More about the visit;

Quote:
Prince Charles' tour in the Middle East is his first to Israel for an 'official visit' and his first time in the West Bank ever.
He will meet @PresidentRuvi in Jerusalem and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas in Bethlehem.
Quote:
The focus of the visit to Israel will be the #WorldHolocaustForum at
@yadvashem to mark the 75th anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz-Birkenau camp. Prince Charles will be one of just five world leaders who will speak at the official commemoration on 23 January

I think the World Holocaust Forum is such a big engagement, the fact Charles is one of only five leaders to speak at the commemoration is a huge mark of respect.

Well The Duchess of Cambridge didn’t accompany Prince William on his recent tour to a similar area....

Yes indeed. A very significant event. I'm sure the role of his paternal grandmother may in part have led to this invitation to actually speak in addition to his presence as being the official representative of the United Kingdom (Commonwealth?).

It seems Camilla, who does dislike flying, doesn't join him on tours that are only a day or two long but quite far away. I think that is pretty fair, they don't have to do everything together.

I don't find it unusual that Camilla isn't to accompany Charles on this trip. Most likely she had other engagements on her calendar and Charles sees this as a "working" trip as well as an "official" visit and the purposes of the visit are laid out clearly.

Its not a tour where Charles will not be out to meet and greet the people and touring the area. He's there to commemorate a specific event which is the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp. He is one of five world leaders to be invited to attend this special commemoration.

As a man that is quite spiritually concerned about all religions and has a grandmother that is buried in Israel among the "righteous", I find it fitting that Charles is attending.

Grand Duchess Maria Teresa of Luxembourg does not always accompany her husband on foreign trips either...for the same reason.

She isn't going to Israel and the Occupied Territories with Charles because she is going solo to Poland for the commemorations of the lilberation of the Auschwitz there. This was announced at the same time as Charles' visit to Israel and the Occupied Territories. https://www.princeofwales.gov.uk/news

Edward will be attending an event in the UK as well.

Camilla's going to the commemorations at Auschwitz-Birkenau, and William and Kate will be attending an event in London

I thought Prince Charles's speech was wonderful, especially when so many of the politicians used the occasion to make digs about current political issues. He spoke very well.

It's great to see Charles on this visit and I agree that his speech was wonderful during the commemorations. And, not only as the Prince of Wales, but it was also fitting to have him there as the main speaker being the grandchild of a Righteous Amongst the Nations.

Prince Charles has had a fruitful week.
The topics that he has addressed are tragic and yet real life catastrophies that require World leaders to reflect upon for future hope.
Charles showed a high level of both research and compassion.

Hiistory is always intensely interesting when the personal experiences of people are examined. I found individual stories told at the gathering fascinating.

The Holocaust is distressing to imagine but we must never forget.

With the focus being on the recent visit to Israel and Occupied Palestine and the various different memorial and remembrance services being held around the world on the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz, I thought I'd mention a book that had a profound effect on me in understanding the hell that were those concentration camps and a better understanding of my own self.

It is written by a Holocaust survivor and the book is "Man's Search For Meaning" by Viktor Frankl.

"Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms—to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way."
