Prince Harry will join a team of four injured British soldiers as they compete against teams from the Commonwealth and the United States in the 200-mile Walking with the Wounded charity trek. Preparing for their Sunday departure, the teams met today in Trafalgar Square in London to take a look at the trophy they are all competing for. The teams will fly on Sunday from the United Kingdom to South Africa before flying to Novolazarevskaya Station in Antarctica on November 19th. They will spend a few days there to get used to the conditions. They will then fly 87 degrees south where they will spend more time acclimatizing. Their trek to the South Pole will begin on November 30th with hopes of reaching it by December 16th.
