Get a peek inside the giant freezer where Prince Harry spent the night

Prince Harry slept in a giant freezer on Monday night, to train for a charity trek to the South Pole.

The giant freezer is an army test facility used to test army vehicles and train soldiers for extreme weather conditions.

Harry had to endure temperatures of -35C and wind speeds of 45mph in the cold chamber in Warwickshire.

The Prince and his team-mates are getting ready for a charity trek in Antarctica later this year.

They are taking part in a 200-mile race against US and Commonwealth teams. It's been organised by the Walking With The Wounded charity which raises money to help injured service men and women.

The team spent a total of 20 hours in the sub-zero tank, and when he got out the prince said it had been a cold night's sleep, and the worst part was "going in".

Prince Harry took part in a similar trek, to the North Pole, back in 2011.
