Prince William has met with President Joe Biden in a significant moment for the Prince of Wales as his important trip to the US comes to a close.

The 40 year old Royal, who is in America with wife Kate Middleton, also 40, arrived at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum in Boston, Massachusetts for a tour of the works and artefacts before the American President arrived to greet him.

The Prince of Wales appeared to be sharing a laugh with the president as they shook hands and chatted outside the museum, which overlooked the dock.

Wearing a smart navy suit and blue patterned tie for the occasion, William looked dapper as he greeted Biden in a black coat and striped red and blue tie.

Sharing a snap of his visit on the official Prince and Princess of Wales Instagram, the future King told how former President JFK's Moonshot has been a ginormous inspiration for those hoping to win the Earthshot Prize ahead of the awards ceremony.


"JFK’s Moonshot continues to inspire the work of the @EarthshotPrize, and so on our final day here in Boston it’s been a pleasure to visit @jfklibrary to learn more about his life and legacy and spend time with his daughter, Ambassador Caroline Kennedy," the caption read. "And now to the Awards…!"

Prince William set up the awards in 2021, and it has now become an annual event.


The Earthshot Prize is awarded to five winners each year for their contributions to environmentalism, and is planned to run every year until 2030.

Winners receive a £1 million grant to continue their work in the environmental fields.

The Prince and Princess, who have already done a rehearsal for the ceremony, will attend the awards at MGM Music Hall.

The Royal couple will join activists and policy makers as an announcement reveals the 15 finalists.

There will be performances for the guests and Prince William is expected to give a rousing speech on stage.

The show will then come to an end with five people receiving the winning grant.

The special televised show will be broadcast on BBC One on Sunday 4 December.

It comes as Kate put on a beaming smile as she showed off her confidence during the third and final day of her and William's trip to the US.

The Princess of Wales spoke with staff and important figures at the Center on the Developing Child at Harvard University over their work on the early years and impact of childhood on later life.

Mum-of-three Kate takes the subject of early childhood incredibly importantly, and has tirelessly campaigned for better practices and research into the effects on later life at home in the UK.

The Princess of Wales was also undertaking her first solo engagement of the trip.

Wearing a houndstooth dress and powder blue clutch bag for the engagement, the glowing Royal was quickly sharing laughs with Harvard employees.

It has been a rocky trip for the couple, as not only had Buckingham Palace been embroiled in a race row with the Queen's former lady-in-waiting Sarah Hussey, but Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's new documentary series released a trailer during their trip too.
