Prince Harry Breaks Toe Weeks Before South Pole Trek
Prince Harry has vowed to continue with his 208-mile trek across Antarctica despite suffering a foot injury.
Harry, 29, who recently became an uncle to Prince George, broke one of his toes just weeks before he is due to begin the gruelling South Pole expedition.
“Prince Harry has broken his toe in the last few weeks,” a spokesman for the fourth-in-line explained.
“He will not be revealing how it happened, it is a private matter.
“However, there is no doubt about the South Pole trek. He will definitely be going.”
Harry has been training non-stop for the 16-day expedition, which will see him face harsh winds and freezing cold temperatures.
