Prince William has held a climate meeting with the President of Ecuador ahead of unveiling this year’s Earthshot Prize finalists on his solo trip to New York.
The Prince of Wales confidently strode into the meeting, beaming as he walked past an Andy Warhol print of his late grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II.
The Prince of Wales arrived at Newark airport last night for his two-day trip across the pond. After landing, he said it was ‘so good to be back’ and heaped praise on the US, saying ‘no-one does optimism and ingenuity like the American people’.
William, who flew commercial and was travelling without the Princess of Wales, went straight from the airport to Governor’s island, which sits in New York Harbour, yesterday.
With William away on business, Princess Kate continued with her own engagements as she was this morning pictured visiting a charity back home in east London.
The Prince of Wales is in New York to announce the 15 finalists of this year’s Earthshot Prize, which awards companies and projects focusing on climate solutions.
He helped found the awards in 2020 and each year five winners get £1million towards their project.
Upon arrival to the US, William said: ‘It’s so good to be back in United States. No one does optimism and ingenuity like the American people, so it’s only right we unveil this year’s Earthshot finalists in New York City.
