William and Kate spotlight sustainability and diplomacy at the 2022 Earthshot Awards

At the inaugural Earthshot Awards ceremony last year Kate Middleton wore a lilac Alexander McQueen gown that had been in her closet for a decade because the award encourages her guests to think about sustainability when choosing their outfits. So it was a little surprise on Friday night when Prince William and Kate arrived on the recycled green carpet at MGM Music Hall in Boston wearing a never-before-seen light green dress by Solace London.

It turns out the princess rented her dress from British platform HÜRR, which aims to squash fashion’s reputation as one of the world’s most polluting industries. She paired the dress with a signature pair of glittering Gianvito Rossi pumps and a very special family heirloom from the Windsor family, a cabochon emerald and diamond choker necklace that once belonged to Diana, Princess of Wales. The necklace was a gift from Queen Elizabeth II for Diana’s wedding in 1981 King Charles III, and she made headlines by wearing it as a choker once.

The decision to rent the dress was one of the few steps the couple took to limit their carbon footprint on their trip to the United States, which also includes a British Airways commercial flight to and from Logan Airport and the driving City contained by Range Rover hybrids in the United States.

The couple were joined at the ceremony by members of the Earthshot Prize Council Indra Nooyi, Hindou Oumarou Ibrahim, and Naoko Yamazaki. radio station Clara Ampho and actors Daniel Dae Kim hosted the night with live performances from Annie Lennox, Chloe x Halle, and Ellie Goulding, and recorded posts Billie Eilish and Cate Blanchett.

During the ceremony, Kate took the stage to present the Clean Air category award to Mukuru Stoves, a Kenyan company that makes safer and cleaner cookstoves and was founded five years ago. She clapped her eyes in admiration as a video told the story of the company’s founder Charlotte Magayi, who designed the product after her daughter was burned by an inferior stove.

Shortly after establishing the Earthshot Prize in 2020, William mentioned that he was inspired by President John F. Kennedy’s quest to send American astronauts to the moon. On Friday morning, William met with Caroline Kennedy, the daughter of the former President and current US Ambassador to Australia, and her two children, Jack and Tatjana Schlossberg, at the JFK Presidential Library, where they also viewed historical documents related to the space program.
