Kensington Palace has confirmed Prince William will attend the Earthshot Prize Awards without Princess Catherine. It’s believed Kate will remain at home to support her son, Prince George, as he sits for his exams. The prince’s exams will be held the same week as the Earthshot Prize awards and will decide his future education and senior school. The 2023 Earthshot Prize Awards Ceremony will be held in Singapore on October 7. Kensington Palace released the itinerary for Prince William, with his trip taking place from Sunday the 5th of November to Wednesday the 8th.
Kensington Palace has outlined the itinerary for Prince William’s upcoming solo trip to Singapore, confirming Kate Middleton will not be joining him.
It follows speculation last month that the Princess of Wales was planning to stay home in the UK while William attended the annual Earthshot Prize Awards, in order to support their eldest son, Prince George, during his school exams.
It marks the first time Kate will not be present for the ceremony, which is in its third year.https://c4dd9c717bbd6b9fc27ac0793e24a29a.safeframe.googlesyndication.com/safeframe/1-0-40/html/container.html?n=0
The Prince of Wales will head to Singapore for three days in early November, with the awards show being held on Tuesday, November 7.
“The prince is very much looking forward to being in Singapore,” William’s spokesman said at a briefing on Monday.
“The prince wants to really seize the opportunity of being in Southeast Asia to build more momentum around the Earthshot winners and finalists and to put their solutions to some of the biggest environmental challenges we face firmly on the global map.”
The Earthshot Prize was founded by Prince William and the Royal Foundation and aims to “discover, spotlight and help grow innovative solutions that are working to repair and regenerate our planet.”
Five winners are awarded at the annual ceremony for their contributions to environmentalism.
During his trip to Singapore next month, William is expected to take part in the popular local sport of dragon boating, discussions around combating the illegal wildlife trade, and Earthshot events which bring together businesses and investors with finalists to fast-track solutions.
