Princess of Wales Kate Middleton will not join her husband Prince William for the annual Earthshot Prize Awards in Singapore, Kensington Palace has confirmed.
The Courier Mail reported that the palace has confirmed details of Prince William’s upcoming trip without Kate following weeks of speculation that the future queen will not join him.
It will be the first time Kate Middleton will not be present for the ceremony, which is in its third year.
Prince William’s spokesman confirmed, “The prince is very much looking forward to being in Singapore.
“The prince wants to really seize the opportunity of being in Southeast Asia to build more momentum around the Earthshot winners and finalists and to put their solutions to some of the biggest environmental challenges we face firmly on the global map.”
As per details shared by the Independent UK, during his four-day trip to Singapore, the future king will meet with local groups to learn how they are working to protect and restore the planet.
He will also attend the United for Wildlife global summit.
The awards ceremony will take place on Tuesday, November 7.
Earlier this month, Kate Middleton had disclosed the real reason why she will skip Prince William’s Earthshot Prize awards in Singapore.
Kate disclosed that she has been assisting her elder son Prince George with Maths revision ahead of his exams.
Kate Middleton said, “I’ve been helping George prepare for his exams coming up, so I know how hard maths can be.”
