Prince William and Kate Middleton are finally heading to the US, almost two years since Prince Harry and Meghan Markle moved Stateside.

The Duke of Cambridge announced the news in an interview with People, noting that his environmental initiative, The Earthshot Prize, will host its second ceremony in the US next year. The Cambridges celebrated the global prize for the environment last Sunday in London.

‘This is just the start,’ he told the publication following the celebrations. ‘I'm thrilled that in 2022, The Earthshot Prize will be heading to the United States, where we will continue to spread this vital message of urgency, optimism and action.

‘The urgency of the situation can't be overstated. But through The Earthshot Prize, I want to show people across the world why there is reason to be hopeful.’

The royal trip will mark the couple’s first in over seven years since their trip to New York in 2014.

It’s unknown at this stage whether the couple will take their three children – Princes George and Louis and Princess Charlotte – on the trip, but we have a feeling the family might want to combine their work obligations with a visit to see their relatives – the Sussexes – in California.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex moved to the US last year after they official stepped down as senior members of the royal family. The pair and their son Archie later settled in Montecito, before they welcomed their daughter Lilibet earlier this summer.

It’s believed no member of the royal family has been able to meet Lilibet – otherwise known as Lili – since her birth as a result of travel restrictions during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The last time Prince Harry visited the UK was in April this year following the death of his grandfather, Prince Philip.
