The ice prince
Prince Harry is now in Antarctica to get ready for the race to the South Pole. The prince is patron of the British team taking part in the event and, like the US and Commonwealth teams, he's now spending several days getting used to the temperatures and altitude that will surround him for the next four weeks. He's hoping to reach the Pole by December 17th and already has the makings of a polar explorer beard. Just the makings. Here's hoping that's just a few days' growth - given that he's descended from Edward VII and George V who sported two of the most famous royal beards in history, it's not his best effort.
