UK’s Prince William Meets Israeli Eurovision Winner, Travels to West Bank

RAMALLAH, Palestine – The United Kingdom’s Prince William arrived in the West Bank on Wednesday after meeting the Israeli winner of the Eurovision song contest in Tel Aviv earlier in the day, as he continued his historic tour of the region.

The Duke of Cambridge, a grandson of Queen Elizabeth II and second in line to the British throne, met Netta Barzilai, who rose to fame last month as the winner of the popular singing competition, before heading to the West Bank where he met the Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas at his office in Ramallah.

“Thank you to the huge Tel Aviv crowds that came to greet The Duke of Cambridge and Netta Barzilai as they enjoyed a walk on Rothschild Boulevard,” Kensington Palace said in a tweet.

The pair enjoyed a fizzy soft drink known locally as “gazoz,” according to the palace.

In the West Bank, the Duke was expected to attend various cultural events and meet young Palestinians, a UK royal family statement said.

He would also visit the Old City of Jerusalem and was scheduled to visit the tomb of his great-grandmother, Princess Alice of Battenberg, at the Russian Orthodox Church of Mary Magdalene.

On Tuesday, William met Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and President Reuven Rivlin, and visited Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial museum, where he laid a wreath and rekindled the eternal flame in remembrance of the Jewish victims of the Holocaust during World War II.

William’s visit was the first such royal visit to Israel and the Palestinian Territories ever to take place, according to his family’s statement.

“The Duke considers it a great privilege to be undertaking the first ever official Royal tour of Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories,” the statement said.
