Prince William will soon be on a trip to Middle East. And, he will visit a very special spot during his upcoming tour of Jordan, Israel, it’s been revealed.
And, the place he will be visiting has something special.
The Duke of Cambridge will visit the spectacular archaeological site at Jerash. It is a first century Roman city that is one of the largest Roman remains anywhere in the Mediterranean region.
And, it is also the place where a young Kate posed for a family picture with her father, Michael Middleton and sister, Pippa, when her family lived in Jordan during her childhood.
The Middleton family released the picture when Kate and William announced their engagement.
A statement on the visit from the palace confirms: “It is, by the way, the site where the young and beautiful Catherine Middleton is pictured standing on a pile of stones with her father and young sister. It is of the time when the Middleton family lived in Jordan”.
