Prince William arrives in Israel

It is uncertain what, if any, effect Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's electoral victory this past weekend will have on.

William was later welcomed by Israel's prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, and his wife, Sara, at their official residence in Jerusalem. That tour took them to the archaeological site of Jerash, a first century Roman city that Middleton visited with her sister, Pippa, when she was four years old and the family lived in Jordan.

Just when we were beginning to think Meghan Markle and Prince Harry had Will and Kate beat for cutest royal couple, Prince William swooped in, giving a sweet (and Instagram-era appropriate) tribute to his wife of seven years. Many other Kindertransport children were less lucky. And also to get a flavor of Israel, to see what's happening here, some of the extraordinary successes in technology, some of the great culture here.

William will stay at Jerusalem's King David Hotel.

Before settling down to soccer, William spoke at a garden reception at the British Embassy, praising Britain's historic ties with Jordan and the kingdom's commitment to hosting Syrian and Palestinian refugees. "It's consistent with British government policy".

Yet he is likely to rub up against the complicated realities of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, particularly when he visits the disputed holy city of Jerusalem.


Wearing a black skullcap, William laid a wreath in the Hall of Remembrance at Israel's Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial, where an eternal flame flickers and the names of extermination and concentration camps are engraved in the floor.

"I would like you to send him a message of peace and tell him it is about time, it is about time that we have to find together the way to build confidence".

The prince's visit comes at a time of heightened tensions in the region, with deadly clashes on the Gaza border following protests as Israel marks its 70th anniversary year, and United States president Donald Trump's decision to move the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

On Wednesday Wills will become the first ever royal to visit the Occupied Palestinian Territories, where he will meet leader Mahmoud Abbas.

Henry Foner, who was fostered by a Jewish family in Swansea, Wales, and later served overseas for the British Army, said it was like a fairy tale for a refugee child like himself to meet a member of the royal family eight decades after the country rescued him.

"I don't expect many Israelis to stream out on to the streets and greet the vehicle of Prince William".
