London taxi driver Tony Caccavone raises his fist as he poses for the photographer next to his cab, painted in the colours of the Cuban flag, in central London, Monday, Jan. 20, 2014. Caccavone was driving his cab painted in the colours of the Cuban flag for 16 years, chatting often with customers regarding Cuba in what he says was a show of solidarity with the Caribbean country against US sanctions. The cab is being retired from service and he had donated it to the Havana Motor Museum. He was to deliver it to the Cuban ambassador and it is planned to be transported to Havana, Cuba in the next few weeks. (AP Photo/Lefteris Pitarakis)

London • Prince Harry has reunited with fellow polar adventurers, who couldn’t resist telling the world that his special skill on their Antarctic adventure was latrine construction.
Britain’s ginger-haired prince joined the team a press conference Tuesday. The group, which includes a dozen injured servicemen and women from Britain, the United States and Commonwealth countries, trekked hundreds of miles (kilometers) to reach the South Pole on Dec 13.
Fellow trekker Dominic West says Harry specialized in building latrines. The actor, who starred in the television series, "The Wire," says Harry’s structure had blocks to keep out the wind — and a holder for the paper.
West wistfully recounted "sitting there, looking at the beautiful view thinking ‘this is a royal flush, in every way’."
