Prince William watches England thrash Panama in replay

William's marks the first time a member of Britain's royal family visited Israel as an official representative of the London government.

Three decades of British rule between the two world wars helped establish some of the fault lines of today's Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and Britain's withdrawal in 1948 led to the eventual establishment of Israel and Jordan.

He is set to visit Jerusalem tomorrow, where he will meet Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu.

While on tour in Jordan on Monday, William visited the ruins of the Roman city of Jerash, where Kate went to as child when her family lived in Jordan.

After vowing to bring the whole family back to the site, William gamely posed for a picture by himself, dressed in a casual jacket and sunglasses.

It comes during a period of tension in the area - dozens of Palestinians have been killed by Israeli forces during recent protests at the border between Israel and the Gaza Strip in the run-up to celebrations marking the 70th anniversary of the founding of Israel. Four days after his birth, William and Kate announced Louis' name, revealing his official royal moniker to be Prince Louis Arthur Charles. The memorial has recognized Prince William's great-grandmother, Princess Alice, as Righteous Among the Nations for her role in rescuing Jews during the Holocaust. Accompanied by Britain's chief rabbi, he will lay a wreath in its Hall of Remembrance and meet two Holocaust survivors who were given refuge in Britain as children.

He will then meet with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas in Ramallah in the West Bank on June 26. "And he really wants to get under the skin of the country", Quarrey added.

He is expected to tour the Western Wall, Muslim and Christian holy sites, and occupied Palestinian territories.

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.

"The duke is not a political figure".

Prior to watching England thrash their South American rivals 6-1 on Sunday evening, William spoke at a garden reception at the British Embassy, praising Britain's historic ties with Jordan and the kingdom's commitment to hosting Syrian and Palestinian refugees.

On Wednesday, morning, Prince William will take part in another "cultural event" in Tel Aviv, before meeting with young children at the city's Beit Ha'ir Museum.
