Princess of Wales, born Catherine Elizabeth Middleton, married Prince William at Westminster Abbey in April 2011. As well as undertaking royal duties in support of King Charles III, both in the UK and overseas, The Princess of Wales devotes her time to supporting a number of charitable causes and organisations, several of which are centred around providing children with the best possible start in life.
The Environment Protecting the natural environment for future generations is one of the Prince of Wales’s key priorities. His Royal Highness has publicly supported initiatives to fund conservation, community development and environmental education programmes across Africa, and has led key programmes such as the United for Wildlife Financial and Transportation Task forces to end illegal wildlife trafficking on a global scale.
The Royal Foundation mobilises leaders, businesses and people so that together we can address society’s greatest challenges. Led by The Prince and Princess of Wales, our work is built on world-class research, long-term partnerships, and measurable, scalable impact.
The Earthshot Prize was designed to find and grow the solutions that will repair our planet this decade. We face our greatest challenge; to regenerate the place we all call home in the next ten years. We believe in the power of human ingenuity to prove to us all that the seemingly impossible is possible.
The Earthshot Prize is awarded to five winners each year for their contributions to environmentalism. It was first awarded in 2021 and is planned to run annually until 2030. Each winner receives a grant of £1 million to continue their environmental work
“The Earth is at a tipping point and we face a stark choice: either we continue as we are and irreparably damage our planet, or we remember our unique power as human beings and our continual ability to lead, innovate and problem-solve.
People can achieve great things. The next ten years present us with one of our greatest tests – a decade of action to repair the Earth.”
