Meet the Team
HRH The Countess of Wessex, GCVO
I am delighted to have become Royal Patron of Antarctica Ice Maiden. Having already demonstrated enormous passion and commitment through a tough selection process, this incredible team has developed into a tight-knit, driven and courageous group who I know will face head-on the challenges which lie ahead.
I am confident that their skills, professionalism and perseverance will ensure the best possible chance of success. These women will not only be setting new records through their endeavours, but will also be carrying out valuable and groundbreaking medical research which will have far reaching future applications, at the same time as being an inspiration to women and girls everywhere.
Lieutenant General Tim Radford CB DSO OBE
This pioneering, all-female expedition to the Antarctic epitomises the extraordinary leadership, courage and teamwork for which the British Army is renowned.
