Britain’s Prince Charles has praised "the warmth of the Palestinian people" during a visit to the West Bank on Friday.

The heir to the British throne was pictured shaking hands with bystanders in Bethlehem before heading into the historic Mosque of Omar.

The Mayor of Bethlehem Anton Salman greeted Charles at the mosque, where the prince signed his name in Arabic in a visitor book. Charles also attended a service at the Church of the Nativity, where he was accompanied by the Greek Orthodox Patriarch of Jerusalem Theophilos III.

Charles is on the second day of a two-day trip to the region, having spent Thursday in Jerusalem at an event to commemorate the liberation of Auschwitz.

The 71-year-old addressed the World Holocaust Forum, which was attended by more than 40 heads of state and government. He warned that "the lessons of the Holocaust are still relevant to this day".

Charles is the most senior British royal to visit Palestine. His son Prince William visited the West Bank in June 2018, the first official visit of a British royal to the occupied Palestinian territories.
