During his royal tour, William will become the first official royal visit to Israel and the Palestinian territories.

Unfortunately, Catherine was unable to make the trip with her husband as she's busy tending to newborn, Prince Louis and their other two children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

CNN reports that William is also expected to visit Jerusalem's Old City, the Mount of Olives and the Church of St. Mary Magdalene in the Garden of Gethsemane.

Though the trip is being billed as non-political, and places a special emphasis on technology and joint Israeli-Arab projects, the prince is meeting with Israeli and Palestinian leaders and visiting sites at the heart of the century-old conflict.

He will stay in Jerusalem at the King David Hotel, the former headquarters of the British administration during the mandate in Palestine before the creation of Israel in 1948.

Fans of the royal family were quick to reply to the photo, with one writing: "The Queen must be very proud of Prince William".


The duke's visit comes during a period of increased tension in the region.

In remarks to legislators on Monday before William's arrival in Israel, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said "we will of course welcome the prince" on "a historic visit", and he paid tribute to Princess Alice, as one of the "righteous among the nations" who saved Jewish lives during the Holocaust.

During his visit Yad Vashem, the Duke learnt about the individual stories of Holocaust victims through their possessions and moving testimonies as he paid his respects to the millions killed by the Nazi regime.

Israel captured east Jerusalem from Jordan in the 1967 Mideast war and annexed it in a move not internationally recognized.

However, Crown Prince Hussein, 23, recorded the game for him, and they watched it together at the Beit Al Urdun Palace in the evening.

Prince William will also meet with two Holocaust survivors, Paul Alexander and Henry Foner, both survivors of the Kindertransport rescue effort which helped bring thousands of Jewish children from Europe to Britain during World War II. On Monday, June 25, William visited the archaeological site of Jerash in Jordan, where Kate at age four posed for a photo with her younger sister Pippa Middleton and their father Michael.
