Prince Harry and twelve wounded soldiers have made it to the South Pole.  

The 29-year-old is a member of one of three teams involving injured soldiers that set out two weeks ago on the 320-kilometre Walking with the Wounded South Pole Challenge.

The charity said Friday that the teams arrived at the South Pole at 18:25 a.m. EST.

The prince immediately radioed home with an emotional appreciation of all the soldiers had struggled through…

“We’re here. I am about 10 metres away from the Pole. Everyone is sort of scattered now, we’ve been here for about 20 minutes, maybe half an hour. It’s an amazing feeling, it really is.

“Every single one of these 12 deserves it,” he said.
