Prince Harry breaks his toe, injures neck

Prince Harry has reportedly broken his toe and suffered a neck injury, although no other details have been revealed so far.

A spokesman confirmed on Monday that the 29-year-old broke his toe "a few days ago," but declined to go into further detail, saying, "it is a private matter."

Now, it seems, there may be more to the red-headed royal’s afflictions than once thought. The prince may have also hurt his neck, a fact that Prince Charles reportedly let slip to rugby player Sam Burgess at a function for the rugby league world cup on Tuesday.


"Prince Charles said he might have to send Prince Harry to see me because he has hurt his neck," the England player and South Sydney forward told The Australian.

"He said he had sought advice from Zara's husband Mike Tindall about it and mentioned that Mike had helped. So we were talking about injuries and treatments and the need to ice his neck."

Despite his injuries, the prince is still planning to take part in a grueling, 335-kilometre, 16-day race to the South Pole next month.

“He’s broken his toe but he will still be taking part in the South Pole Challenge,” the spokesman said. “It’s still very much on.”
