New details have been revealed about Prince William and Kate Middleton’s trip to Boston

Final preparations are now being made for Prince William and Kate’s trip to Boston for the Earthshot Award – their first overseas trip since becoming Prince and Princess of Wales. The couple will be publicly welcomed to Boston on Wednesday, Nov. 30, and will spend three days making commitments related to the Earthshot Award — which takes place Friday night — as well as touring the city.

A royal aide stressed that the couple do not see this visit as a traditional royal tour, but an Earthshot-focused trip. However, the source said, they are eager to spend time in Boston meeting the local community and seeing climate change work being done in the area. “Their visit will see them attend a special event with Boston Mayor Michelle Wu, as well as a visit by the Prince to the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum with Ambassador Caroline Kennedy,” Kensington Palace said in a statement. “Recognizing the significant challenges facing the coastal city of Boston as a result of climate change, the Prince and Princess will see firsthand the work local organizations are doing to mitigate the risk of sea level rise.” Kate will also see early childhood work being done at Harvard University’s Center for Child Development.
