  • GETTYPrince William will honour his great-grandmother in Jerusalem

Britain's Prince William meets Jordanians working in education during a birthday party in honor of his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, at the residence of the British ambassador in the Jordanian capital Amman on 24 June, 2018.

On Monday, the 36-year-old royal went to the very same archaeological site that a young Kate Middleton visited in Jordan to recreate a family photo taken more than 30 years ago.

The visit to Jerash came on the second day of a five-day tour that also takes William to Israel and the occupied Palestinian territories.

The Middleton family spent almost three years living in Jordan between 1984 and 1987, after Michael's work as a flight dispatcher for British Airways brought them to the country.

"It reflects, I think, very accurately the reality of a true global Britain and a Britain that is engaged not just with the region but also with the world".

Wills has been enjoying his landmark visit to the Middle East, sitting down to watch the England vs Panama game with the Crown Prince of Jordan before visiting the first century Roman city of Jerash.

Mohamed Salah Considering Quitting Egypt
However, suggestions Salah is ready to retire from the global game were dismissed by the Egyptian FA, per BBC Sport. The Pharaohs take on Saudi Arabia on Monday, June, 25, amid suggestions Salah could pull out of worldwide football.

Upon arriving in Jordan on Sunday night, William expressed how much his wife wanted to be with him in Jordan.

William's tour marks the first time a member of the British royal family has visited Israel on behalf of the United Kingdom government.

Over decades, Jordan has taken in waves of refugees, most recently those fleeing civil war in Syria.

Before settling down to soccer, William spoke at a garden reception at the British Embassy, praising Britain's historic ties with Jordan and the kingdom's commitment to hosting Syrian and Palestinian refugees. The iconic spot was marked with a large picture of Kate with her dad, Michael Middleton and sister, Pippa - which was released by her family ahead of her marriage to William back in 2011.

The prince will visit a refugee programme in the country, as well as a women's charity.
