Prince Harry’s ‘mission success’
Prince Harry is proud he reached the South Pole with disfigured soldiers on a charity trek.
The 29-year-old British royal spent the last four weeks walking over 200 miles with 12 injured servicemen in Antarctica for charity Walking With The Wounded.
Harry is moved by the strength and courage it took for his team to make it through the long and frigid journey.
“It’s an amazing feeling, it really is,” he wrote in a blog post on the Walking With The Wounded website after reaching the South Pole.
“Every single one of these 12 deserves it. I mean they have dug out blind to get here, Duncan you know, it’s just remarkable the fact that someone with no legs has made it here, and to have done it in record breaking time, no doubt.
“And Ivan as well, when I look across I see him being guided around you know, totally blind, from America, and absolutely hates the cold, and you know he’s not doing it for himself, he’s doing it for his buddies back home, and that goes for everybody, every single one here.”
Now that the South Pole trek has been dubbed a “mission success”, Harry and the team will be celebrating their accomplishment with some spirits.
“I think we’ll be having a few whiskies tonight and then everyone’s looking forward to getting home,” he wrote.
Prince Harry is said to be eager to get back to his girlfriend Cressida Bonas.
The pair have been dating for around 18 months, with engagement rumours rife recently.
Harry even allegedly met with her father to announce his intentions to marry the 24-year-old beauty.
“It’s always scary meeting your girlfriend’s father, but Harry knows how close Cressida is to her family. He wants to ensure they’re on-board for when they announce an engagement,” an insider explained to British magazine Grazia recently.
