Charming Prince Harry slipped into his tux for a dinner tonight in support of Walking With The Wounded's race to the South Pole. Harry will be joining the British team, and competing against teams of wounded warriors from the USA and the Commonwealth.
Harry grinned with some of his fellow polar explorers before the event, which featured entertainment from Ellie Goulding and The Stereophonics, who looked starstruck when the met the young royal.
Harry, 28, has made support for the military, veterans and the wounded a key theme of his royal patronage. His tour to the US revolved around the Warrior Games for wounded servicemen.
"Tonight is all about creating opportunities," he said in an off-the-cuff speech, adding that when the wars are forgotten, the casualties remain.
Harry and his teammates, who all except him have either physical or cognitive injuries sustained in the line of duty, will cover more than 200 miles in total.
They face treks of around 10 miles per day through temperatures as low as -45°C and battling 50mph winds as while pulling heavy sledges.
