Prince William meets Israel’s Netanyahu as diplomatic storm rages over Jerusalem

Prince William And Kate Middleton Will Reportedly Not Make Prince Harry Louis' Godfather

For the 36-year-old William, second in line to the throne, it marks a high-profile visit that could burnish his global credentials.

During the visit, which Britain has described as non-political, William is also scheduled to meet Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and Palestinian youngsters in the occupied West Bank.

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

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

"I'm very grateful to Britain because it saved my life, it's as simple as that", said Foner, 86.

"We know some of the politics are hard, but this is not a political visit".

At Yad Vashem, William signed a guest book in which he noted with pride that his great-grandmother, Princess Alice, had been honoured by the institution as one of "the righteous among the nations" for sheltering Jews in her home in Greece during the Holocaust.

Tomorrow, he will lay a wreath at Holocaust memorial Yad Vashem, before meeting separately with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and President Reuven Rivlin. The two are expected to speak this evening at a reception for the price at the British ambassador's residence in Ramat Gan.

In Jerusalem, the holy city at the heart of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, the prince will view its walled Old City from the Mount of Olives during his four-day trip.

He added: "United Jerusalem has been the capital of Israel for 3,000 years and no distortion in the tour itinerary can change that reality".

A spokesman for the prince, acknowledging the "well-known" and "complex challenges" in the Middle East, said William's tour, like other visits overseas by members of the British royal family, will be non-political.

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

William, an avid soccer fan, arrived in Jordan on Sunday afternoon, as the England-Panama World Cup match was underway.

The same day he visited the first century ruins, William - who's being hosted by Crown Prince Al-Hussein bin Abdullah II, the son of King Abdullah II and Queen Rania - also met with Syrian refugees including some who are learning photography skills as well as children who are receiving psychological support from a UNICEF Jordan program.
