The Duke of Cambridge has called on the public to continue their support of injured British servicemen and women. Prince William made the heartfelt plea as he and Prince Harry officially opened four Help for Heroes Recovery centres during a visit to Tedworth House, Tidworth, Wiltshire.

 

"When Harry and I, like so many other young men and women, first donned our Help for Heroes wristbands - only six years ago - not even we, as servicemen, could have guessed the scale of the challenges ahead," William said.

"In 2007 the nation was beginning to wake up to the reality of the debt we owed to its wounded and sick servicemen returning from overseas.

"The British public's unprecedented response to the likes of Help for Heroes, the Royal British Legion and countless other service charities was a heartfelt response to that sense of debt felt by countless tens of thousands of people, in fact the whole nation, who wanted to show support and gratitude."
