As part of his training for his upcoming trek across the South Pole, Prince Harry spent the night in an automotive group’s training freezer used for testing military vehicles.

Temperatures inside ranged from approximately minus 31 degrees to almost 70 degrees below zero Fahrenheit, and winds picked up to 45 miles per hour.

He endured the harsh conditions with the men and women who will be accompanying him on the 16-day Antarctic endurance race to raise funds for the charity Walking With the Wounded.

The organization gives rehabilitation aid to soldiers returning from battle.

Harry’s own team consists of four people who have lost limbs as a result of injuries sustained in Afghanistan.

The November race pits them against groups from the US and the Commonwealth.

Celebrities among those line-ups include Alexander Skarsgard for the US and Dominic West with the Commonwealth.

Famous or not, all participants will be expected to endure whatever conditions come their way as they travel 200 miles across one of the planet’s most brutal and unforgiving terrains.

Average November conditions in the area are among the year’s most moderate with temperatures around 35 below zero and wind speeds of 13 miles per hour.
