The Prince will pay his respects on the 100th anniversary of the disastrous conclusion to the Antarctic Expedition led by Robert Falcon Scott (1868-1912) in which he and his four companions died.

He will also attend a presentation talk given by writer David Crane and Max Jones, a lecturer at the University of Manchester.

The Duke of Edinburgh will join Prince Albert in the evening for a gala dinner held at Corpus Christi College, with friends of the three adventurers, Scott, Wilson and Bowers.

A 4-month long exhibition is also taking place at the National Museum of Wales in Cardiff, marking the brave trio’s 100th year anniversary.
