Prince William Recreates Kate Middleton’s Family Photo In Jordan From The ‘80s

Prince William has recreated one of Kate Middleton’s childhood photographs while on a royal tour in the Middle East.

During his trip to Jordan, the Duke of Cambridge visited the Roman ruins at Jerash and found the same spot where Kate posed with her father, Michael, and sister, Pippa.

The Middletons’ picture was taken in the 80s when the family lived in Jordan, and Prince William spoke of how she “loved” her time there in a speech at the start of his tour.

The Duchess moved with her family in 1884, aged two, and attended an English nursery until 1986 when they retuned to the UK.

While at the archaeological site, he walked through the cardo maximus, which was the main thoroughfare of the ancient city. 

A large canvas displaying the Middleton family’s picture was placed at the same spot where the photograph was taken, and Prince William stopped to joke with Crown Prince Hussein about his father-in-law “looking very smart in his flip-flops."
