Very invested against climate change, Prince William is preparing to inaugurate this Sunday, October 17, the awarding of Earthshot. An important event for the Duke of Cambridge, for which his father, Prince Charles, did not hide his pride.
This is one of the latest projects of the Duke of Cambridge. This Sunday, October 17, Prince William will reward five people with an Earthshot award for their innovative ideas in the fight against global warming. An evening event for the royal family that does not fail to create pride in some members, like Prince Charles. “I am very proud of my son William, his growing commitment to the environment and the bold ambition of the Earthshot award,” said the Prince of Wales, quoted by the website People. He added, “As a world, we must come together to inspire, reimagine and build the sustainable future we so desperately need.”
During the Earthshot Awards ceremony, Prince William will present several awards on behalf of the Royal Foundation. The evening, which is scheduled to take place once a year until 2030, aims to turn pessimism about environmental issues into optimism by celebrating those who are trying to protect our oceans, air or land. Several personalities such as Emma Watson and Kate Middleton will present the awards, which will be followed by performances by Ed Sheeran, Shawn Mendes and Coldplay.
Prince George is already committed to ecology
By investing in the ecology, Prince William wishes to “look his children straight in the eye”, explained Jason Knauf, Executive Director of the Royal Foundation. The Duke of Cambridge would thus have asked himself this question: “What is the maximum, positive and personal contribution I can make over the next ten years to fight against climate change?” A commitment that Prince William has already passed on to his children, including Prince George. “[He] recently did some litter picking with his school,” he said in an interview with the BBC. Enough to make him proud, as his own father is already proud of him.
