Prince William and Prince Charles

Royal fans adore Prince Charles’ ‘perfect father-son moment’ with Prince William

A rare glimpse into their relationship

| Updated:

Royal fans have heaped praise on a video of Prince William playing wheelchair basketball with his dad, Prince Charles, and called it the ‘perfect’ father-son moment.

Earlier today (February 12 2020), the pair were joined by the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, and Charles’ wife Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, for an event at the Defence Medical Rehabilitation Centre in Loughborough.

William got into a basketball wheelchair as he tried his hand at the Paralympic sport, while his old man gave him a helping hand by pushing him around the court.

The touching moment was captured in a video shared on the Cambridges’ Instagram account, which was captioned: “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.”

In the video, Charles pushes the wheelchair to edge William closer to the basketball hoop.

He makes two attempts with the ball but misses both, to the groans of those gathered on the court. On his third attempt, William scores and the Prince of Wales throws his arms in the air in celebration.
