Kensington Palace has announced that the Prince William Earthshot Award will be presented in Boston this year in honor of President John F. Kennedy’s Moon Shot Competition.

The annual ceremony, first launched in London in 2021, will take place in early December and has raised the chances that the 40-year-old Duke and Duchess of Cambridge could make a short trip to the US.

Inspired by Kennedy’s “Shot to the Moon” proposal in the 1960s, which sent the first man to the Moon and led to the development of new technologies, the Earthshot Prize is set to award £50 million over 10 years.

The Duke’s environmental initiative aims to find solutions to restore and protect the planet, with five winners in 2021 receiving £1 million to support their plans, such as projects to restore coral reefs and combat air pollution in India.

Prince William appeared in a short video on social media today to announce Boston as this year’s host. Kennedy was born near the city.

Accordingly, the announcement was made on the anniversary of the moon landing, and the John F. Kennedy Library Foundation will serve as host partner along with Mayor Michelle Wu and the City of Boston.

On September 12, 1962, in a landmark speech at Rice University, President Kennedy gave the nation the daunting task of landing a man on the Moon and returning him safely to Earth within ten years.

In July 1969, the Apollo 11 mission successfully landed the first two people on the moon. Sixty years later, that “spirit of innovation, entrepreneurship and service” continues in Boston, the palace says.

“Today, there is no more important Moonshot than the restoration of the planet, and there is no better place to use the spirit of Moonshot than the city of Boston,” said Caroline Kennedy, daughter of the former president and US Ambassador to Australia.

“It is a great tribute to President Kennedy that The Earthshot Prize will partner with the JFK Library Foundation to host the 2022 ceremony in Boston and inspire a new generation to make a sustainable future possible.”

Mayor Wu said, “At Boston, we’re not just looking to improve Boston’s ability to tackle climate change — we’re setting an example of how creative, community-driven climate leadership can make a difference.”

“We are honored and delighted that Boston has been selected to host the Earthshot Awards 2022.

“This is an opportunity to bring global attention to our climate change efforts and demonstrate that together we can meet the urgent needs of the present with innovative solutions that protect our planet and future generations.”

Each year, the Earthshot Prize aims to find and reward solutions to the five goals of Earthshot: protecting and restoring nature; Purify our air; Revive our oceans; Build a waste-free world; and fix our climate.

Each winner will receive £1 million to scale their solutions.

In 2021, sources claimed that William and wife Kate are “very focused on being high status in the US” after “their popularity plummeted due to an Oprah interview”.

Insiders have told Vanity Fair’s Cathy Nicholl that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are likely to make a high-profile visit across the ocean to boost their popularity.

The source added:[They] realize that their popularity has dwindled a bit since the interview with Oprah, and that the focus now is on getting that support back.”

During an explosive interview last March, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex shocked the royal family when Meghan said Kate made her cry and claimed one of the royal insiders wondered what color their son Archie’s skin would be.

The insider added that the couple were very sensitive to the impact the explosive interview had on their profile.

Duke and Duchess the last official visit to the US was to New York in December 2014 when Kate was pregnant with Princess Charlotte. They had previously visited California at the end of a tour of Canada in 2011.

It is not known if the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will visit California to meet Meghan and Harry if they are in the US.
