William has taken several high profile diplomatic assignments in recent years (China, France, Germany, now Israel), which is actually quite surprising considering he is not the heir yet. Good for him and for the UK as he seems to generate positive reactions in all the official visits he and his wife make.

The Duke of Cambridge is taking this on, i’m sure, with all the support and confidence of his family. He will represent his country proudly and I wish him every success.

I agree MissJersey. He's visiting at the request of the Foreign Office and gaining valuable experience in his future role as Head of State. His grandmother and his father both had the opportunity to undertake similar official visits. Other monarchs and heirs-to-the-throne have traveled there as well ie: Felipe. William's been to various Commonwealth nations, the US, China, and now has the chance to meet with the leaders in three other nations. He's going to have the experience of meeting with King Abdullah who has been involved attempting to bring peace to this historic region and to hear from him about his own experiences.

I wonder if he will go see his great grandmother's grave while there? Charles did when he was there in 2016.

I would hope that he'd take the opportunity to visit Princess Alice's grave on behalf of his family.

That would be nice. I would think that visiting her grave would be on the itinerary or if not, I at least hope William will make a private visit.

Perhaps not the best place for you to reflect on your attitude.

Slightly less facetiously, what attitude might you be referring to?

Personally, I see nothing wrong with what the PoW said in private correspondence over 30 years ago.

That said, I also don't think that was the impediment to the PoW making the trip. I suspect the idea was for Prince William to make the trip to pave the way for a subsequent trip by C&C sometime in the future.

IMO this will be the most significant visit that William has embarked upon to date. I am hoping that he'll have the opportunity to meet with HM King Abdullah in Jordan.

I will be watching this trip very closely. Israel/Palestine peace work is something I am very involved in. I am also partly from the region so it will be interesting to see such a high profile trip. I can guarantee that Abdullah and Rania will be on hand for the Amman portions.

I have some doubts about this trip, but hope William prepares himself thoroughly. I am assuming BP will have more of a grip on this trip since KP's staff is...well there is room for improvement there.

I believe that the Foreign Office will be thoroughly preparing William and any others accompanying him on this significant visit to one of the world's most troubled and historic regions. This will be the first official visit by a member of the British Royal Family and undoubtedly everyone involved will be aware of the importance of this visit.

I just learned about the trip from an article on the BBC webpage. Wow! Very big news.

I can’t think of a time when William didn’t seem well prepared including on high profile occasions like the trip to China and on occasions when lives depended on him and his team in his former career. I can’t see this trip being any different and I’m sure he, like every royal who undertakes this sort of visit, will have been walked through the whole thing almost minute by minute by the most appropriate and qualified people.

Further details about The Duke of Cambridge's visit to Jordan, Israel, and the Occupied Palestinian Territories have been released

In Jordan, The Duke of Cambridge will be able to build on the strong links that exist not only between the two countries, but also those that exist between their respective Royal families who have visited each other many times over the years.

In Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories, The Duke of Cambridge's visit will be the first official tour on behalf of the Government by a Member of the @RoyalFamily.

The Duke will meet young entrepreneurs, view vibrant tech and media sectors, witness historic cultures being protected and interpreted for the 21st century, and meet people from a variety of backgrounds – including refugees – with a particular focus on young people.

The Duke will also meet with senior political and religious leaders in all three places, as well as a wide range of people drawn from across business, civil society, the arts and media and other sectors at receptions organised by the UK’s three missions.

The Duke is looking forward to building a real and enduring relationship with the people of the region, and is pleased that his programme will allow him to meet a number of people from his own generation and young Jordanians, Israelis, and Palestinians.

Prince William will not be carrying a political message when he arrives in the region next week for the first ever official visit by a senior member of the Royal family, and is simply coming to Israel to “celebrate” Israel-UK ties, British ambassador David Quarrey said on Thursday.

“There is no political message, the Duke is not a political figure,” Quarrey told reporters at a briefing at his Ramat Gan residence where William, the Duke of Cambridge, will hold a reception for some 350 people next Tuesday night.

Prince William arrives in Jordan for the start of his trip

Prince William is welcomed to Jordan by Crown Prince Hussein | Daily Mail Online

"Prince William couldn't watch the @England match live and avoided finding out the score all afternoon. He sat down with the Crown Prince of Jordan to watch a rerun after dinner at the Beit Al Urdun Palace."

Wow with shorter hair and his beard, CP Hussein resembles his grandfather and namesake the late King Hussein. I had not realized that the King and Queen would be absent for this trip. This is a learning experience for both future monarchs IMO.
