Open Post – Earth Shot Prize Awards Ceremony

The first ever Earthshot Prize Awards Ceremony is being held tonight at London’s Alexandra Palace. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are expected to attend and walk the green carpet.

Coldplay, Ed Sheeran, Yemi Alade, KSI, and Shawn Mendes will perform at the ceremony. Emma Thompson, Emma Watson, David Oyelowo, and Mo Salah are scheduled to hand out the awards. The event is to be hosted by Clara Amfo and Dermot O’Leary, and Sir David Attenborough will also speak.

The full program can be found here.

We’ll pop in with photos as they become available, but in the meantime please share your comments and photos below.


The Duchess of Cambridge repeated her pale lilac McQueen gown, last worn in Los Angeles (at least I think that was the last time) at the BAFTAs in 2011. William chose his new favorite green velvet jacket, paired with a black turtleneck and black pants. (Who IS this person, and what has he done with the real Wills?)
