Prince William meets Netanyahus in Israel

June 26 (UPI) — Britain’s Prince William met with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu Tuesday as part of his five-day Middle East tour.

William became the first member of the royal family to visit Israel in an official capacity when he arrived Monday.

The prince will also visit occupied Palestinian territories. Wednesday, he will meet with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas in Ramallah in the West Bank.

Earlier Tuesday, William started his tour with a visit to the Yad Vashem Holocaust Museum in Jerusalem, where he spoke with survivors and laid a wreath at the Hall of Remembrance.

He also met with Edith and Phillipe Cohen, two descendants of victims sheltered by Princess Alice, William’s great-grandmother, during the Holocaust.

Monday, William toured Jordan and visited the archaeological ruins of Jerash, a Roman city dating to the first century.

William also met with Sara Netanyahu Tuesday, who was indicted last week on fraud charges.
