Prince and Princess of Wales to visit Boston for Earthshot Awards

The city of Boston is preparing to welcome the Prince and Princess of Wales this week, as Prince William and Kate Middleton will be in the Massachusetts capital for the second annual Earthshot Prize Awards Ceremony. The British Royals will arrive Wednesday and will be in Boston through Friday when the awards ceremony is scheduled to be held at the MGM Music Hall at Fenway. “We’re thrilled that the Prince and Princess of Wales are going to be visiting Boston,” said Peter Abbott, the British Consul General to New England. The Earthshot Prize, inspired by President John F. Kennedy’s “Moonshot” speech, is an ambitious global environmental prize that aims to discover, celebrate and scale the best solutions to help repair the planet.”It’s that spirit of innovation and optimism that connects the Earthshot prize with the city of Boston, which, of course, has a global reputation for its innovation and ingenuity,” Abbott said. During their trip, the prince and princess will attend a special event with Boston Mayor Michelle Wu, visit Greentown Labs in Somerville, visit the Chelsea nonprofit organization Roca and visit the Center on the Developing Child at Harvard University. Prince William will also visit the JFK Presidential Library and Museum with Ambassador Caroline Kennedy. “I think there will certainly be some moments where people will catch a glimpse of them in Boston,” Abbott said. The winners will be announced at the MGM Music Hall as part of a glitzy show headlined by Eilish, Annie Lennox, Ellie Goulding and Chloe x Halle. It will include a video narrated by naturalist David Attenborough and actor Cate Blanchett. Prizes will be presented by actor Rami Malek, comedian Catherine O’Hara, and actor and activist Shailene Woodley. The show will be co-hosted by the BBC’s Clara Amfo and American actor and producer Daniel Dae Kim. William and Kate’s trip to Boston was first announced in early July. This will be the first time the prince and princess have visited the United States since 2014. The inaugural Earthshot Prize Awards Ceremony was held in October 2021 at Alexandra Palace in London. In Boston, the prince and princess will join activists, innovators, policymakers and performers to celebrate this year’s cohort of 15 global finalists before the five Earthshot winners are announced. One of the 15 finalists is Chicago-based LanzaTech, a company that is turning carbon emissions into sustainable energy and other products, such as yoga clothing and running shoes .
