The Prince and Princess of Wales plan to visit Boston in December. They will attend an award ceremony of the environmental foundation created by Prince William.
Prince William and his wife Kate Middleton will be in Boston on December 2. This Wednesday, September 21, they were to be in New York, for a first award session of the Prince William Foundation, the Earthshot Prize. The couple canceled their engagements after the announcement of the Queen’s death on September 8.
Although he could not go there in person, Prince William still wanted to take part in the event through a recorded video. He thus stressed that concern for the environment was a concern he shared with the late Queen Elizabeth II: “Environmental protection was a cause dear to my grandmother, and I know that she would have been excited to hear about this event and the support you all have for our Earthshot finalists, the next generation of environmental trailblazers.”
“Our Earthshot decade must inspire action, creativity, and collaboration around the globe. Together we need to ensure the transition to sustainable solutions is the fastest and most endemic change the world has ever known.”@KensingtonRoyal for the #EarthshotInnovationSummit pic.twitter.com/3YKRlAlEoE

Kate Middleton, now Princess of Wales, will travel to the United States alongside her husband. Prince William said: “Catherine and I are very excited to be coming to Boston in December, and we look forward to seeing you all very soon.”
Prince William launched the foundation last year to reward work that strives to find solutions for the climate and the environment. Within the English royal family, he is not the only one to be sensitive to the protection of the planet. Between 1981 and 1996, his grandfather, the late Prince Philip chaired the environmental NGO WWF. His father, King Charles III regularly evokes his attachment to nature and the environmental cause.
