In a new ITV documentary, Prince Harry will take part in the Walking With The Wounded South Pole Allied Challenge – a brutal 200km trek to the South Pole in extreme conditions.
“I’m terrified for myself to be honest, hugely daunted,” said Harry before the event. “I can’t even begin to imagine what it’s going to be like for them. And you know to take a double amputee to the South Pole it’s really going to be really quite a moving moment when we get there. For me, it’s bigger than just these guys, we are trying to raise money but also raise awareness for the fact that the injuries they have sustained they are going to carry for the rest of their lives.”
Prince Harry walked with the British team, including double leg amputee Duncan Slater, arm amputee Ibrar Ali MC, left leg amputee Kate Philp, right leg amputee Guy Disney and guide Conrad Dickinson.
Against the stunning and dangerous Antarctica backdrop, Harry’s South Pole Heroes will uncover the emotional stories of wounded servicemen and women across the world, and each individual’s battle to overcome life changing injuries.
The two-part documentary Harry’s South Pole Heroes starts Sunday 16 March at 8pm on ITV.
