Boston Mayor Welcomes Earthshot to City
Prince William and his wife Kate have arrived in Boston for their first overseas trip since the death of Queen Elizabeth II and the accession of King Charles III to the throne.
The Prince and Princess of Wales, as they are now titled, last visited America in 2014 when they attended events in New York and Washington, DC.
Disembarking in Boston on Wednesday, the couple will attend an Earthshot Environmental Award Ceremony the Prince established and tour the John F Kennedy Presidential Library as well as local environmental and social advocacy projects.
The media spotlight on the trip is heightened as Buckingham Palace is embroiled in a racism scandal which has led to the resignation of the Prince of Wales’ godmother, Lady Susan Hussey. A spokesperson for the prince strongly criticized him for the comments of a black advocate for victims of domestic violence.
The couple sat next to Massachusetts Governor-elect Maura Healey to watch the Boston Celtics take on the Miami Heat on Wednesday night.
The royal couple are expected to be greeted by President Joe Biden during their visit to Boston on Friday but are not expected to meet Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle who will be in New York a few days later.
