Although Kate Middleton has been a fixture at previous editions of the Earthshot Prize, she will not be able to travel to Singapore this year, where the awards ceremony will be held on November 7.
While her absence was initially rumored, Kensington Palace has officially confirmed that the Princess of Wales will not be attending this important event and has also revealed the reasons behind this unexpected decision.
The Earthshot Prize, created by Prince William in 2020, is a way to find solutions to the planet’s most pressing environmental problems.
The awards ceremony is an important event in the British royal calendar, and Kate Middleton’s absence will undoubtedly be noticed.
Kate Middleton will not be attending the Earthshot Prize
Official sources say Kate will stay at home to support and guide her son, 10-year-old Prince George, who has exams the same week as the awards.
Her son’s education and academic development are a priority for her, and her presence and support are critical at this crucial time.
Prince George, grandson of King Charles III and second in line to the throne, is currently in the sixth form at Lambrook School in Berkshire.
As he progresses through his education, the demands and responsibilities increase and Kate wants to be there to give him all the support he needs during these important exams.
Although her absence at the Earthshot Awards is notable, Kate Middleton has always shown her support for the initiative and has attended previous ceremonies where these awards have been presented.
Despite being unable to travel to Singapore, the Princess of Wales remains committed to the cause and will continue to work on projects related to the environment and sustainability.
Her dedication is an example to many, and her absence from the awards does not diminish her support and commitment to the environment, although it does reignite rumors of an alleged marital crisis.
