Prince William's visit to Jerusalem has generated a bit of controversy.

"It is regrettable that in Britain they chose to politicise the royal visit", Elkin said, according to Israeli news website Ynet.

The Duke later went to the Palestinian refugee camp of Jalazone to show his and Britain's support for schools threatened by Donald Trump's decision to slash USA aid to the main United Nations agency in the region.

Donning a dark Jewish skullcap for his visit to the Western Wall, William placed a note in a crack between the ancient stones before laying his hand on them and closing his eyes for a few moments.

Prince William's trip also comes at a time when Israel has come under sharp worldwide criticism for firing live rounds at unarmed Palestinian protesters along the Israel-Gaza separation fence.

They are on a site revered by Muslims as the Noble Sanctuary and by Jews as the Temple Mount, where Biblical temples once stood.

The holy sites he toured are in East Jerusalem, captured by Israel in the 1967 Middle East war and annexed in a move that has not won global recognition.

Until now it had been British policy not to make an official Royal visit to Israel and the occupied territories until the Israeli-Palestinian conflict was resolved.

The Duke of Cambridge's Jerusalem leg is by far the most charged of his five-day tour of Jordan, Israel and the Palestinian territories - the first official visit of a member of the British royal family - as he ventures into the heart of world religion and regional politics. Prince Philip's mother, Princess Alice of Battenberg and Greece was honored by Israel for sheltering Jews in Greece during World War II, and was later buried in a crypt in the Church of Mary Magdalene, the Russian Orthodox Church on the Mount of Olives in East Jerusalem.

A devout Christian, she died in London in 1969 and had asked to be buried in Jerusalem, next to her aunt, who like Alice had become a nun and founded a convent.

In 1993, the princess was named as one of the "righteous among the nations", the highest honour Israel's Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial bestows on non-Jews, for hiding three members of the Cohen family in her palace in Athens during World War Two.

Mr Rivlin's position is largely ceremonial and in remarks released to the media after his own meeting with the Prince earlier that day Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made no such request.

Prince William met with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas on Wednesday and inexplicably referred to the Palestinian Authority as a "country".

"My message tonight is that you have not been forgotten", he said". But the Jerusalem sites he visited are central to the century-old conflict and every step he took was closely scrutinized.

However, one Palestinian outside a clinic William visited voiced anger at the legacy of Britain's colonial-era involvement in the Holy Land, citing the 1917 Balfour Declaration.

Abbas appealed to the prince and the British people to support the Palestinian campaign for independence.

There was also grumbling from an Israeli right-wing legislator after a British statement on William's visit listed Jerusalem as being inside occupied Palestinian territory.

Thousands of onlookers gathered behind police barriers to catch a glimpse of the prince, with some shouting "we love William" toward the second in line to the throne.
