Plus, what else the royal pair got up to.

It’s one of Jordan’s must-visit spots, so it makes sense that Britain’s Prince William would head to the ancient Roman city of Jerash while he’s in town.

The Duke of Cambridge visited the first-century archeological site on Monday, accompanied by Jordan’s Crown Prince Al Hussein.

Prince William arrived in Jordan on Sunday, checking out an innovation lab in the capital before watching a World Cup match with Crown Prince Hussein at Beit Al Urdun Palace.

Monday’s itinerary had more of a historical focus.

 

The ruins at Jerash are Jordan’s second most popular archeological site, after the city of Petra, and the Duke of Cambridge has a personal connection to them.

When his wife, Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, was a child, she lived with her family in Jordan for two years and visited Jerash.

The Duchess of Cambridge is at home in the UK with her new baby, Prince Louis, but we’re sure the royal couple are exchanging notes via iMessage.

After their time at Jerash, Prince William and Crown Prince Al Hussein headed to the Princess Taghrid Institute, where Jordanian orphans and underprivileged young people can learn new skills.

There, Prince William heard women’s stories of how they were separated from their families and joined them in making bread.

The institute shared its own selection of images from the Duke of Cambridge’s visit:

The rest of the Duke of Cambridge’s time in the Middle East will also include a visit to the West Bank.
