Prince Harry, accompanied by members of the Walking with the Wounded charity, reached South Pole sojourn on December 13, 2013. Even the royal noted the coincidence of the day of their arrival. “A half-day on Friday and we get to the South Pole on Friday 13th, unlucky for some, lucky for us,” Prince Harry said in a voice blog, according to the BBC. The team walked for 322 kilometers to make it to the South Pole, pulling sleds for more than three weeks.
