Prince William and Kate Middleton press forward with Earthshot rehearsals amid drama

Prince William andKate Middleton have been pictured pressing on with rehearsals for the Earthshot Prize ceremony just a day after the release ofPrince Harry and Meghan Markle’s controversial Netflix docuseries trailer.

The Prince and Princess of Wales, both 40, are currently embarking on their first visit to the US in eight years and are currently in Boston, Massachusetts ahead of tonight’s Earthshot Prize Awards ceremony.

However, the couple’s US trip appears to have been overshadowed by the publication of the trailer forPrince Harry andMeghan ’s upcoming docuseries, which was released on 1 December by streaming giant Netflix.

Despite the trailer proving divisive, William and Kate have pushed forward with their work surrounding the Earthshot Prize Awards and have given fans a glimpse inside a private rehearsal ahead of today’s ceremony.

Hosted at the MGM Music Hall, the Prince and Princess of Wales will celebrate the work being done by individuals and organisations across the world to help reduce our environmental impact on the planet.

In black and white images released from the event, Kate can be seen walking across a brightly lit stage which is surrounded by various plants and foliage while Prince William can be seen smiling from ear to ear as he engages in a conversation.

Besides highlighting the importance of tackling climate change, the Earthshot Prize Awards ceremony is set to be a star-studded affair and will see the likes of Billie Eilish, Rami Malex and Shailene Woodley all play a role.

As a result,royal insiders have branded the event, which was first founded in 2019 by William, as the heir's "SuperBowl moment of the year".

But besides being somewhat overshadowed by Harry and Meghan, William and Kate’s trip to Boston has also been threatened by the resignation of Lady Susan Hussey after she questioned a black British-born charity boss about where she “really came from”.

William’s godmother, who was the late Queen’s lady in waiting for more than 60 years, resigned from her honorary role as one of three Ladies of the Household and also apologised for making the “unacceptable and deeply regrettable comments”.

The Prince of Wales is understood to have agreed that it was right for Lady Susan to step back from the royal household and a Kensington Palace spokesperson told reports in the US that “racism has no place in our society”.

They added: “The comments were unacceptable, and it is right that the individual has stepped aside with immediate effect.”
