The Prince and Princess of Wales dazzled as they spent the last night of their three-day tour at the Earthshot Prize ceremony on Friday night. As their visit comes to an end, US media have praised the couple dubbing the visit a success in the country.

The couple, alongside A-list stars and climate activists, were spotted at the prestigious event last night.

Kate looked stunning in a floor-length vibrant green dress by Solace London, while William looked smart in a blue velvet tux. 

The Princess paired her elegant dress with an emerald choker famously worn by her mother-in-law, Princess Diana, and earrings from her private collection. 

Last night’s ceremony also featured performances by Annie Lennox, Billie Eilish and Chloe x Halle. 

The Earthshot Prize, launched by William in 2020, saw five winners scoop up £975,609 ($1.2million) each for their impact to environmental causes.

Following the success of their whirlwind visit, US media has celebrated the royal couple. 

The Boston Herald said Kate “dazzled” at the award ceremony, while People Magazine said she stunned the crowds in her glamourous outfit. 

Similarly, The New York Post described the ceremony as a “home run” for the future King and Queen. 

But the couple didn’t have an entirely warm welcome from all the American public. 

During a Celtics basketball game on Wednesday in Boston, Kate and William received boos from some members of the crowd. 

They arrived about 15 minutes before tip-off and took their seats next to Massachusetts Governor-elect Maura Healey and Boston Mayor Michelle Wu. 

When the camera panned to them and the royal’s faces could be seen on the big screen, some spectators booed and chanted “USA”. 

A New York Times article also reported one Bostonian woman’s reaction to the couple, who said she “didn’t care” about their US visit. 

Another man was quoted as saying: “I said to my wife this morning, I put my pants on the same way he does – why is he so special?”

However, despite some negative chatter, Kate was heard saying the people of Boston had been “so friendly” during her visit to Harvard University’s child development centre.
