'Amazed' Harry meets relatives of team recreating 40-hour kayak war escape

25 AUGUST 2011

Action man Prince Harry was on hand to meet families of a team recreating an escape across the North Sea from Nazi-occupied Holland during WWII.

Four men from Suffolk – including personal friend of Prince Harry Olly Hicks – were joined by two Dutchmen as they began the trip on Monday night.

Olly was the only British team member to finish – the rest dropped out due to exhaustion.

"I am truly amazed at what the team have achieved during the past few days," said Harry in a statement.

The 26-year-old made the trip to Sizewell beach in Suffolk to mark the completion of the charity crossing.
