Prince Harry angered over Dominic West’s comments on South Pole trek

After Dominic West revealed over the weekend that he’s no longer friends with Prince Harry, more details have emerged about how Harry reportedly was annoyed that the actor said too much at a press conference about the “two-day bender” they and others enjoyed upon reaching the South Pole on a 2013 charity trek with injured military veterans.
