Arriving in the U.S. will put the couple on the same continent as Prince William’s brother 哈里王子 and sister-in-law 梅根马克尔, although they’re not expected to spend time together.

But an aide says highlighting and championing the Earthshot Prize is 威廉王子 and Kate’s main focus, “and we won’t be distracted by other things.

This is also 威廉王子 and Kate’s first trip abroad as Prince and Princess of Wales, and with that comes inevitable parallels with William’s parents — most especially 戴安娜王妃, who was so popular in the U.S.

They realize the history and the warm affection people feel towards those roles, but they are keen to pave their own path and create their own history,” 消息来源说.
