There is speculation in American media about a visit by William to his brother Harry, after the announcement by the British Crown Prince that he will travel to the United States with his wife Kate in early December for the presentation of a climate award in Boston.
Their last visit to the US dates back to 2014, when the couple visited Washington and New York. William would this week the Earthshot Prize Innovation Summit attend, but canceled his visit due to the Queen’s funeral. “While I cannot be with you in person in these sad circumstances, I am delighted to be able to join you in video form while you are in New York for the Earthshot Prize Innovation Summit,” he said in a recorded video.
“During this period of mourning, I get a lot of support from your enthusiasm, optimism and dedication to the Earthshot Prize and what we are trying to achieve,” added the Prince of Wales. According to William, protecting the environment was a matter close to Queen Elizabeth’s heart. “I know she would have been delighted to hear about this event.”
The Earthshot Prize was created by William for initiatives that fight against climate change. Last year, the prize, which consists of an amount of 1 million pounds, was awarded for the first time to five initiatives in London. “Kate and I are really looking forward to our trip to Boston in December,” said the Crown Prince.
The report of William’s trip to the US has sparked speculation in US media about whether he will take the opportunity to visit Prince Harry. In 2020, William’s younger brother left for California with Meghan Markle. Harry and his wife now live in Santa Barbara with their children Archie (3) and Lilibet (1). If William decides to visit Harry, it would be the first official visit by a member of the British Royal Family since Harry’s move to the US.
