"It is so wonderful to be back at the reopened Natural History Museum, where we can all enjoy its treasures once again," Kate said. "I'm here because tomorrow night I'm announcing the 56th Wildlife Photographer of the Year."
"I've been lucky enough to have a quick preview and I can say it's truly spectacular. I can't wait for you all to see it," she added.
The Natural History Museum's Wildlife Photographer of the Year ceremony is a special one, marking the world's longest-running and most prestigious wildlife photography competition. The ceremony also encourages millions of people around the world to rethink their relationship with nature and become advocates for the planet.
Fittingly, the announcement comes just days after husband Prince William launched his Earthshot Prize—a global prize for the environment, designed to incentivise change and help to repair our planet over the next ten years, as well as an additional TED Talk on the urgent need to tackle the environmental catastrophes around the world.
