In a highly anticipated visit, Prince William, the Duke of Cambridge, is gearing up to attend the second Earthshot Prize Innovation Summit at the UN General Assembly in New York City on September 19. This marks his first solo trip to the United States as the Prince of Wales, and it promises to be a whirlwind two-day affair filled with engagements centered on vital global issues and mental health advocacy.

The Prince, whose popularity has been on the rise in the US, is expected to make a lasting impression as he takes on a crucial role in advocating for pressing global concerns. Although speculation had swirled regarding a possible reunion with his younger brother, Prince Harry, who recently concluded his European tour after participating in the Invictus Games in Germany, sources close to the royal family have indicated that such a meeting is unlikely.

Prince William's busy schedule leaves little room for personal engagements, including spending time with his nieces and nephews, Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet, and there is no indication of any interaction with Prince Harry's wife, Meghan Markle.

Prince William's Generous Invitation

Prince William's decision to allow the Suss*xes to take the spotlight during their visit is a testament to his commitment to the causes he champions. He has extended an invitation to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to attend an event where he plans to expand the international reach of his Earthshot innovation awards.

During his visit, the future king will engage in meaningful discussions on mental health, particularly with New York's firefighters, demonstrating his dedication to addressing this critical issue. This trip to the United States coincides with a period when Prince William's popularity is reportedly soaring among Americans, as reflected in recent Gallup polls.

He finds himself ahead of not only American President Joe Biden but also Ukraine's President Volodymyr Zelensky in terms of public favor. While Prince William's popularity continues to rise, Princess Kate Middleton remains the most beloved British royal in the US, according to a recent YouGov survey.

Both Prince William and his brother, Prince Harry, closely trail behind her in popularity, while Meghan Markle lags significantly behind in the American public's favor. Prince William's scheduled meetings with UN Secretary-General António Guterres and other global leaders underscore his growing importance as a world statesman, transcending his role as British royalty.

As he advocates for urgent global causes at the UN General Assembly, Prince William's visit to the United States promises to leave a lasting impact on both sides of the Atlantic.
