Prince William arrives in Israel

Prince William watches England thrash Panama in replay

Today, William will travel to Jerusalem, a history-making move denoting the first time a member of the British royal family has visited Israel on the government's behalf.

Prince William visited a sentimental spot on the second day of his five-day tour of the Middle East.

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".

In signing the Yad Vashem guestbook, the prince called it a "profoundly moving experience" and said the Holocaust was "almost impossible to comprehend".

He was joined by UK's Orthodox Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis during his visit to Yad Vashem.

Sharing the moment were Holocaust survivors, including two, Henry Foner, 86, and Paul Alexander, 80, who were among the thousands of Jewish children taken to Britain in safety on the Kindertransport.

At a meeting with Israeli President Reuven Rivlin, the prince, on a visit described by Britain as non-political, said he hoped "peace in the area can be achieved".

On Wednesday morning, Prince William will participate in a cultural event in Tel Aviv which has been embroiled in mystery due to the lack of details.

The following day, he is scheduled to meet Palestinian President Mahmud Abbas in Ramallah, in the occupied West Bank, before meeting Palestinian refugees and youth. 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. "He wants to get a flavor of the country".

The Duke of Cambridge has laid a wreath where ashes of victims of the Holocaust are buried at a memorial in Jerusalem.

There is a two to three hour gap in the Prince's schedule on Thursday before he is due to depart from Tel Aviv's Ben Gurion International Airport in the afternoon.

Other members of the royal family, such as the Dukes of Gloucester or Kent, cousins of the Queen, have made official visits to Israel in the past.

Later, the duke was greeted by Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his wife, Sara, at his residence. The memorial has recognized Prince William's great-grandmother, Princess Alice, as part of the Righteous Among the Nations for her role in rescuing Jews during the Holocaust.
