Prince Harry is featured on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of British GQ magazine along side members of the Walking with the Wounded team that is planning an unaided walk to the North Pole in an effort to raise money for a charity that benefits British military servicemen and women. Henry is featured on 2 different covers for the mag … which you can check out below.
In a world exclusive for the May issue, GQ meets Prince Harry and the Walking with the Wounded team as they prepare for their epic unaided trek to the North Pole, in an attempt to raise £2 million for charities focusing on the retraining and rehabilitation of injured British service personnel. The team, including four wounded servicemen injured in Afghanistan, have been given a 40 to 60 per cent chance of succeeding by polar experts, so with the odds stacked against them, they discuss the motivation behind the trip with GQ. Prince Harry is Patron of Walking with the Wounded, and the team comprises Captain Guy Disney, Private Jaco van Gass, Sergeant Steve Young, Captain Martin Hewitt, Founders Edward Parker and Simon Dalglish, Logistics and Training Guide Henry Cookson, and Polar Guide Inge Solheim. Harry and the team were photographed by David Bailey in January 2011. A special edition front cover will feature HRH Prince Harry, with a donation from each issue sold going to the Walking with the Wounded charity.
What a great event! I understand that Prince Henry will only participate in a portion of the trek to the North Pole because he has to be back in London for his big brother’s wedding next month. I have no doubt that the Walking with the Wounded team will raise the £2 million they are hoping for … and more! Henry looks great on this cover, as do his Walking with the Wounded compatriots. I might have to get me a couple copies of this particular issue of GQ ;) Click HERE to read the full online version of GQ’s feature article on Prince Harry and Walking with the Wounded.
