Prince Harry will take part in an ITV documentary about his trek to the South Pole with injured servicemen and women called Harry's Heroes.

Britain's Prince Harry will take part in an ITV documentary about his trek to the South Pole with injured servicemen.

The 29-year-old royal and his Walking with the Wounded team mates, took part in the challenge last month and Prince Harry is now determined to highlight their bravery.

According to the Daily Telegraph newspaper, he has provisionally agreed to appear in a television documentary called Harry's Heroes which will show the 208-mile trek and include "some quite emotive stuff from Harry."

The teams, including True Blood star Alexander Skarsgard and The Wire's Dominic West, were due to arrive back in the UK on December 23 after the 208-mile trek in time for Christmas but had to leave a week early due to a storm.

The documentary will show the adventurers, including 12 servicemen and women from Britain and other nations who have suffered horrific injuries, including the loss of limbs.

Prince Harry and his team had been expecting to take on rival groups from the US and the Commonweath in the charity race but the three teams came together for a non-competitive trek.

The expedition's director Ed Parker said the race was called off because of "higher degree of stress imposed on the team members, due to unprecedented terrain on the plateau."

The flame-haired royal was praised by the brave soldiers who joined him on the trip in the Antarctic for being a "really strong, fit individual" and spurring them on throughout the jaunt, which they completed on December 13.
