Britain's Prince William, in Jerusalem, honours Holocaust victims, meets Netanyahu

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

Prince William will continue his "non-political" trip of the Middle East, through Jordan, Israel and Palestine, before heading to the Dar Na'mah Centre.

"It's terrifying. I'm trying to comprehend the scale", said William, who wore a black Jewish skullcap that was a gift from the British chief rabbi, Ephraim Mirvis, who accompanied him.

William met with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his wife Sara at the leader's residence in Jerusalem after his visit to Yad Vashem, and later met with Israeli President Reuven Rivlin.

His day will round off with a visit to the city of Jaffa, where he will meet young Arab and Jewish Israelis playing football together, and will join them in a penalty shoot-out.

The visit by the second in line to the British throne has been billed as a chance to bond with Hussein, a fellow graduate of Britain's Royal Sandhurst Military Academy. "It was as if he knew us, he knew the background and he made us feel so at home. She is very upset that I am coming here without her".

The British Government has asked the Duke of Cambridge to make the trip.

"Princess Alice personally saw to it that the members of the persecuted Jewish family had everything they needed and even visited them in their hiding place, spending many hours in their company", Yad Vashem said.

The prince also met two men who survived the Nazi genocide through British intervention.

Energy Stocks To Watch Ahead Of OPEC Meetings
Iran is usually not part of the committee, which includes Russia , Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Oman, Kuwait, Algeria and Venezuela. OPEC, he said, "is not an organization to receive the instruction from President Trump and follow it".

Princess Alice was recognized as one of the "righteous among nations", gentiles who rescued Jews, by Yad Vashem in 1993.

Ahead of the visit, the prince caused a stir in Israel when the royal itinerary described east Jerusalem, including the Old City, as part of the "Occupied Palestinian Territories".

Britain captured Palestine from the Ottoman empire in 1917 during World War One and administered the territory under worldwide mandate until 1948, pulling out a day before Israel declared independence.

British royals have historically declined invitations for official state visits to Israel.

He will then meet with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas in Ramallah in the West Bank on June 26.

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

"When I put my foot on English soil for the first time, it was like I had been reborn, because I left Nazi Germany and was received by the British people and I have an enormous debt of thanks to the British people", Alexander, originally from Leipzig, told Reuters.
