Welcome Prince William! The Netanyahus hosted at their Jerusalem residence the first British royal to visit Israel in an official capacity.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his wife Sara welcomed His Royal Highness, Prince William, the Duke of Cambridge, at the Prime Minister’s Residence in Jerusalem.

Prince William, Queen Elizabeth’s grandson and second-in-line to the throne, made history Monday when he became the first British royal to pay an official visit to Israel.

Israel is very excited about the visit, and Netanyahu welcomed the historic event saying that William “will be received here with great affection.”

Netanyahu gave the Duke of Cambridge a replica Righteous Among the Nations Certificate for Princess Alice, his great-grandmother, who was granted the title in 1993.
