British royal Prince Andrew overcame a crippling bout of nerves to complete a terrifying abseiling stunt down the side of Europe's tallest building.
The Duke of York, fourth in line to the throne, descended the outside of the 1,016-foot (309-metre) The Shard skyscraper in London on Monday (03Sep12) along with 38 other participants to raise money for two charities.
The royal tells the U.K.'s Itv News, "Yes I did enjoy it. I was curious to see if I would be able to step over the edge!
"I was scared yes. There is a moment of trepidation when you step out... It was nerve-wracking to start with... having had to walk up the last few floors because that's the only way you can get up there... It was very slippery, I slid down the first section... (But) you couldn't have asked for a better day..."
Prince Andrew's stunt raised $460,000 (£288,000) for educational charity The Outward Bound Trust and the Royal Marines Charitable Trust Fund.
