Speaking at the reception earlier, the Duke had referenced Kate's absence - she's now on maternity leave after welcoming Prince Louis in April - explaining: "My wife Catherine is very sorry she can not be here with me so soon after the birth of our son Louis, but her family remembers very fondly the nearly three years she spent here as a child when her father worked for British Airways in Amman". That's where his great-grandmother Princess Alice of Battenberg - the mother of his grandfather, Prince Philip (and a great-granddaughter of Queen Victoria) - is buried.

Thanks to her, the Cohen family survived and today lives in France, it said.

Britain's Prince William lays a wreath during a visit at the Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial in Jerusalem on 26 June 2018. The princess died in 1969, and in 1988 her remains were brought to Jerusalem.

A devoted Aston Villa fan, William, 36, is wearing beige trousers and a tie-less sky blue shirt, while 23-year-old Hussein, is wearing a short-sleeved T-shirt and jeans.

The duke's trip covers Israel, Jordan and the Palestinian territories.

Britain's Prince William met Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at the Israeli leader's Jerusalem residence on Tuesday after visiting Israel's memorial to the six million Jews killed in the Nazi Holocaust.




Yad Vashem's Chairman Avner Shalev will accompany Prince William who will participate in a memorial ceremony in the Hall of Remembrance, visit the Children's Memorial, and sign the Yad Vashem Guest Book. He'll also meet the mayor of Tel Aviv and attend a reception the British ambassador is holding in his honor.

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

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.

Israel defines Jerusalem as its "eternal and indivisible" capital, while the Palestinians see east Jerusalem as the capital of their future state. He was hosted by Crown Prince Hussein, 23, a member of the Hashemite dynasty Britain helped install in then-Transjordan nearly a century ago.

Arriving at the Jerash archaeological site today, Prince William was confronted with a large, blown-up family photo from the 1980s featuring The Duchess of Cambridge.

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