Prince William, who recently celebrated his 36th birthday, spent his time there by speaking about the Defense and National Rehabilitation Centre.
William paid tribute to the fundraising for the Centre and addressed the crowd that consisted of great personalities like Prince of Bahrain, the Chief of the Defence Staff General Sir Nicholas Carter and historian Dan Sno, as reported by The Telegraph. Addressing the crowd Prince William said, "I have seen the growth of an idea transfer into what we see today - and it is a rare and immensely satisfying thing to have witnessed."
He also shed light on some of the memories he shared with his son, Prince George and recalled getting hands-on with some of the construction and demolishing a building. "George was at an age at the time that he loved seeing the digger in action, so it did my street cred as a father the world of good," he said. At the same time, he brought attention to how the facility will prove to be good for people who have been struggling.
