In a stark contrast to his usual modest outfit choices, Prince William wowed with an ultra-modern look overnight, attending his Earthshot Prize Awards in London.  He was accompanied by Kate Middleton who is being lauded for wearing a recycled dress previously worn by the Duchess in 2011.

Prince William strolled the green carpet ahead of the event alongside the Duchess of Cambridge and in keeping with the green message of the evening William wore a green velvet jacket paired with a turtleneck and black pants and accessorised with an emerald pocket square.

The Prince was accompanied by wife Kate Middleton who opted for a recycled Alexander McQueen gown she had worn before. The lilac floor length gown was first spotted at the 2011 BAFTA awards Prince William and Kate attended as part of their post wedding royal tour.

The Duchess made some minor changes to the gown with a white sparkly belt this time around instead of the original white one she opted for previously.

The royals were joined in attendance by celebrities such as Emma Thompson, Emma Watson, David Oyelowo, and Mo Salah and the event hosted performances by Ed Sheeran and Coldplay.

Thompson strolled the green carpet in a blue blazer with matching trouser and white trainers, accessorised by a silver broach.

Hours before the event, Prince Charles relayed how proud he was of his son in a post to the House of Clarence instagram.

“I am very proud of my son, William, for his growing commitment to the environment and the bold ambition of the Earthshot Prize.”
