Prince Harry has revealed his big brother Prince William is probably very jealous that he is currently in Antarctica - while he is at home dealing with a screaming baby!

Loose-lipped Harry made his comments to Sky News from his base in Antarctica where he is part of a group, Walking for the Wounded, trekking to the South Pole.

The 29-year-old prince said Prince William, father to Prince George, was undoubtedly envious of the trek.

"My brother, yeah, I think he's just quite jealous that I managed to get away from a screaming child," the prince, sporting a new red beard, smugly revealed.

Harry also spilled the beans about what the rest of the 'firm' thought about his epic trip.

"Obviously, I took all the guys to Buckingham Palace to meet my grandmother and grandfather, which they absolutely loved, especially Inge Solheim who was very excited, which was fantastic.

"My father was a little concerned, but I obviously tried to keep him calm and explain the North Pole was the dangerous one because we're walking on a frozen ocean whereas this time there are crevasses," he said.

British, Commonwealth and US teams will begin the 210-mile (337-km) race to the South Pole at the weekend.
