William plans historic visit to Occupied Palestinian Territories


The Duke of Cambridge is to make an historic official trip to Israel, Jordan and the Occupied Palestinian Territories, Kensington Palace said.

It is the first time an official visit has been made to the Occupied Palestinian Territories by a member of the British royal family, the palace said.

The royal tour this summer will be the most sensitive the Duke - who is now a full-time royal - has ever undertaken.

The Palace said the visit is at the request of Government and has been welcomed by the Israeli, Jordanian and Palestinian authorities.

Further details will be announced in due course.
