Prince William is heading to the United States next week, and while he is very excited to talk about climate change and promote his Earthshot prize, he is looking to avoid the topic of his estranged brother, Prince Harry. He wants to keep the focus on his business and not on the royal family feud.
That’s a fair enough request, but it’s going to be hard for him to avoid the Prince Harry questions, especially ones that involve stories from his brother’s memoir, Spare. It’s a highly coveted interview to get, but most U.S. media outlets are only going to get a canned soundbite about the environment — it won’t be the actual story they are chasing. There might be one way around the Harry topic, though, but it’s going to involve the Prince of Wales loosening up a bit in order to avoid those “inevitable questions.”
“The eco stuff is huge with young Americans — they really care about it, so the fact he’s spearheading that is great. But I hope he does something cool and fun,” Daisy Prince, editor of the Digital Party newsletter told The Times. “Can we encourage him to go to a Yankees game and eat a hot dog, connect with normal New Yorkers, experience the less stuffy parts of the city? If he wants to win New York, he needs to play with us a little bit.”
Let’s not Prince William and Kate Middleton’s last visit to Boston in 2022 was interrupted by the release of the Harry & Meghan trailer and Queen Elizabeth’s former lady-in-waiting’s insensitive race remarks at a Buckingham Palace reception. The Prince of Wales would prefer a less sensational visit that is more focused on his climate-control mission, however, the U.S. media outlets likely have a very different agenda.
