Prince William Wears Yarmulke At Wailing Wall

[ Edited ]

Afterwards, he went to visit the tomb of Princess Alice , his grandfather Philip's mother, at the Church of St. Mary Magdalene where he laid flowers.  Alice saved a Jewish family from the Nazis when she gave them shelter at her palace in Greece.

I should have added that William did place a prayer into the wailing wall and was very solemn about it. 

 

Hopefully nobody will steal it and put it on Ebay.  Smiley Sad

Good for him.  I would expect no less.  It is a matter of reverence, respect and for him also protocol.

The more I learn the more I realize how little I know.
Are you setting an example or being an example?

@NicksmomESQ  You are welcome.

 

Being Jewish myself, I don't mean this in a flip way, but I think he looks great in the yarmulke, esp. since he is balding.  I have to admit, though, that it looks incongruous to see a future King of England and head of the Church of England wearing a yarmulke.

I wonder how he - or anyone bald or with with close-cropped hair - kept the yarmulke on his head.

@ValuSkrI think we can rule out bobby pins!  Perhaps some of that Hollywood two-sided tape?

I follow Kensington Royal on Instagram, they've been posting numerous photos of his trip. Very enjoyable to follow.

The Prince wears it out of respect just like any decent person should do.
