British royal Prince Harry took his coolness to a whole new level after spending a night in a giant freezer in Nuneaton, UK. The 29-year-old prince woke up to temperatures around minus 35 degrees Celsius or minus 31 degrees Fahrenheit and winds up to 45 miles, or 72 kilometers per hour. He did this in preparation of a 15-day trek to the South Pole in November, to benefit the charity "Walking with the Wounded." Prince Harry is the patron of the non-profit that benefits wounded veterans and all of his four teammates have amputated limbs after serving in Afghanistan. While a trek in the bitter cold seems daunting to many it's actually nothing new for Harry. Two years ago he took part in a similar trek to the North Pole, but he had to pull out early to attend his brother, Prince William's wedding to Kate Middleton.
