Jerusalem, Israel. 26th June, 2018. HRH Prince WILLIAM ARTHUR PHILIP LOUIS of Wales, the Duke of Cambridge, partakes in a memorial ceremony for Jewish Holocaust victims at Yad Vashem Holocaust Museum's Hall of Remembrance, starting a three day tour of Israel and the West Bank. The British royal family has an honorable connection to the history of the Holocaust. In 1993, Princess Alice of Battenberg and Greece, great grandmother of Prince William, was recognized as Righteous Among the Nations by Yad Vashem for her role in rescuing the Cohen family in Greece during the Holocaust. In 1994 the Duke of Edinburgh, Prince William's grandfather, planted a tree in his mother's honor at Yad Vashem.
