Britain’s Prince William concludes two-day visit to Jordan

Prince William, the Duke of Cambridge, concluded a two-day visit to Jordan on Monday.

Earlier today, Prince William visited the ancient city of Jerash where he met young people helped by a charity refugee program.

His visit to Jordan is part of a six-day tour to the Middle East that also comprises Israel and the Palestinian territories.

Late tonight, he is expected to travel to Israel where he will hold meetings on Tuesday with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and President Reuven Rivlin and deliver a speech about the history and geography of Jerusalem’s old city.

Prince William will allocate two days for touring Jerusalem which stirred concerns in Israel that he visit to East Jerusalem may include a visit to the Western side of Al-Aqsa Mosque, or Israeli names the Wailing Wall.

Israeli officials have even warned of consequences if that visit took place.

On Wednesday, he will meet with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas in Ramallah, in the West Bank.

The following day, Prince William will visit Jerusalem’s Old City, the Mount of Olives and the Church of St. Mary Magdalene in the Garden of Gethsemane, where his great-grandmother, Princess Alice — Prince Philip’s mother — is buried.
