The Duke of Cambridge has vowed to work towards peace in the Middle East, it is reported.

William became the first British royal to travel to Israel and the Palestinian Territories when he embarked on a five-day tour of the region earlier this week.

The Duke sat down with Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas, and carried with him a “message of peace” from Israel’s president Reuven Rivlin in an effort to rekindle relationships.

Now, the Sunday Mirror has reported the Duke wishes to make efforts to help the delicate situation in the area.

The tour came 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.

The paper quoted William as telling aides: “This is the start of something new. I will forever honour my commitments to the people I have met.”
