Prince Harry

No worries, Prince Harry: You look great.

The young royal continued on his charitable duties this week by stepping out tonight in London to support MapAction, a charity he champions that works to deliver vital information in mapped form to disaster-aid agencies after catastrophes. (Sounds pretty intense, right?)

Harry, looking dapper as ever, wore a navy blue suit with a blue button-down and deep red tie.

"MapAction harnesses technology to a powerful volunteer ethos," Harry says on MapAction's website. "They are a real asset to the humanitarian cause. I'm proud to be their patron."

According to the organization's website, after a disaster, these "humanitarian mappers" go into the area and create a digital operational map with information, such as which areas remain unreached, where the relief supplies are and who are the people in greatest need. This is shared with volunteers and aid agencies so they can make decisions about where and how to deliver assistance quickly.

This event is just one stop of many to come in Prince Harry's near future.

Kensington Palace announced on Monday that the 29-year-old royal will attend the International Fleet Review in Sydney, Australia, on Saturday, Oct. 5, where he will embark upon the HMAS Leeuwin ship with Governor-General of Australia Quentin Bryce, Prime Minister Tony Abbott and Vice Admiral Ray Griggs, who is currently the Chief of Navy.

A few days later, Prince William's younger brother will attend the Sentebale "Forget Me Not" dinner in Dubai on Monday, Oct. 7 at the JW Marriott Marquis Hotel.

In between all of this, Harry finds time to train for the upcoming Walking With the Wounded South Pole Allied Challenge. Alongside four teammates, all of which were injured in Afghanistan, Harry practiced setting up camp in sub-zero temperatures with wind speeds up to 45 miles per hours.

How? He spent 24 hours in an ice chamber.

Talk about dedication.
