On Monday, June 25, Prince William arrived at a historical site in Jordan. Sadly, Kate Middleton was unable to attend as she was home with their three children.
However, Kate wasn't far from William's mind. In fact, he was standing in the exact same spot as Kate did when she was just three years old.
William, 36, traveled to the archaeological site of Jerash, which is a first-century city that is home to the biggest Roman remains in the Mediterranean region. It's also one of Jordan's best tourist attractions.
When Kate was just a toddler with her sister, Pippa, and her parents, they lived in Jordan while her father, Michael, worked for British Airways in Amman.
At the age of three, 3-year-old Kate and her sister visited the ruins with her parents. The photo was captured and then shared with the world shortly before Kate and William got married in 2011.
Today, William arrived at that exact same spot as his wife. He captured the picture and Kensington Palace shared a side-by-side of the two photos.
On Sunday night, shortly after he arrived at a party, William told the crowd how much Kate is wishing she could be there on the trip.
She " is very sorry she cannot be here with me so soon after the birth of our son Louis, but her family remembers very fondly the almost three years she spent here as a child when her father worked for British Airways in Amman,” he said.
“Catherine’s experience is not unique; the interchange between our two countries is real and deep: work, study, tourism and family links," the prince added.
Monday evening, Prince William will be traveling to Jerusalem making him the first royal member to have visited Israel for official business reasons. Once he flies into Tel Aviv, he will be staying at the Jerusalem's King David Hotel for three days.
