Prince Harry to climb Mt Everest in May

Prince Harry is set to climb Mt Everest in May as part of a mission to raise money for charity.

Harry embarked on an expedition to the North Pole last year with members of Walking with the Wounded, an organisation that helps rehabilitate injured troops.

And now the 27-year-old will rejoin his mates for another gruelling journey and trek up the world's tallest mountain.

Fellow climber Mollie Hughes, 21, told the Daily Telegraph: "He won't be doing the full climb, as it will take a long time and it requires rigorous training, so I think he'll be joining us at base camp."
