Prince William in a Ramallah enjoying a bite of Falafel

During his first official visit of a member of the British royal family to the Palestinian territories, Prince William was received warmly in Ramallah where he was serenaded by young musicians and dancers

Samah Nassar, a member of the Ramallah Municipality, told Al Arabiya English “The Ramallah municipality made sure that it was clear what the city represents from interreligious Christian and Muslim co-existence, and was very keen to evoke the historical, cultural and civilizational symbols of the Palestinian people by taking Prince William to visit the city’s old institutions like Ramallah Friends Schools and to see the historical Palestinian embroideries and other arrangements through which we sought to convey a message that we are a living nation with a history rooted in this land wanting freedom to continue to live normally.”

Following the official reception, the prince was taken to a public souk where he took a moment at a Falafel vendor’s kiosk to eat a fresh fried piece of the traditional food. He then moved to another kiosk selling the famous Palestinian traditional Safiha (a mini meat pie) unable to resist its fresh smell.
