Prince Harry laughs off -40C temperatures warning during North Pole trek | Mail Online

He's hot again. Needs to lay off the beer more, no need for the blowness in the face.

I don't understand the comment? The "blowness" in the face? If you are referring to the redness, Harry has naturally fair skin and with the cold environment that is contributing to his look. I don't think beer has anything to do with this particular look.

Thanks for the article though. I wonder if there is a video out there.

I think it's wonderful (and brave) that Harry is doing this trek. I hope they reach their goal in fundraising for charity.

No, he looked a bit bloated lately. Not referring to the newest pics.
