Broken toe won't stop Prince Harry from making South Pole trek

LONDON, Oct. 28 (UPI) -- British Prince Harry says a broken toe won't stop him from making a 208-mile charity expedition across the South Pole.

The 29-year-old royal fractured his toe in a minor incident, The Mirror reported.


The newspaper did not say how or when the incident happened.

However, a spokesman from Kensington Palace said: "He's fractured his toe but the South Pole trip is very much on."

During November and December, Harry will lead a team in a race across the antarctic plateau to benefit injured British servicemen and women.

They will be racing against a team from the United States, headed by actor Alexander Skarsgard, star of the hit HBO series "True Blood," and a team representing the Commonwealth, led by English actor Dominic West, from the TV series "The Wire."
