Prince Charles Shares Intimate Shot with Prince William on Instagram

Prince William's Earthshot Prize Awards took place this weekend, and it's clear that his event had the full support of his family.

The Duke of Cambridge's father, Prince Charles, promoted the event on his own account that he shares with Camilla Parker Bowles. In the post, Prince Charles included a poster for the ceremony, as well as a special photo of him and his oldest son that appears to have been taken fairly recently.

In the photo, both men are smiling together and the Prince of Wales is seen resting his head on his son's shoulder.

Along with this intimate shot, Prince Charles said, “I am very proud of my son, William, for his growing commitment to the environment and the bold ambition of the Earthshot Prize.”

The Prince of Wales continued, saying, “As a world, we need to come together to inspire, reimagine and build the sustainable future we so desperately need. Over the coming decade, with future generations in mind, the Earthshot Prize, and its inspirational nominees, will help us find the innovative solutions.”

In addition to promoting his son's latest venture, Prince Charles demonstrated how their passions align, adding, “In parallel, through my Terra Carta and Sustainable Markets Initiative, we will work to mobilize the trillions of dollars required to transition the global economy onto a more sustainable trajectory. Together, with all those who join us, we have a real opportunity to deliver a brighter future for humanity while restoring harmony between Nature, People and Planet.”

We can tell that the prince wrote the caption himself, because he signed it “HRH The Prince of Wales.”

Prince William's Earthshot Prize Awards took place earlier today, where the duke crowned the figure who he thought contributed most to finding “inspiring and innovative solutions, from around the world, to the environmental challenges facing our planet.”
