According to some reports, Prince William might be the first British royal ever to do this. He might make history on his royal tour to the Middle East.
The Duke of Cambridge will pay visit to Western Wall during his trip to Israel.
Rabbi Shmuel Rabinovich, during a meeting with Israeli reporters, said the British officials have looked into the possibility of a visit to the Western Wall.
A spokesperson at the British embassy in Israel said that they could not give any more information about the visit than what has already been released.
Kensington Palace made no mention of a visit to the Western Wall when it announced Prince William’s itinerary earlier this week.
However, the statement read as: “The Duke of Cambridge, William will visit the occupied Palestinian territories. Further details will be announced at a later date”.

“And, visiting these territories will allow his Royal Highness to understand and pay respects to the religions and histories of the region”.
While, it is unclear that if William will be visiting the place, it is also said that if he does, he will be making a history. How? Well, he will be the first British royal to visit the place. Even, Queen Elizabeth has never visited the Western Wall.
Something about the Western Wall.
Rabinovich says that the Western Wall is a place of prayer for all religions. The Western Wall is considered a holy place due to its connection to the Temple Mount.
It is a small segment of a far longer ancient retaining wall, known as the Western Wall. The wall was originally erected as part of the expansion of the Second Jewish Temple.

Because of the Temple Mount entry restrictions, the Wall is the holiest place where Jews are permitted to pray. Though the holiest site in the Jewish faith lies behind it.
