Prince Harry says he’ll beat US to South Pole

LONDON (AP) — Prince Harry says he will take part in a race to the South Pole, leading a team of wounded British military personnel against counterparts from Australia, Canada, and the United States.

In a tongue-in-cheek challenge to his competitors, the 28-year-old royal said Friday that he would have a cup of tea “ready for you when you join us at the Pole.”

Harry and his fellow teammates are taking part in the 208-mile (335-kilometer) Walking With The Wounded South Pole Allied Challenge in November and December of this year — at the height of the Antarctic summer.
