via Prince William is making royal history visiting Israel and the West Bank – AOL Entertainment

Prince William may have performed his best man duties to a T during brother Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding, but there is a new task at hand for the young father of three — and it will make history.

The Duke of Cambridge will be embarking on a historic trip to Israel, Jordan and the Palestinian territories in June, according to Kensington Palace.

But why is this such an important trip? Well, It will be the first official royal visit to Israel and what the British government calls the “Occupied Palestinian Territories” since 1948, when Britain’s 25-year control of the region ended right before Israel’s independence — and William being second in line to the throne makes it a big deal.
