If you thought Oprah fixing a toilet last week was impressive, that's nothing compared to what Prince Harry accomplished after reaching the South Pole.
The 29-year-old was part of a team of British serviceman who successfully completed a grueling 200-plus mile trek to the middle of the Antarctic last December. The event, called the South Pole Allied Challenge, included similar teams from the U.S. and the Commonwealth, all raising funds and awareness for groups involved in helping wounded military veterans.
During a reunion yesterday for Harry and his Walking with the Wounded teammates, it was revealed that the prince was quite the engineer when it came time for someone to build a few toilets at the bottom of the world.
“He did one with castellated sides and a flag pole, a loo roll holder, and you’re sitting there thinking ‘this is a real royal flush.’ He must have spent about 40 minutes making it.
“I remember thinking that he did art A-level, and you can tell he is artistic.”
"True Blood" star Alexander Skarsgard, also on the trek, posted a memorable photograph to Twitter of him sitting on one of Harry's toilets.
