Prince William arrived in Israel on Monday for the first-ever official visit of a member of the British royal family to the tumultuous region London once ruled.

During the visit, William and Jordan's Crown Prince Hussein stopped in front of an enlarged photo on an easel that showed the Duchess of Cambridge, her father and younger sister Pippa posing against the backdrop of the Jerash ruins.

CNN reports that William is also expected to visit Jerusalem's Old City, the Mount of Olives and the Church of St. Mary Magdalene in the Garden of Gethsemane.

The prince's trip was announced in March and welcomed by Israeli and Palestinian officials.

He will stay in Jerusalem at the King David Hotel, former headquarters of the British administration during the mandate in Palestine before the creation of the State of Israel in 1948.

For the 36-year-old William, second in line to the throne, it marks a high-profile visit that could brandish his worldwide credentials.

JERASH, JORDAN-Britain's Prince William on Monday toured Roman ruins in Jordan, chatted with Syrian refugee children and was greeted by ululating women at a community centre for traditional arts and crafts.

Later in the day, the prince will see Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and President Reuven Rivlin before heading to Jaffa and Tel Aviv on the Mediterranean coast to meet young people participating in a football-based youth programme.

Israel seized the West Bank and east Jerusalem from Jordan in the 1967 Six-Day War.

The visit comes just after Israel marked its 70th anniversary of independence and amid surges of violence along the Gaza border.

"I don't expect many Israelis to stream out on to the streets and greet the vehicle of Prince William".

Henry Foner, who was fostered by a Jewish family in Swansea, Wales, and later served overseas for the British Army, said it was like a fairy tale for a refugee child like himself to meet a member of the royal family eight decades after the country rescued him.

The two royals got together to watch a rerun of Sunday's FIFA World Cup match (England vs Panama) at the Beit Al Urdan Palace in Amman.

Prince William is now visiting the country alone as the Duchess is still on maternity leave, but we're sure she was only delighted with this little tribute to her childhood.
