The work continues. Prince William spoke out about a cause close to his heart two days after his grandmother Queen Elizabeth II’s state funeral.“Although it is the saddest of circumstances that means I cannot join you in person today, I am pleased to join you in video form as you gather in New York for the Earthshot Prize Innovation Summit,” the Prince of Wales, 40, said via video on Wednesday, September 21, addressing the summit in New York City.He continued: “During this time of grief, I take great comfort in your continued enthusiasm, optimism and commitment to the Earthshot Prize and what we are trying to achieve.”The Duke of Cambridge emphasized that “protecting the environment was a cause close to my grandmother’s heart” and said that Her Majesty “would have been delighted to hear about this event and the support you’re all giving our Earthshot finalists, the next generation of environmental pioneers.”William was initially scheduled to deliver his address in person but canceled his appearance following the queen’s death at the age of 96 on September 8.

As he and the royal family mourned, the duke shared a statement via his joint Instagram account with Princess Kate honoring the late British monarch.“On Thursday, the world lost an extraordinary leader, whose commitment to the country, the Realms and the Commonwealth was absolute,” the statement read. “So much will be said in the days ahead about the meaning of her historic reign.”Her Majesty’s memorial service on Monday, September 19, took place at Westminster Abbey.

Afterward, her remains were taken to Wellington Arch and then to her final resting place — St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle.
