Look at this scamp. It’s a press conference for charity and he could be sitting on a couch, belching, for all you’d know from his body language. This, of course, is why we love Harry. He’s the messy one.
It was announced today that Harry will join a group of wounded veterans from the UK, the US, and the Commonwealth on an expedition to the South Pole as part of the Walking With The Wounded South Pole Allied Challenge. Harry is part of Team Glenfiddich. Well, of course he is. And in addition to whiskey, he managed to work some beer into the conversation too:
"It just remains for me to say to Soldier On Canada, Soldiers To Summits from the US and Soldier On Australia - welcome to the party. As a member of the British team, I will have a brew ready for you when you join us at the Pole."
But it wasn’t all party Harry styles. He spoke seriously too:
"But the aim remains the same - to enable our wounded to do what they and all other servicemen and women do better than anyone else I know - meet a challenge head-on and overcome it and inspire others to do the same. Ladies and gentlemen, these men and women have given their all in the cause of freedom, in our cause. That they should once again step into the breach - this time facing down the extreme physical and mental challenges of trekking to the South Pole - just underlines their remarkable qualities."
Harry is seated next to his teammates, “Sergeant Duncan Slater, 34, who lost both his legs in a blast in Afghanistan in 2009; Major Kate Philp, 34, who lost her left leg after a bomb blast in 2008; Captain Guy Disney, 31, who lost his right leg in a rocket attack in 2009; and Captain Ibrar Ali, who lost his right arm in a roadside bomb in 2007”. The trip will take place in November and December.
