How far would you go to get away from a crying baby?

Prince Harry joked that he's flown all the way to Antarctica to escape his 4-month-old nephew, Prince George.

Prince William previously acknowledged that his first-born child has "a good pair of lungs on him" and his brother hinted that's why William wishes he was taking part in the 200-mile race to the South Pole.

"I think he's quite jealous I managed to get away from his screaming child," Harry said.

Prince Harry Bids Farewell Ahead of His South Pole Adventure

Originally posted 11/14/2013 12:45PM

Prince Harry's goodbye kiss will have to last Cressida Bonas for five weeks as he treks across Antarctica to raise awareness for wounded soldiers.

The prince, 29, heads for Cape Town, South Africa, on Sunday to take part in Walking with the Wounded's South Pole Allied Challenge – a race that spans over 200 miles in temperatures that can dip to 50 degrees below zero. The competition will involve three seven-man teams from the U.K., the U.S., Australia and Canada. During that time, none of the participants will be calling home.

"He won't get to speak to his girlfriend for about four weeks, which is tough, but it's the same for everyone," Walking with the Wounded's cofounder Ed Parker tells PEOPLE. "There's no airs and graces. He's a soldier, he really gets who we are and what we are trying to do, and we're lucky to have him on board, especially for the whole five weeks."

Some appearances – sweet as they may be – can be deceiving.

After a cozy photograph of Ellen Page and her The East costar Alexander Skarsgard made the rounds on social media over the weekend – Tweeted out by the film's director, Zal Batmanglij, no less – speculation ramped up that the two were an item off-screen.

But, a source tells PEOPLE, the costars are just friends. And it isn't even clear how long ago the picture was taken.

The actress, however, liked it enough to re-Tweet: the photo shows the two dressed in matching denim outfits with Skarsgard's arm around Page, who seems to be lying in his lap. "Canadian tuxedo party," she wrote, referencing their denim on denim ensembles.
