Will, Kate, Charles & Camilla in Joint Visit

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge joined the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall for a joint visit to the Defence Medical Rehabilitation Centre, a rehabilitation center for the armed forces located in Loughborough, roughly 120 miles north of London.

 

Charles, Camilla, William and Kate toured the facility, including the gym and the prosthetics workshop, on their first official outing since a charity concert in 2011.

 

The fab four! Charles, Camilla, William and Kate came together to visit to the new Defence Medical Rehabilitation Centre (DMRC), Loughborough, in their first official outing as a foursome since 2011. Pictured, the royals at the centre today

Prince Charles and Prince William bonded over wheelchair basketball.

 

Playful Prince William tried his hand at the sport while meeting injured military personnel on a visit to the new Defence Medical Rehabilitation Centre (DMRC), Loughborough, this afternoon.

 

Hoping to help his son score, Charles pushed William towards the basket and was on hand with a boosting shoulder rub when the first two shots were unsuccessful.

 

Father and son were also joined in celebration when the Duke of Cambridge finally did score, with both princes throwing their hands up in delight.

 

 

A good sport! In the gym the royals met patients playing wheelchair basketball as part of their treatment - and Prince William, 37, gamely sat in a chair to try and score a basket. Despite his confidence, the ball went wide

 

 

His No.1 fan: Fortunately Charles, 71, was on hand to console his son and jokingly rubbed William's shoulders as he commiserated in the chair, pictured. The father and son shared a laugh following the failed attempt

 

 

Perfectly polished: Meanwhile his wife Kate, 38, elegantly dressed in a military-style jacket by Alexander McQueen, spent time speaking to patients about the important role mental health care played in their rehabilitation

I can't help to think Harry is isolating himself from his family. I think it's sad, his mother wouldn't be happy her sons have grown apart.

He shoots! The confident Duke of Cambridge flicked his wrist and sent the ball flying... but it went wide and missed the basket

 

 

 

Better luck this time! Fortunately for the prince he had better luck with another attempt and celebrated with Prince Charles

 

 

 

Cracking jokes! Prince Charles had his daughter-in-law laughing as they toured the facilities at DMRC this afternoon

They're being described as 'the new Fab Four' and Kate sure looks 'Fab" in her miltitary style coat, I love it.

You never know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice you have.

Kate is wearing Alexander McQueen. Tuesday marks the 10th anniversary of his death.

 

 

Kate's decision to wear McQueen today is particularly poignant as it is the tenth anniversary of the designer's death
