"The Duke of Cambridge visits Jerash, the same site that The Duchess of Cambridge visited, aged 4, with her sister and father when the family lived in Jordan", the palace captioned the pics.

When he was shown the image of his wife and her family at the spot, William remarked that he would "need to come back with the family" to re-create it. He will meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Jerusalem and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas in the West Bank city of Ramallah at a time of widening rifts between the two sides.

In Israel, the duke will visit the Holocaust memorial centre Yad Vashem where he will lay a wreath to commemorate the millions of Jews who died during the second world war.

William will be staying at the historic King David Hotel, and will not be accompanied by his wife, Katherine the Duchess of Cambridge, who recently gave birth to the couple's third child.

Though the trip is being billed as non-political, and places a special emphasis on technology and joint Israeli-Arab projects, William will also be meeting with Israeli and Palestinian leaders, and visiting landmark Jerusalem sites at the heart of the century-old conflict.

In a 1994 visit to Yad Vashem, Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, planted a tree there in his mother's honor.

"We know some of the politics are hard, but this is not a political visit".

Britain captured Palestine from the Ottoman empire in 1917 during World War One and administered the territory under global mandate until 1948, pulling out a day before Israel declared independence. "And he really wants to get under the skin of the country", Quarrey added.

Israel defines Jerusalem as its "eternal and indivisible" capital, while the Palestinians see east Jerusalem as the capital of their future state.

Hall said they were following "decades" of rulings in the United Nations that declare east Jerusalem, including the Old City, part of the occupied Palestinian territories.

A spokesman for the prince, acknowledging the "well-known" and "complex challenges" in the Middle East, said William's tour, like other visits overseas by members of the British royal family, will be non-political.

The trip is at the behest of the British government.

The Daily Mail published a video on YouTube of the prince as he viewed the photo with Jordanian Prince Al-Hussein bin Abdullah II, was was showing him around the area.

"It is important to emphasis that the Duke is not a political figure, this is not a political visit", he said.
