Royal fans were sent into a frenzy this morning after Kate and Prince William’s official Twitter account shared a picture taken during the Duke of Cambridge’s upcoming interview. In the snap, the Duke smiles as he holds a card showing the logo of BBC Newscast and looks at broadcaster Adam Fleming.
The 30-minute-long one-to-one conversation between the future King and the broadcaster was recorded at Kensington Palace.
It focuses on Prince William’s environmental award the Earthshot Prize and sees the Duke watching and commenting clips from the BBC five-part series introducing to the world the first finalists of the initiatives.
This special BBC Newscast episode will be broadcasted on Thursday at 11.35pm – in the run-up to the first-ever Earthshot Prize award ceremony.
The Prize’s first ceremony, during which five winners will be awarded £1million each to bring to life their project fighting five pressing environmental issues, will take place from 8pm on Sunday at London’s Alexandra Palace.
Following Kensington Palace’s sneak peek into the upcoming programme, royal fans expressed their excitement on Twitter.
Royal watcher Kayla Adams tweeted: “Yess! Can’t wait to listen on Thursday”.
A fan account of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge called Cambridge Court wrote: “Looks like a fun interview. Can’t wait to see.”
A third Twitter user, named Umaimah Majaz, said: “Excitedly looking forward”.
Another, called Alex Wilmington, wrote: “It’s great to see William with such a nice relaxed genuine smile on his face!!!!!”
Prince William launched his legacy-making award in October last year.
The Prize will last for a decade and will award every year five individuals, governments or communities who can come up with workable solutions to increasingly worrying environmental problems – including air and water pollution and climate change.
