Prince Harry is to appear on the front cover of a special edition of men’s magazine GQ as his older brother prepares to tie the knot this April.
The PR coup was scored after Harry agreed to trek to the North Pole with three wounded soldiers as part of his role as patron of the Walking With The Wounded charity.
Harry was snapped by photographer David Bailey wearing a special weight vest designed to strengthen the upper body, part of a training regimen in advance of setting foot on the tundra this Friday.
Speaking to GQ magazine the Prince joked: ''Can I do most of my training wearing this thing in bed?''
The May edition of GQ will go on sale on Thursday with a donation from each copy sold going to the Walking With The Wounded charity.
