BOSTON – Boston’s royal visit from the newly appointed Prince and Princess of Wales continues. The planned visit was uncertain after the death of Queen Elizabeth II.
During a video appearance Wednesday morning at the Earthshot Prize Innovation Summit in New York, Prince William said he and Princess Catherine are looking forward to coming to New England in December.
Boston will host the 2022 Earthshot Awards.
“Both Catherine and I are so excited to come to Boston in December. We look forward to seeing you very soon,” Prince William said in the video.
Five of the 15 finalists recognized for their solutions to restore the planet will each receive $1 million to continue their work.
Prince William said that as he mourns the loss of his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II cares deeply about protecting the environment.
While in Massachusetts, William and Catherine plan to spotlight and celebrate the ways Boston has addressed the impacts of climate change.
