    When the Duke of Cambridge goes to New York later this month, it will be a new high watermark in all his years of public service. At the United Nations General Assembly, Prince William will have the world's attention as he meets the city's former mayor and billionaire philanthropist Mike Bloomberg to promote Earthshot, his annual awards for innovative solutions tackling climate change.

    Step aside, Paul Revere. This British invasion comes with its own press release.  Prince William and his wife Prince Kate Middleton will hold the awards ceremony for the Earthshot Prize in Boston later this year.  The Earthshot Prize goes to the people and projects who are working to "repair and regenerate the planet," a press release about the awards said.  In December, the Royals will choose five winners out of 15 finalists to win a £1 million prize (about $1.2 million) to help fund their initiatives.  The awards chose Boston because of Mayor Michelle Wu's focus on fighting global warming and emphasizing green technology, the release said. The group noted her ordinances to cut back Boston's use of fossil fuels and tobacco and her attempts to dismantle the private prison industry.  “We are honored and excited that Boston has been selected to host the 2022 Earthshot Awards," said Mayor Wu in the press release. "This is an opportunity to shine a global spotlight on our efforts to combat climate change and demonstrate that, together, we can meet the urgency this moment...
