Prince Harry has arrived in Antarctica and is one step closer to beginning his South Pole trek.
The 29-year-old royal touched down at Novolazarevskaya Station, Antarctica on Friday, Nov. 22 after poor weather conditions forced his team, Walking With the Wounded, to stay in Cape Town, South Africa for an extra 48 hours.
The teams—Soldier On (Australia and Canada), Soldiers to Summit (United States of America) and Walking with the Wounded (United Kingdom)—will now begin to acclimatize their bodies to the extreme conditions at the airbase, located at the edge of the Antarctic continent before beginning their expedition to the South Pole.
The journey will begin from 87 degrees south on Nov. 30 with the groups hoping to reach the geographic South Pole by Dec. 16.
