Kate and William are poised to make a triumphant trip to the United States and win over the hearts over Americans during their three-day trip to Boston, a royal expert said. The Prince and Princess of Wales are reportedly “hugely excited” about the trip and will be showing their support for finding ways to tackle climate change at the second annual Earthshot Prize awards. 

Katie Nicholl, author and royal editor at Vanity Fair told GB News that the Queen’s death has increased support for the Prince and Princess of Wales after the Oprah interview had Meghan and Harry in the spotlight.

She said: “There was a bit of a tide turning against William and Kate. We’d never seen that before. 

“I think it’s going to be very interesting to see the reception. 

“I think this is going to be a massive charm offensive. I suspect that America will fall head over heels in love with William and Kate, the new Prince and Princess of Wales.”

Having written for an American audience in Vanity Fair, Katie Nicholl forecasts a “huge success” for the two royals on the other side the pond.

“And I think when you think about the last tour they did of the Caribbeans, which wasn’t the given success we expected to be, and this isn’t quite a royal tour. 

“It’s still an important visit. I think you’re going to see things done quite differently on this. I think it’s going to look fresh and modern. 

“And I think they’re going to engage in a way that you haven’t seen them do.”

The Prince and Princess of Wales will embark on a three-day trip to the US later this week to carry a series of engagement in Boston, culminating in a star-studded Earthshot Prize ceremony they hope will push the awards into the global spotlight.

It is their first visit to the US since the Sussexes left the Firm for North America and since their bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey. 

It will also happen before a major publicity blitz from Harry and Meghan who are expected to release their Netflix docu-series within a fortnight, followed closely by Prince Harry’s tell-all memoir, Spare, published on January 10. 

Kate and William hope they will be shift the attention away from the Sussexes to whip up more of an international buzz around the Earthshot Prize.

Before attending the ceremony, the royals have a packed schedules of commitments and visits, including a welcome in Boston at a City Hall ceremony with Boston Mayor on Wednesday and a tour of a non-profit organization and a start-up incubator in the Boston area on Thursday.

The Earthshot Prize Awards Ceremony will be held at MGM Music Hall at Fenway, close to the city’s famed Fenway Park on Friday. 

The ceremony will award five recipients with about $1.2 million grants to help build their solutions to repair the planet by 2030.

Kate and William are reportedly “hugely excited” about the trip and see it as a key moment in forging their own paths as working royals in what their staffers have described as their “Super Bowl moment”.
