Duke of York abseils down the Shard

Posted on by Rob Powell

THE DUKE of York has abseiled down the UK’s tallest building – the Shard in central London.

Prince Andrew completed the daring stunt in aid of the Outward Bound Trust and the Royal Marines Charitable Trust.

“It’s a long way down. But it’s a fantastic view of London,” said the prince who saw active service during the Falkands War. he added: “Yes, I feel very good. I think I’ll go and have some breakfast now.”

Floors 4 to 28 of the recently-completed sky-scraper are available as premium office space. The building will also contain restaurants, a hotel and residential apartments.

More information about the project and its aims can be found here.
