They made it! After weather delays grounded Prince Harry and his Walking With The Wounded team in South Africa and safety concerns forced the group to quit racing, they have finally made it to the South Pole!
The 200-mile trek took the four teams, from the U.K., U.S., Australia, and Canada, four weeks to complete, and according to the Prince, the group will be busy celebrating their “amazing accomplishment” tonight.
"I think we'll be having a few whiskies tonight and then everyone's looking forward to getting home," Harry wrote on the Walking With The Wounded charity blog. “It’s an amazing feeling, it really is.”
The group battled temperatures of 58 degrees below zero and pulled all of their provisions on sleds through the frozen tundra.
Harry has frequently expressed his admiration for the veterans participating and did not hesitate to heap on the praise once again when they reached the South Pole.
"It will prove to everybody that there's so much that can be made possible when you think that nothing is left," he said of the veterans, who have all suffered war injuries.
"I'm so proud, I'm so chuffed and I'm so privileged to be here with all these guys and girls …”
And the best news? Harry will be home in plenty of time to celebrate the holidays with his family (and see girlfriend Cressida Bonas!)
