The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge tore up the royal rulebook on Sunday as they re-wore outfits for the inaugural Earthshot Prize in London. The couple stunned on the green carpet for the ceremony which awarded five prizes of £1million to fund innovative green projects.

William did his bit to help the environment by sporting a green velvet suit jacket and black turtleneck jumper, which he previously wore in 2019.

Kate displayed her sustainable fashion credentials by opting for a lilac Alexander McQueen dress – an outfit she put on for a BAFTA event back in 2011.

Body language expert Darren Stanton pointed out the couple may have inadvertently broken royal protocols.

Writing in the Mirror, he said: “Prince William and Kate Middleton have once again shown to the world they are comfortable now with breaking royal protocol, this time by dressing in old clothes to set the theme for the Earthshot Prize awards ceremony.”

Mr Stanton described the outfit worn by Prince William as a “power move”.

He added: “It was a very brave look.”

William, 39, founded the Earthshot Prize and enlisted the help of the stars including singer Ed Sheeran, footballer Mo Salah and actress Emma Thompson.

The Duchess of Cambridge, 39, presented the winning award in the Protect and restore nature category to the Government of Costa Rica and gave an empowering speech.

Mr Stanton said the couple’s “approach to their public appearances and interviews completely refreshing”.

He added: “Their willingness and commitment to keep the Royal Family relevant and relatable.”

The expert added the latest project provides a glimmer into what to expect when Prince William, who is second-in-line to the throne, becomes King.

Mr Stanton added: “This is just the start of a new era for the Royals with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge leading the line for future family members in the public eye.

“The heir to the throne will be keen to put a legacy in place for when he becomes king, and through his and the Duchess’ actions in this period, it will lay the foundations for his reign in decades to come.”

The Earthshot Prize takes its inspiration from the Apollo moon landings, nicknamed Moonshot, which helped advance mankind’s technological achievements.

It featured five categories, or Earthshots, they include to Protect and restore nature, Clean our air, Revive our oceans, Build a waste-free world and Fix our climate.

Every year, from 2021 until the end of the decade, winners of the five Earthshots will each receive £1million to develop their projects.

William said: “I want to say something to the young watching tonight.

“For too long, we haven’t done enough to protect the planet for your future, the Earthshot is for you.

“In the next 10 years, we are going to act. We are going to find the solutions to repair our planet.

“Please keep learning, keep demanding change, and don’t give up hope. We will rise to these challenges.”
