Prince Henry is currently stranded in the Arctic Circle just a few weeks shy of his big brother’s royal wedding, and some are worried he’ll miss the big day.
According to E! Online, Harry is at the North Pole on an expedition with the charity Walking With the Wounded and was supposed to leave Thursday to return to the U.K. However, things didn’t go quite as planned.
“Prince Harry was due to leave the Arctic today, but owing to damage to the runway at Ice Camp Barneo his departure has been delayed,” says a rep for the prince. “He will now spend an extra day trekking with the team and return to Barneo tonight to await the first available flight.
The prince and his team are expected to leave the region within the next 48 hours, however the spokeswoman for the expedition explained that “given the unpredictable nature of conditions in the Arctic the situation may change.”
With teams known to have suffered weeks-long delays due to weather conditions, everyone has their fingers crossed that Harry will make is back to London in time for Price William‘s wedding to Kate Middleton on April 29.
