  • Prince William and his father, Prince Charles, were captured on video in the midst of a sweet father-son moment.


    The future Kings and their wives, Duchess Camilla and Duchess Catherine, spent yesterday on a joint public engagement.

    The foursome paid a visit to the Defence Medical Rehabilitation Centre (DMRC) in Loughborough, where they met with patients and staff of the armed forces.

    Showing off his sporty side, Prince William had a go at playing wheelchair basketball, attempting to shoot a few hoops.

    As William missed shot after shot, Prince Charles took it upon himself to give his son a helping hand.

    In a hilarious clip, the Queen’s eldest son approached Prince William from behind and pushed the wheelchair forward and closer to the hoop, before giving him a supportive pat on the shoulders.

    The Duke of Cambridge attempted a couple more shots, finally landing the ball in the net, prompting a proud celebration from his dad, his wife, his mother-in-law and the crowd of onlookers.

    Sixth time lucky 🏀 The Duke of Cambridge scores in Wheelchair Basketball (with a little help from The Prince of Wales!) during a visit to the Defence Medical Rehabilitation Centre today. Together with The Duchess of Cornwall and The Duchess of Cambridge, they met patients and staff at DMRC Stanford Hall, which rehabilitates some of the most seriously injured members of the Armed Forces, whilst also helping to return those who have been injured in the course of training to work. It’s not all about physical rehabilitation though — supporting the mental health of patients is also a key part of the recovery process, with several patients at centre using gardening as a form of therapy, and in the workshop woodworking and other practical skills helped people gain more confidence and learn new skills.

    Ok, that was sweet,’ penned one.

    Another chipped in ,‘It’s so cute how bouncy and giddy he was when his dad started pushing the wheelchair closer, lol. Soooo cute!
