Prince William is ready to win the hearts of Americans during his trip to… Two days in New York to support urgent global issues, like climate change, and talking about mental health with firefighters in the Big Apple. The Prince of Wales’s first official visit to the United States comes at a time when his popularity is rising sharply in the United States, even ahead of President Joe Biden and President of Ukraine Vodomyr Zelensky, according to a recent Gallup poll.
In New York for the second annual Earthshot Prize Innovation Summit he founded, William will meet privately with UN Secretary-General António Guterres and other global leaders, highlighting the Prince’s growing importance as a statesman and not just a member of the British royal family. Observers point out that the attractiveness of the royal family has increased in the United States, especially among young people who are more interested in environmental issues.
Prince William’s focus on green issues resonates with this demographic, noted Daisy Prince, editor of the party’s digital newsletter. As if that wasn’t enough, the visit of the heir to the UK throne will be made even more glamorous by the presence of two-time Oscar winner Cate Blanchett, a staunch supporter of the Earthshot Prize.
