Prince William toured a new rehabilitation centre at Headley Court in Surrey at the end of last week. He chatted to patients and Royal Marine Dave Corcoran as they showed him the facilities at the Help for Heroes Complex for soldiers seriously injured during active duty. The centre offers physical rehabilitation for them, and the Prince spoke about the first time he'd visited with his brother, before the new centre was opened. He said:
"When my brother, Harry, and I first came to Headley Court two years ago, we were unsure about what to expect. As soldiers, we had heard of the great sacrifices of our fellow servicemen, the horrific injuries being suffered by them in the service of our country. We expected to find a place of suffering with, perhaps, a pervading atmosphere of desolation. Nothing could be further from the truth. Here reigns courage, humour, compassion and, above all, hope for the future."
