Prince William arrives in Israel

Prince William watches England thrash Panama in replay Prince William tours Jordan’s Roman ruins, meets with refugees in high-profile Mideast visit

According to Hello! during a reception at the British ambassador to Jordan's residence in the capital of Amman, Rania Malki, chief executive of Save The Children in Jordan, told Prince William that she knew the house that the Middleton family had lived in, as it's now the home of her children's paediatrician.

In Jordan, the prince attended a reception marking the birthday of his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, and toured the ruins of the Roman city of Jerash, a major tourist attraction his wife had visited as a child when she and her family lived in Jordan.

"Need to come back with the family for this shot", William said as he stood in the same spot where the photo was taken. 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.

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.

Naturally, the Duchess of Cambridge was sorry she couldn't be involved in the festivities. For nearly three years in the 1980s, the family lived in Jordan where Michael Middleton worked for British Airways.

Prince William arrived in Israel on Monday for the first-ever official visit of a member of the British royal family to the tumultuous region London once ruled.

It is part of a five-day tour of the Middle East.

Tom Segev, an Israeli historian, said some Israelis feel resentment over what he described as the British royal family's boycott of Israel over the years.

William, an avid soccer fan, arrived in Jordan on Sunday afternoon, at a time when the England-Panama World Cup game was under way.

Three decades of British rule between the two world wars helped establish some of the fault lines of today's Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and Britain's withdrawal in 1948 led to the eventual establishment of Israel and Jordan.

He will then travel to the residence of Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, where he will be welcomed to Israel by the politician and his wife before meeting the country's President Reuven Rivlin at his residence. The comments came as Syrian government forces advanced in southern Syria, near Jordan's border, leading to more displacement.

The official Kensington Palace Twitter account tweeted out a photo of William standing in almost the same spot Middleton stood with her father, who at the time was stationed in Jordan while working for British Airways.

Even just by stepping foot in Israel, Prince William has made history.
