Duke of Cambridge due to arrive this summer after years of rejected invitations
Prince William will become the first British royal to make an official visit to Israel and Palestine, an unexpected move given that political sensitivities in the region have stalled a formal trip for decades.
Kensington Palace said in a tweet that the Duke of Cambridge would visit later this year as part of a Middle East tour:

Nechama & I were happy to hear @KensingtonRoyal announcement, and look forward to welcoming #PrinceWilliam, the Duke of Cambridge, on an official visit to the State of #Israel later this year. A very special guest, and a very special present for our 70th year of independence.
