LONDON (AP) - Prince Harry says he hopes that he will be able to start an Arctic trek with a group of wounded soldiers this weekend.

The younger prince and a group of wounded servicemen were due to set off on their expedition to raise funds for the Walk With The Wounded charity last week but bad weather delayed their plans.

Harry has spent the last five days with the group on the Norwegian Island of Spitsbergen waiting for the weather to improve. He said Saturday that the group now plans to begin the trek Sunday afternoon.

He will now camp with the group for four nights. The rest of the team will continue to the North Pole. Their goal is to raised 2 million pounds ($3.2 million) through donations and sponsorships.
