Why Kate And William's Latest Appearance Has Twitter Singing Their Praises

Prince William and Kate Middleton made a huge splash at the first-ever Earthshot Prize ceremony on Sunday. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge created the prize as a way to honor global and environmental change in hopes of helping to repair the planet over the next decade, according to the official website. The inaugural event was held in London over the weekend, but William confirmed that the prize ceremony would be moving to the United States in 2022, which has fans buzzing about the Cambridges taking a possible trip to the states next fall, per People.

In addition to the great work that William and Kate are doing with the Earthshot prize, fans also couldn't help but notice how amazing the couple looked at the event (via Marie Claire). William wore a black turtleneck shirt and matching slacks with a green velvet blazer over top. For her part, Kate stunned in a very familiar gown. The Duchess rocked a beautiful lavender pleated gown by Alexander McQueen, the same dress that caught the eyes of fans when she wore it to the 2011 BAFTA awards.

The night seemed to be a huge win for William and Kate, who not only brought awareness to global and environmental issues but also won over many fans in the process.
