"It will be at least 24, maybe 48, hours until he can get in the air and make his way back to England," the aide says. "But he's taking it all in his stride. It's just more time on the trek for him. He's cool about it."

What's the hold up?

A rep for Harry tells Us that "his departure has been "delayed" due to "damage to the runway."

"He will now spend an extra day trekking with the team and return to Borneo tonight to await the first available flight," his rep adds.

Harry, 26, has been on a 200 mile trek with other servicemen for the Walking With the Wounded charity; they're aiming to raise £2 million for the cause.

The Walking Wounded team, which includes four soldiers who suffered life-altering injuries, will continue to hike for another three weeks. At the end of their mission, they will have covered 200 miles of frozen Arctic Ocean on foot while hauling their own equipment.

Originally scheduled to return home on April 5, Harry will still make it back in time for his Apache helicopter training with the military.
