Prince William has landed in Israel, marking the first official visit to the country by a senior member of the royal family, according to Kensington Palace. The Duke of Cambridge touched down in Tel Aviv yesterday and was greeted on the tarmac.
The Duke made the trip which other prominent members of the royal family, like the Queen, Prince Charles, or his brother Prince Harryhasn’t made. His wife, Kate Middleton, is at home with their three children (including two-month-old Prince Louis) on maternity leave.
Over the next three days, Prince William plans to visit Jaffa, Jerusalem, and Ramallah, a Palestinian city in the West Bank. This will also mark the first royal visit to the West Bank at the invitation of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.
The historic nature of this tour is of course important and The Duke considers it a great privilege to be undertaking the first ever official Royal tour of Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories and to be able to help further strengthen the friendship between Jordan and the United Kingdom,” Kensington Palace said in a statement.DOWNLOAD Mp3
