It's not long now until Prince William goes it alone for his tour of the Middle East. The heir to the British throne will be the first senior member of the family to visit Palestinian Territories when he travels between Jordan and Israel for five days, hoping to shine a light on young people's hopes and ambitions between June 24 and 28.
An early stop will be at the Jerash archeological site where Kate Middleton was pictured as a child when living in Jordan with her family. The Middleton's lived in Amman for two-and-a-half years according to the Daily Telegraph. Her father was a manager at British Airways (her mom was cabin crew) and brought the family there when the now-Duchess of Cambridge was two years old and sister Pippa Middleton was eight months.
William will finish up at the Mount of Olives where his great grandmother on the Duke of Edinburgh's side, Princess Alice, was buried. Prince Charles has also made the visit.
This is his first time in the region and is considered his "most sensitive" tour. "The visit is at the request of Her Majesty's Government and has been welcomed by the Israeli, Jordanian and Palestinian authorities," Kensington Palace previously Tweeted.
