Prince Harry: South Pole Trek Is Escape from Prince William's 'Screaming Child'

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.

He's been to the North Pole – in 2011, though he returned from the expedition early because his brother happened to be marrying Kate Middleton.

Now, Prince Harry has gone to the other end of the earth, to raise awareness for wounded soldiers.

After a brief stop in Cape Town until the weather calmed down, Harry and his teammates for the Walking with the Wounded South Pole Allied Challenge landed in Antarctica Friday to set off for Novo Airbase, to begin acclimating themselves to extreme (at times minus 50-degree) temps for their 200-mile trek to the South Pole.

Prince Harry to Begin South Pole Journey, Leaving Cressida for Five Weeks

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."

Prince William and Prince Harry helped lead Britain in commemorating the country's war dead on Sunday.

William, 31, who served as a RAF search and rescue helicopter pilot until September, was watched by wife Kate as he laid a wreath of poppies at a memorial in central London. He followed his brother, army captain Harry, 29, who donned his ceremonial Household Cavalry great coat with wide red collar, in paying tribute on behalf of his father, Prince Charles (who is in India with wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall).

As in previous years, Kate, 31, watched from a balcony above Whitehall, central London, alongside William’s aunt Sophie, Countess of Wessex, and Tim Laurence, the husband of Princess Anne. Kate donned a brooch in the shape of a poppy – the traditional symbol worn to honor those who have perished in wars.

Bon Jovi will also be honored with the Centrepoint Great Britain Youth Inspiration Award, that recognizes the rocker's humanitarian work as founder of the Soul Foundation, which aids families and individuals in economic despair.

Prince Harry is well known for being able to take a joke, but maybe this one crossed a line.

A comedy show in Britain is being accused of degrading the royal family after including a sexually explicit joke about the prince in one of its sketches.

At one point during Monday's broadcast of Fresh Meat on Channel 4, one character said to another: "I'll take you to a place on the King's Road where Prince Harry got a hand j–– off an assistant manager at Abercrombie & Fitch."

The royal spoofs just keep coming.

Seth MacFarlane and the animators of Family Guy are poking some fun at the royal family, this time with a good-natured parody of the christening picture.

Instead of the adorable Prince George, we find troublemaking Stewie in Princess Kate's lap, with a grin on his face that suggests he's up to no good.

Prince Charles: The Man Who Still Will Be King

Originally posted 10/24/2013 08:25AM

He's ready to serve, he's been wanting to serve, but when will Britain's heir apparent serve?

That is the question that has dogged Prince Charles practically his entire 64 years. But now, with his mother, Queen Elizabeth, slowing down at 87 (yet with no intention of abdicating), and his son Prince William and daughter-in-law, Kate, keeping the spotlight on the monarchy blazing hot, Charles discusses the issue of succession and other personal matters in an exclusive new cover story for Time.

Of his unique role in the world, Charles tells the magazine's Catherine Mayer, "I've had this extraordinary feeling, for years and years, ever since I can remember really, of wanting to heal and make things better. … I feel more than anything else it's my duty to worry about everybody and their lives in this country, to try to find a way of improving things if I possibly can."

Titled "The Forgotten Prince," no doubt in light of William and Prince Harry's celebrity and even 3-month-old grandson Prince George's swiftly rising star, the article presents the royal as unsurprisingly staid, yet thoughtful, proactive and as delightfully proud of his sons and new grandson as any older relative would be.

Prince George's Christening: Who's Who & What's What

Originally posted 10/23/2013 08:45AM

A big day for little Prince George.

Lightly jiggled in his father's arms, the 3-month-old looked slightly perplexed at the attention as his parents, Prince William and Kate, greeted clergy at the doors of the baby's special christening service.

Led by the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, the 35-minute, private ceremony started at 3 p.m. London time (10 a.m. ET) at the Chapel Royal in St. James's Palace.

Shortly after her arrival with Prince Philip, Queen Elizabeth spoke with William and Kate, with smiles all around. Kate – in an Alexander McQueen outfit and nude-and-ivory Jane Taylor hat – greeted George's great-grandfather with a kiss on both cheeks and a small curtsy.

As if to underscore the continuity of the monarchy, there, too, at the chapel door were Prince Charles and his wife, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have picked close friends, a royal and a friend of Princess Diana as godparents to 3-month-old Prince George.

The names of the seven – that's one more godparent than William has – were released a few hours before they were to join senior royals and the Middleton family for George's christening.

Led by the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, the service is set to take place at 3 p.m. London time (10 a.m. ET) at the Chapel Royal in St. James's Palace.
