Video of the Week: Prince Andrew rappels down The Shard — Europe’s tallest building

Prince Andrew, Prince Charles’ brother rappelled 785 feet (239 meters) down the side of The Shard — Europe’s tallest building — to raise money for charity. He began on the 87th floor and finished on the 20th and it took him 30 minutes. He was part of a group of roughly 40 participants raising funds for the Outward Bound Trust and the Royal Marines Charitable Trust Fund. They raised £290,000 (USD $460,000) and following the stunt, Andrew told reporters “I will never do it again.”
