Prince William arrives in Israel

The official royal visit is part of a larger tour of the Middle East for Prince William.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge past year visited the Stutthof camp, following in the footsteps of his father Prince Charles who has long taken a particular interest in honouring survivors of the Holocaust and those who came to Britain on the Kindertransport.

Yad Vashem said Princess Alice "hid the three members of the Cohen family - Rachel, Tilda and Michelle - in her palace in Athens during the Nazi occupation of Greece".

"Watching the replay of the England game that we missed earlier today", says another caption showing the cavernous room where the two princes are watching the game.

This official trip is significant as William will become the first British royal to pay an official visit to Israel and the Palestinian territories.

William, second in line to the throne, placed a wreath at the Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial's Hall of Remembrance, and meet two men who survived the Nazi genocide thanks to British intervention.

Henry Foner, 86, and Paul Alexander, 80, were among thousands of Jewish children taken in by Britain as part of the 1930s "Kindertransport" from a continental Europe that was falling to German conquest.

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.

Citing 2017 data from Emarketer, Instagram noted that "these days, people are watching less TV and more digital video". The new app, dubbed IGTV , will increase Instagram's video time limit from one minute to 10 minutes for most viewers.

During his walk through the town, William was later greeted by a 2ft by 3ft enlargement of the now famous picture of his wife and her family.

The trip is at the behest of the British government.

"The duke is not a political figure". Also on the agenda for the duke?

His tribute came in a message for the guestbook at Yad Vashem, which he toured on the opening morning of his historic visit. "And he really wants to get under the skin of the country", Quarrey added.

Prince William's plane from Jordan landed on the tarmac at Ben Gurion Airport between Tel Aviv and Jerusalem around 6 pm.

On Monday, the 36-year-old royal went to the very same archaeological site that a young Kate Middleton visited in Jordan to recreate a family photo taken more than 30 years ago.

However, Prince William's father, Prince Charles, visited Israel in 2016 where he attended the funeral of former Israeli Prime Minister and President, Shimon Peres.

The prince wrote an entry in the guest book of the Yad Vashem, saying: "It has been a profoundly moving experience to visit Yad Vashem today".
