Britain's Prince Harry arrived in Antarctica on Friday ahead of a gruelling trek to the South Pole with injured troops.
The 29-year-old royal landed at Novo airbase, near the coast of the frozen continent, after storms delayed his departure from South Africa by two days, according to the Walking With The Wounded charity which has organised the trip.
Speaking at the airbase, Harry, a helicopter gunner with the British army, said it was "nice to be here".
"The weather forecast is supposedly alright, but it seems to be getting worse," he told Sky News.
