The second in line to the throne will arrive in Jordan a day earlier at the start of a five-day tour of the Middle East.

The 26 June will be spent in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv, as will the next day when Ramallah will also be added to the schedule. The trip will conclude in Jerusalem on 28th.

Following the announcement Simon Johnson, CEO of the Jewish Leadership Council said: “The programme for the Duke of Cambridge’s visit to Israel and the Palestinian Territories sounds fascinating. His Royal Highness will enjoy experiencing the beauty, vibrancy and history of the Region. I am sure that the Duke will enjoy engaging with lots of people from a range of age groups in Israel. The Duke of Cambridge’s visit, following HRH The Prince of Wales joined the community to celebrate Israel at 70 at the Royal Albert Hall last night, further cements the relationship between the UK and Israel. I wish His Royal Highness a most enjoyable visit”
