What a stellar accomplishment!
Though Prince Harry couldn't be with them when they reached the summit (he climbed with them for four days before flying back to England to prepare for his brother's wedding), his team reached the North Pole over the weekend - and we've got video of their amazing journey to the top of the world.
Check out the report from Good Morning America, featuring the brave men of the Walking With The Wounded charity, as they reach the North Pole (after the jump)!
There's also a bit of Harry talking about his brother's soon-to-be bride!

Prince Harry is braving the cold weather in Norway right now, training with the team that he will travel with through the north pole.
They’re basically just practicing living in cold weather, which includes sleeping in tents… in freezing cold weather.
We admire what he’s doing so much!

Prince Harry has announced that he will be joining a team of wounded military servicemen on a hike through the North Pole, as part of a charity called Walking With The Wounded, despite it being only weeks before his brother Prince William's royal wedding to Kate Middleton!
According to a representative from St. James Palace:
"The Prince — Patron of the charity Walking with the Wounded — will join the group at their base camp in in Longyearbyen, north Norway on March 29, 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."
He'll depart on April 5th while the rest of the team continues on for another three weeks!
Such an amazing cause! We bet it's going to be one of those experiences that you never forget!
So brave! Best of luck to everyone going out there to participate!
Get home safe, bb, so we can see you all spiffed out as best man on the big day!

Not to be outdone by his brother’s engagement, Prince Harry is planning to join a group of disabled veterans as they ski across the North Pole.
The veterans are making the 200 mile trip to raise awareness for a charity that helps veterans who have been seriously hurt or lost limbs in combat.
This sounds dangerous! Be careful, bb!!
