CWN Editor's Note: The stop at the basilica was part of the first official visit by a member of the British family to the Holy Land since Israel became a state in 1948. According to the report, “the prince knelt down and put his hand on” the stone where Christ’s body was anointed for burial, then “prayed for a long time” at Christ’s tomb. He later “took the stairs leading to Calvary where he lit a candle that he planted in the sand.”
