In Pictures: William makes history with Ramallah visit

The Duke of Cambridge became the first member of the royal family to visit the Palestinian Occupied Territories at the request of the Government.

The Duke of Cambridge had a varied schedule for day four of his Middle East tour, meeting Israel’s 2018 Eurovision Song Contest winner Netta Barzilai on the streets of Tel Aviv, before heading to Ramallah for talks with Palestinian Authority president Mahmoud Abbas.

William was tasked by Israel’s President Reuven Rivlin, who he met on Tuesday, with taking a “message of peace” to the Arab leader.
