Boston mayor welcomes Earthshot

The current titles of Prince and Princess of Wales last visited America in 2014 when they attended events in New York and Washington, DC.
Arriving in Boston on Wednesday, the couple will attend the Prince’s Earthshot Environmental Award ceremony and visit the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and local environmental and social advocacy projects.
The media spotlight on the trip has grown even stronger as Buckingham Palace became embroiled in a racism scandal that led to the resignation of Prince of Wales godmother Lady Susan Hussey. A spokesperson for the prince gave her a sharp rebuke regarding her comments to black advocates for domestic violence survivors.
