Prince Harry job appeal for South Pole teammates

Prince Harry appeared without his beard which he grew on the trip.

Prince Harry paid tribute to the "unbelievable achievement" of his Walking With The Wounded teammates who completed the South Pole and appealed for help in getting them back in to employment.

The prince said: "If anybody out there has the ability or resources to give these guys and girls a stepping stone back into employment then please do. You certainly won't regret it."

Buckingham Palace said in a statement: "The Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh, the Princess Royal, Captain Mark Phillips and Mike's parents, Mr Phillip and Mrs Linda Tindall, have been informed and are delighted with the news. The baby's name will be confirmed in due course."
