Prince William is set to meet with co-founder of Microsoft, Bill Gates, as part of his latest visit to the US for the Earthshot Prize Summit in New York.

Speaking on Breakfast with Eamonn and Isabel, GB News' Royal Reporter Cameron Walker revealed details of the Prince of Wales' second visit to America within a year.

Cameron said: "The highlight is the Earthshot Prize Innovation Summit happening on Tuesday, where the 15 finalists of this year's Earthshot Prize will be unveiled. The different categories are Protect and Restore Nature, Clean Our Air, Revive Our Oceans, Build A Waste Free World, and Fix Our Climates. And these 15 finalists are going to unveil and showcase their solutions to repair our planet over the next decades.

"The Earthshot Prize is a prize that Prince William founded a few years ago. There's also expected to be some very high profile guest speakers, including Bill Gates, Michael R Bloomberg, who sponsors the event and also former Prime Minister of New Zealand Jacinda Ardern.”

Walker continued: "Prince William is, as I said, dubbed the global statesman, very famous on the world stage. He is expected to take part in a number of diplomatic meetings here in New York. He will be meeting the United Nations Secretary General, António Guterres, and he's also expected to meet other world leaders.

"Later on today the Prince of Wales is expected to visit a local organisation helping to restore the New York Harbour and bring life back into New York Harbour with some conservation work. It's an organisation that involves young people, in particular the next generation, to show them and educate them about how to look after nature in New York."
