Prince Charles may become the first senior member of the Royal Family to visit Israel, according to Eric Moonman, President of the Zionist Federation
“There will be a chance for a senior royal to go to Israel, although it’s unlikely to be the Queen because of her diary and the prominence she gives the Commonwealth,” Moonman said. “So it falls to Prince Charles, or perhaps even Prince William and Princess Catherine.”
It is Prince Charles’ interest in the environment and Israel’s advancemenets in technology and the green sector, that might induce the prince to travel to the Jewish state.
“People who are close to him have told me he has kept abreast of countries which have made a real impression in that area,” Moonman said.
“Prince Charles has one or two Jewish people who he trusts and these are the people, combined with the right approach and a peaceful situation in Israel, who can make it possible.”
The Duke of Edinburgh and Prince Charles have both been to Israel, however they were to attend a burial and a funeral respectively, and the trips were not considered official visits.
