Prince Harry Shaves Beard Off, Retains Dashing Looks
They reached the South Pole on December 13th, but Team UK gathered together today in London to recap their journey.
A freshly-shaven Prince Harry joined his fellow Walking With The Wounded teammates, some of whom are injured veterans, at the Mandarin Oriental. There, Dominic West revealed one of Harry's very handy skills.
"He seemed to specialise in building latrines," West told members of the press. "He built this incredible castellated structure with blocks to keep out the wind and it even had a loo roll holder."
After inclement weather delayed the race, all three teams (USA, UK and Commonwealth) decided to reach their goal as one.
Former RAF sergeant Duncan Slater became the first double amputee to reach the South Pole. He celebrated by putting his prosthetic legs to use.
"They took some champagne out to the pole and I used my legs as a primitive ice bucket and wedged the bottle in there and passed it around," Slater said. "I don't know how we did it but it went down quite well."
Harry has taken a Staff Officer position in London after completing his attachment to the 3 Regiment Army Air Corps, where he served as an Apache Attack Helicopter Pilot.
The prince's new position will allow him to put together commemorative events and projects involving the army.
