Before the awards ceremony took place, the prince took to Instagram to answer some questions about the night.

"The Earthshot Prize is a global environment prize, trying to inspire positivity and solutions to tackle some of the world's biggest environmental challenges," he said. "So, the inspiration to create is going back to going around the world. I have seen some amazing places and some amazing people who are doing incredible work. I think this sort of prize needs to be highlighting those individuals, give them a profile to present their solutions and show people we can actually fix this stuff. Ultimately, I want my children's future to be better than we currently have at the moment."

"I think a prize is going to help climate change because we need the hope, we need the optimism right now. It can feel very depressing when we think about how big these problems are, but I think right now what is missing is the prize — it's this sense of hope, it's this sense of optimism that we can actually fix stuff," he continued.

"On our little notes they said 'Please do not buy anything new for this.' Can you imagine? The relief! So I got my dame suit that I wore when I went to the palace," she said of her outfit while presenting an award.
