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.
