Prince Harry and his bridge climb group scaled more than 1300 steps to get to the top of the structure.

Also joining the Duke of Sussex on his venture upwards were Invictus Games athletes Luke Hill, Ruth Hunt, Heidi Joosten, and Michael Lyddiard, as well as Gwen Cherne, whose late husband served in Cambodia, East Timor, Afghanistan, and Iraq.

Upon his arrival to the top of the bridge, Prince Harry watched on as the Invictus Games flag was raised above Sydney, alongside the Australian flag.

The Games, created by the Prince himself, kicks-off in Sydney from tomorrow and will include a week of different events.

This is the first outing of the 76-engagement tour that his wife, Meghan Markle, who is just entering her second trimester, didn’t participate in.

The BridgeClimb’s official site lists guidelines specifically for pregnant climbers. If you are less than 24 weeks pregnant, you can participate with a signed Certificate of Fitness Form from your doctor, however, if you are over 24 weeks pregnant you cannot climb.
