At the Earthshot Prize Awards in 2022, Princess Kate looked stunning.
Kate Middleton wore a green Solace London dress that she borrowed from Hurr to the second annual Earthshot Prize in Boston, which was founded by Prince William and Sir David Attenborough to give five prizes yearly to concepts, individuals, and initiatives focused at addressing global warming.
The monarch was dressed in a stunning off-the-shoulder mint green gown. She chose an emerald and diamond choker necklace and coordinating earrings to complement the tone. Kate’s choice of attire said everything. She chose to advocate for a more sustainable—and less expensive—method of dressing rather than buy a brand-new gown she rented the dress which she rented from the British platform HURR.
According to a recent study from the US rental marketplace Rent The Runway, since 2010, the company’s business model has prevented the manufacture of 1.3 million new clothing, saving 67 million gallons of water and 44.2 million pounds of CO2 emissions. The color “green” was also a somber hue since it is frequently the one most linked with the planet and environmental issues.
Prince William, meanwhile, looked dapper in a black bowtie, white dress shirt, and black pants while wearing a blue velvet tuxedo.
Finally, the Duchess accessorized with an emerald-and-diamond choker once owned by Princess Diana. Following Diana’s wedding to Prince Charles, Queen Elizabeth gave her the priceless jewelry. The late princess famously wore the item as a headband during the duo’s 1985 Australia tour. A teal-green one-shoulder ballgown with a drop-waist and a huge bow adornment was worn with it.
Diana used the accessory once more, this time with a brilliant green column gown with wrap details and a subdued off-the-shoulder style, for a 1993 engagement at the Dorchester Hotel.
The Prince and Princess of Wales’ three-day trip, their first to the United States since 2014, came to an end with Kate’s stunning appearance for the Friday night award presentation. The princess wore a number of chic suits throughout the tour, including a sophisticated all-navy outfit for the couple’s arrival at Boston’s Logan International Airport and a wine-colored suit combined with a pink pussybow shirt for a visit to Greentown Labs in Somerville, Massachusetts.
Along with visiting Harvard’s Center on the Developing Child, which has ties to Kate’s The Royal Foundation Centre for Early Childhood, Kate also went alone. The princess donned a striking black and blue houndstooth midi dress by Emilia Wickstead along with gold Liv Thurlwell hoops and black suede heels from Gianvito Rossi.
