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!
