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 Friday!
But here’s the thing! This Friday just so happens to be Friday the 13th!!!!
Yikes!! That has to be a bad omen, right?? Well Harry doesn’t seem to think so, as he opened up about the end of his journey, saying:
“Another 11 km to go, to setup camp. One more full day tomorrow and a half day on Friday and we’re going to the South Pole – on Friday the 13th. Unlucky for some, lucky for us.”
Hmmmm. Maybe they have a different meaning for “lucky” in England! LOLz!!
All joking aside, Harry says he and his crew have definitely hit their stride, and they’re ready to make one final push to the finish line:
“Not too bad. Wind has dropped now, which is quite nice. And everyone is feeling a bit tired, but we’re slowly getting into the rhythm. We got into the rhythm and it’s almost finished.”
We can’t even begin to say how amazing it’s been to follow Harry throughout this journey and for him to see it through all the way to the end!
