Today The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall, together with The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visited the Defence Medical Rehabilitation Centre, to meet patients and staff. DMRC Stanford Hall rehabilitates some of the most seriously injured members of the British Armed Forces, whilst also helping to return those who have been injured in the course of training to work. Facilities at the centre includes gyms, swimming and hydrotherapy pools, alongside social spaces and places for relaxation. DMRC Stanford Hall is part of the Defence and National Rehabilitation Centre (DNRC) programme, which was spearheaded by the late Duke of Westminster to provide 21st century clinical rehabilitation for the Armed Forces and the Nation on the Stanford Hall estate — In 2018 The Duke of Cambridge attended a special ceremony as the Defence facility was handed over to the nation by the current The Duke of Westminster.

The Duke of Cambridge played a game of wheelchair basketball. "Sixth time lucky," they shared after William eventually got the ball in with a little help from The Prince of Wales.

According to People, there was also a bit of banter between the father-son duo.

Because all four of the royals were present, William cracked an unexpected joke, which, coming after the royals have reportedly decided to slim down the family, a lot of people found especially funny.

"When there's four of us it's a nightmare," the Duke of Cambridge said. Prince Charles agreed, quipping, "There's too many of us!"

The Prince of Wales later also joked with reporters that they'd have to be on top form "with so many of us running around".
