For nearly three years in the 1980s, the family lived in Jordan where Michael Middleton worked for British Airways. But that's why he was here, because he wanted to take a photo at the same spot where Kate was photographed'. "She is very upset that I am coming here without her".

According to The Telegraph, the 36-year-old royal reportedly laughed at the surprise photo, and pointing to Michael in the snap, joked to the Crown Prince: "Michael's looking very smart in his flip-flops".

Also in the picture was younger sister Pippa and dad, Michael Middleton, standing in the same spot.

Louis, the third child of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, is a younger brother to Prince George and Princess Charlotte, and a great-grandchild of the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh.

Britain's Prince William arrived Monday in Israel as part of a historic five-day tour of the Middle East that marks the first-ever official visit by a member of the royal family. Until now it had been British policy not to make an official royal visit until the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is resolved.

William was reportedly disappointed to miss the England v Panama game on Sunday afternoon as he was travelling to Jordan. The Jordanian crown prince recorded it for him, and the two watched it later Sunday on a huge TV screen at Hussein's residence.

He also enjoyed watching the latest England World Cup match with the Jordanian prince in his luxury bachelor pad.

In fact, officials here say the Israeli government kept remarkably quiet about it - to avoid a major political row even before William had touched down in Tel Aviv. The comments came as Syrian government forces advanced in southern Syria, near Jordan's border, leading to more displacement.

According to Hello! during a reception at the British ambassador to Jordan's residence in the capital of Amman, Rania Malki, chief executive of Save The Children in Jordan, told Prince William that she knew the house that the Middleton family had lived in, as it's now the home of her children's paediatrician.
