Prince William kicks off busy day in Israel at Holocaust memorial

Prince William watches England thrash Panama in replay

Prince William plans to visit her gravesite later in the week as part of his tour of Jerusalem landmarks.

Yad Vashem said Princess Alice "hid the three members of the Cohen family - Rachel, Tilda and Michelle - in her palace in Athens during the Nazi occupation of Greece". "It's great honor for me to be able to say thank you, symbolically, to the British people who saved my life".

CNN reports that William is also expected to visit Jerusalem's Old City, the Mount of Olives and the Church of St. Mary Magdalene in the Garden of Gethsemane.

Wearing a black Jewish skullcap, William laid a wreath in the Hall of Remembrance at the Yad Vashem memorial, where an eternal flame flickers and the names of extermination and concentration camps are engraved in the floor.

The duke will also meet the country's President Reuven Rivlin. "We know some of the politics are hard, but this is not a political visit". "And he really wants to get under the skin of the country", Quarrey added. Jerusalem Affairs Minister Zeev Elkin - who is running for mayor of the city in this year's elections - called the reference a "distortion" that can not "change reality".

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

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.

The British ambassador to Israel, David Quarrey, defended the working of the itinerary, telling reporters that "all the terminology that was used in the program was consistent with years of practice by British governments".

In signing the Yad Vashem guestbook, the prince called it a "profoundly moving experience" and said the Holocaust was "almost impossible to comprehend". He was hosted by Crown Prince Hussein, 23, a member of the Hashemite dynasty Britain helped install in then-Transjordan nearly a century ago.

Meanwhile, William was given a tour by Jordan's Crown Prince Hussein of the preserved first century Roman city of Jerash, and when he reached the spot where the picture of Kate, Michael and Pippa had been taken, he was greeted by a 2ft by 3ft enlargement of the image.

However, Crown Prince Hussein, 23, recorded the game for him, and they watched it together at the Beit Al Urdun Palace in the evening.
