Prince Harry reunites with polar explorers

LONDON (AP) — Prince Harry has reunited with fellow polar adventurers, who couldn't resist telling the world that his special skill on their Antarctic adventure was latrine construction.

Britain's ginger-haired prince joined the team a press conference Tuesday. The group, which includes a dozen injured servicemen and women from Britain, the United States and Commonwealth countries, trekked hundreds of miles (kilometers) to reach the South Pole on Dec 13.

Fellow trekker Dominic West says Harry specialized in building latrines. The actor, who starred in the television series, "The Wire," says Harry's structure had blocks to keep out the wind — and a holder for the paper.

West wistfully recounted "sitting there, looking at the beautiful view thinking 'this is a royal flush, in every way'."
