Prince William's "historic" visit to the Middle East

Prince William watches England thrash Panama in replay

"The theme that repeated itself throughout the entire visit was his wondering of what kind of deep hatred could have driven people to commit such horrific acts", Yad Vashem Chairman Avner Shalev said. Jordan hosts about 660,000 registered Syrian refugees, but says the actual number of displaced Syrians in the kingdom is twice as high.

Sharing the moment were Holocaust survivors, including two, Henry Foner, 86, and Paul Alexander, 80, who were among the thousands of Jewish children taken to Britain in safety on the Kindertransport.

Kate, also 36, is on maternity leave from royal duties after giving birth to the couple's third child, Louis, in April. "She is very upset that I am coming here without her". He'll be here to see a little bit of the country and to get to meet some of the people here.

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".

Saudi Arabia v Egypt 25 June 2018
Just minutes later, however, a second penalty was given to Saudi Arabia , and this time converted by Salman Al Faraj . Egypt's hordes of supporters showed their support for Salah, roaring him on whenever he got near the ball.

Thanks to her, the Cohen family survived and today lives in France, it said. The princess died in 1969, and in 1988 her remains were brought to Jerusalem.

"Having a relaxing evening with His Royal Highness Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, after his first day in #OurJordan", Hussein wrote in a caption that accompanied one of two pictures of the pair.

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.

He will stay in Jerusalem at the King David Hotel, former headquarters of the British administration during the mandate in Palestine before the creation of the State of Israel in 1948.

Most of the World's Ugliest Dog contestants are up for adoption and the event helps raise awareness of pet rescue and adoption. An English bulldog who has muscular, rounded front legs and an underbite has been crowned the World's Ugliest Dog .

For the 36-year-old William, second in line to the throne, it marks a high-profile visit that could burnish his global credentials.

On Tuesday, he is to lay a wreath at the Holocaust memorial Yad Vashem, before meeting separately with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and President Reuven Rivlin.

William has just begun a five-day tour of the Middle East, with visits to sit Jordan, Israel, and the occupied Palestinian territories, as an outreach effort to help build relationships.

"It is nearly impossible to comprehend this appalling event in history". "I'm very much looking forward to really absorbing and understanding the different issues".
