“This morning I went to Yad Vashem on my first official engagement. It was a profoundly moving experience. It brought back powerful memories of the visit my wife Catherine and I made last year to Stutthof concentration camp,” the prince said.

William is making a first official visit to Israel and the Palestinian Territories by a member of the British royal family. Earlier, he met Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and President Reuven Rivlin in Jerusalem, and on Wednesday he will meet Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas in Ramallah.
