For the past couple of weeks, Prince Harry has been in the thick of a 200 mile hike through Antarctica with Walking With The Wounded and they've had their sites on the South Pole!
Well, the weeks of trekking through the snow and facing freezing temperatures is FINALLY paying off as they're expected to reach their destination on

And obviously when Prince Harry admits to the ploy, he's TOTES JOKING!!
Prince Harry is on his way to the South Pole right now, all to raise awareness for wounded veterans as part of the Walking With the Wounded initiative. He's joined by two other teams in a race to the souther tip, and one of those teams has the boner-inducing Alexander Skarsgård leading the way!
Getting candid about that broken toe, Harry said:

Prince Harry, like we said, is about to go freeze his beautiful balls off for charity — and he's super excited about it!
Five weeks in the freezing cold for a good cause? That's just another day (five weeks?) in Prince Harry's life, because he has kicked off his Walking with the Wounded's South Pole Allied Challenge, which is sending him and two other teams to Antarctica on Sunday for a five-week-long journey to raise awareness for wounded soldiers.
Whoever wins will reap all of the glory — and in the end, all the wounded soldiers win anyway!
Who WOULDN'T flash a smile like that (above)??
Good luck, Prince Harry! Protect your balls! We hope that toe has healed!

Very inspirational…but also very dangerous!
We've just learned that Prince Harry is set to climb Mt. Everest this spring, along with members of his soldier-benefiting charity group Walking With the Wounded.
No official statement has been made regarding this epic adventure, although Harry's spokesman has said that his involvement here will "all depend on his Army commitments."
One of Harry's potential climbing buddies, 21-year-old Mollie Hughes, HAS spoken up on the subject. Here's what she had to say about it:

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!
