Bringing an end to their Walking with the Wounded expedition, Prince Harry and Alexander Skarsgard are headed back to South Africa.

The Royal hunk and his “True Blood” teammate were advised to leave Novolazarevskaya Station and return to Cape Town in order to avoid a massive winter storm that would have delayed their trip.

Director Ed Parker shared, "Now on a very blustery, very snowy day, with a blizzard coming, we are about to fly out to, well we are about to be dragged out on the back of a skidoo to our Aleutian aircraft."

"That Aleutian aircraft will be flying us back to Cape Town, where we have a few days of decompression before returning home to our loved ones. We understand that the charity has been raising lots of money from our efforts, which it is ultimately all about, that and making people aware of how extraordinary our wounded men and women are and how they are able to challenge themselves in the future."
