Today the Duke of Cambridge made history when he became the first member of the British Royal Family to make an official visit to Israel. But before he did that, he carried out a full day of engagements in Jordan, following up on Day One of his Middle Eastern tour.
The Duke of Cambridge officially kicked off his Middle Eastern visit today when he touched down in Amman, Jordan. Over the next four days, William will tour Jordan, Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories, marking the first time a member of the British Royal Family has formally visited the latter two. It’s a historic trip, and it’s notable that the representative sent on behalf of the Queen is her grandson and not, say, the Prince of Wales as might be expected.
