Prince William prayed at the most sacred site accessible to Jews today when he visited the Western Wall in Jerusalem’s Old City. With a kippah skull cap on his head, the Duke of Cambridge placed a written prayer on a folded piece of paper into one of the cracks in the wall, held his right hand against the ancient stones and spent around a minute in quiet contemplation with his eyes shut. William was escorted around the holy site by Britain’s Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis and the rabbi of the Western Wall, Shmuel Rabinovitch, on the last day of his historic visit to the Middle East. A large crowd of Jewish worshipers watched him as he prayed. One man shouted out: ‘We love you’ as the prince prayed. The Western Wall is the most sacred site accessible to Jews as it is the only remaining part of the Temple, held to be uniquely holy in Judaism.
