Is Price Harry the cutest?  The spare attended the launch of Walking With The Wounded Everest 2012 Expedition at the BAFTA headquarters in central London today (February 10th) after visiting RAF Honington earlier.  During the launch, Harry walked on a treadmill in an altitude chamber with reduced oxygen to simulate walking up a mountain.

The expedition aims to see five injured servicemen successfully reach the summit of Mount Everest. Leaving England on March 27, the team hopes to reach the summit come mid-May. The charity raises funds to assist with the re-training and re-education of servicemen and women, both veterans and those leaving the armed forces.

Harry trained with ex-military servicemen for an expedition to the North Pole last April.  The prince is a patron of the Everest expedition, and encouraged those embarking on the challenge in a speech (video after the jump via the Telegraph).
