London - Prince Harry has spent the night in a giant freezer to simulate the conditions he will face when he treks to the South Pole this winter.
The 29-year-old royal, who will race with a team of injured British servicemen and women against groups from the United States and the Commonwealth, spent around 20 hours in a cold chamber where he was subjected to temperatures of -35 Celsius, with wind speeds of 72km per hour.
Alongside four teammates — all amputees who lost limbs after sustaining injuries in Afghanistan — Harry tested the clothing he will wear on the 320km expedition and learned how to avoid frostbite.
When asked Tuesday what the worst part of his overnight experience was, Harry joked: "Going in".
