Prince William is contributing to a book of his own, and no, it’s not a tell-all memoir.
Just a few days after his younger brother, Prince Harry, announced that he’s writing a personal book about his life, we learned that the Duke of Cambridge is set to write an exclusive introduction for the book Earthshot: How to Save Our Planet, which coincides with William’s prestigious environmental award program.
If you’re unfamiliar, the duke’s Earthshot Prize offers $65 million to support “solutions to the world’s greatest environmental problems” over the next decade. The initiative (which we first learned about in 2020) is the result of two years of work by the royal and The Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. The mission is to reward those who are making a difference in climate change.
Scheduled to publish sometime this fall, the new book will bring attention to current environmental challenges and propose solutions to help face them. In addition to William’s forward, the book is co-written by former World Wide Fund for Nature executive director, Colin Butfield, and Jonnie Hughes.
“The Earthshot concept is simple: we have ten years to turn the tide, fifty ingenious ideas, and one goal—to save our planet. What we need is action and optimism. Our book reaches from the coral reefs of Mexico, via palm oil plantations in Borneo and sheep farms in Australia, to the forests of Kenya. It's an explanation of how we've got to this point, and how—by acting collectively—we can fix it,” the co-authors said in a statement per Harper’s Bazaar.
Two book announcements in one week? Those royals sure are keeping busy.
