After previously announcing that the second Earthshot Prize awards ceremony will be taking place in the United States, the couple revealed the exact location on Twitter on Wednesday, sharing that they are heading to the city of Boston in December.
“In 2022, we’re back and bringing Earthshot to the USA where we’ll award the next five winners of the Prize,” William, who created the global environment awards in October 2020, says in a video on Twitter.
The video then cuts to Red Sox All-Star Xander Bogaerts from the home of the iconic baseball team at Fenway Park.
“And we will be doing it right here in Boston,” Bogaerts says from the outfield.
Inspired by President John F. Kennedy‘s famed 10-year goal of landing on the moon (known as Moonshot), the Earthshot Prize aims to promote impactful approaches to the world’s most pressing environmental challenges.
During their visit to Boston, Massachusetts, the couple will also spotlight and celebrate the “inspiring” city for their work on addressing the impacts of climate change and building a resilient future, they said in a statement.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were last in the U.S. in 2014 during their visit to New York. Their first visit to the U.S. together was shortly after their royal wedding in 2011, when they headed to Los Angeles.
Kate and Prince William, 40, hinted that an announcement was imminent on July 19, when they shared a question on Twitter.
