The Princess of Wales has remained in the UK while her husband has been in New York

Princess Kate has sparked disappointment from many royals over her decision to snub Prince William's upcoming trip to Singapore.

Prince William is currently in New York to promote his Earthshot Prize Awards, which will take place in Singapore later this year.

Although it was understandable that Kate remained in the UK to complete her royal duties during William's stateside trip, many fans assumed she would make the trip to Singapore in November.

However, the Princess has no intention of joining her husband for the ceremony, which will take place on November 7 according to the Telegraph.

Kate famously dazzled in an emerald green dress from Solace London for last year's ceremony in Boston, which she rented from HURR for £74.

Many royal fans were critical of the fact that the Prince of Wales will be the sole royal representative this year, and took to social media to express their views.

One royal fan sarcastically tweeted: “Hilarious that Prince William is attending the Earthshot Awards without his adoring wife Princess Catherine.”

Another fan joked: “Maybe they couldn’t justify two flights to Singapore.”

Others pointed out the differences between the Waleses and the Sussexes, with Meghan Markle joining her husband Prince Harry for the Invictus Games in Germany.

A Sussex supporter posted on X: “Invictus would not be the success it is were it not for Harry and Meghan, and everyone there knows it.

"William and Kate would never have made the same impact.”

Fans of the Prince and Princess of Wales were very disappointed at the news, with one commenting: "So sad. We want to see Princess Catherine."

As the news has not been confirmed by Kensington Palace, many fans are hoping Kate will make an appearance in November.

One royal watcher said: "Hopefully this is not true. From what we have seen so far it is basically confirmed (not officially by the palace) that Catherine will be there."
