The massive event behind Kate Middleton and Prince William’s Boston trip has arrived: The couple attended this evening’s Earthshot Prize Awards ceremony, dressed like British royalty, naturally. The Princess of Wales wore a lime green Solace London dress together with her hair styled down. Kate rented the dress from HURR, a UK rental platform, per People. She accessorized with a diamond and emerald choker that belonged to the late Princess Diana.

The outing comes hours after the princess wore a houndstooth belted dress through the day for a visit to Harvard University. Regarding the looks, the couple shared on Instagram: “Advances in science are at the center of The Center on the Developing Child at Harvard. Great to see how international collaboration with The Centre for Early Childhood is facilitating the sharing of best practice on the early years across the Atlantic.”

While William and Kate have remained focused on events, their visit hasn’t been without some controversy. The 2 arrived amid a racism scandal on the palace and as Netflix released the primary teaser for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s documentary, which features the Duke and Duchess of Sussex addressing the royal drama that led them to step back from their senior working royal family roles. A photograph of Kate and William glaring is featured within the trailer.

Kate and William were out the morning the trailer was released, but, unsurprisingly, neither the Prince and Princess of Wales nor their spokesperson have addressed the documentary. They were also booed at a Boston Celtics basketball game the night before. They’ve not commented on that either. Nevertheless, their spokesperson did address the racism scandal, saying that while the couple was not on the event where the incident took place: “Racism has no place in our society. The comments were unacceptable, and it is true that the person has stepped aside with immediate effect.”

As they arrived in Boston, William shared a note expressing his feelings about embarking on his first royal tour for the reason that Queen passed away.

He wrote:

Catherine and I are delighted to be back in america and are extremely grateful to Governor Baker and The First Lady of Massachusetts for his or her warm welcome into Boston.

On this, our first overseas visit for the reason that death of my grandmother, I would love to thank the people of Massachusetts and particularly of Boston for his or her many tributes paid to the late Queen. She remembered her 1976 bicentennial visit with great fondness.

My grandmother was certainly one of life’s optimists. And so am I. That’s the reason last yr we launched The Earthshot Prize with the ambition to create a very global platform to encourage hope and urgent optimism as we glance to avoid wasting the long run of our planet.

To the people of Boston, thanks. I’m so grateful to you for allowing us to host the second yr of The Earthshot Prize in your great city. Catherine and I can’t wait to satisfy a lot of you in the times ahead.
