Preparations are underway for William and Kate's official Sheva Brachot celebration in Israel on Friday night.

In honour of the Royal couple's nuptials this Friday, a group of British-born Israelis have planned a Shabbat feast worthy of Buckingham Palace.

More than 200 guests have been invited to the street party, to be held in the city of Modi'in.

Dov Newmark, one of the organisers, said he hoped the event would be "fitting tribute to the young couple".

"It's a great opportunity to bring the community together to celebrate. We all wish the Royal Family, and of course the Prince and his future bride a hearty Mazel Tov and a life of happiness".

Mr Newmark added: "We hope they will come and visit us in the Holy Land soon."
