I think mixed emotions probably, I think some people, for instance Duncan, double amputee, simply doesn't find walking to the South Pole a big enough challenge, which is why he really enjoyed the race.I think everyone back home will appreciate the fact that, just being able to walk 100km in these conditions with no legs is a pretty amazing feat in its self." Harry's team were leading the event which began last Sunday week - after it had been shortened by 37 miles because of the weather-inflicted delays.
Team UK, which includes the prince and four injured British soldiers, had been racing against a US team, and a team made up of Canadians and Australians.
After his injury, Sgt Slater spent a year in a wheelchair before doctors told him he would need to have his legs amputated.
However, within six weeks Sgt Slater was making strides on his new prosthetic limbs.
In a voice blog from the Antarctic on Thursday, Harry said Sgt Slater "simply doesn't find walking to the South Pole a big enough challenge." "Everyone is in really high spirits.
The race obviously got cancelled a couple of days ago - a really good thing that has happened," said Harry.
