The Royals were joined by Mayor Michelle Wu (2nd from right) and Reverend Mariama White-Hammond (far right), Boston’s head of environment, energy and open space.

A news release from Kensington Palace reported that the prince and princess were in attendance “to learn about the important climate challenges facing the city itself” and “to see the changing face of Boston’s coastline as the city grapples with sea level rise.”

More about engagement from 7News.

The group toured the area despite biting cold and strong winds and ventured across the ghats to the park’s pavilion and beyond. The royals heard officials describe Boston’s history and what is being done to ensure parks, Boston Harbor and the city itself are preserved in the face of climate change.

You welcomed both Mayor Wu and Reverend White-Hammond to City Hall yesterday. Also part of today’s group, Lisa Wieland, CEO of the Massachusetts Port Authority (MasPort), is seen in a gray coat.

Members of the royal family met representatives of several important environmental organizations.

Groups represented included the following:

  • Boston Harbor Now is a member of the host committee for this year’s EarthShot Awards. The group notes on its site that it is “working to reestablish Boston as one of the world’s truly great coastal cities. Everything we do is in partnership with public agencies, communities, and private and nonprofit partners.”
  • The Stone Living Lab is described on its site as “…transformative research and outreach to adapt coastal regions to climate change while improving the natural and built environment.”
  • The reservation’s trustees are “…here to protect and share Massachusetts places that people love for their exceptional natural, historic, and ecological value. For their trails, their history, their gardens, their beaches,” according to the group’s website.
  • The Harborkeepers is a waterfront advocacy group “…working to foster coastal community resilience and environmental stewardship in East Boston.”

people The story reported that the Royals “… spoke to community members about their experiences with flooding and storm surge, as well as ongoing projects to reduce climate change risks while promoting equity among East Boston’s diverse residents.”

We return to 7 news pieces.

The discussion also included the city’s resilience projects. Speaking to 7News after the tour, Mayor Michelle Wu said the royals wanted to see how current and previous projects are making an impact.

“We talked about the innovation we’re seeing here with the parks under construction, the new green spaces that have been created and how they double as not only climate protection, but spaces for fun and community and much-needed health benefits. We will be.”

At one point on the tour, 7NEWS cameras caught the group bursting into laughter during the tour: the result of humor in the face of frigid temperatures.

“We were talking about bringing them back when some of the new parks were built and some of the infrastructure was fully installed, and everyone promised that it would be next summer,” Wu said.

If it looked like it was cold, it was: the temperature was in the upper 30s and it was windy.

As the group approaches the water, Mayor Wu adds a hat.

Now see what Kate wore.

She wore an Alexander McQueen coat. The double-breasted design features peaked lapels, long sleeves with padded shoulders and buttoned cuffs, front flap pockets, a welt pocket on the chest and a single rear vent. It’s very similar to the Alexander McQueen coat shown on Farfetch (sold out), but in a rich brown color.

With thanks Carly A Kate Middleton style, it looks like the princess was wearing American designer Gabriela Hearst underneath the coat. More specifically, the Pepe Turtleneck ($790) and the Epper Skirt ($1590).

Both pieces are made from a blend of 70% cashmere and 30% silk. The turtleneck is a fitted style in a ribbed knit. The skirt features a pointed rib, an elasticated waist (middle image) and angled ribbing at the hips.

The boots are a bespoke Gianvito Rossi pair that were first worn in a rugby match in November

I don’t know the brand of scarf or gloves. I don’t believe the gloves are one of Princess’s Cornelia James pairs but could be wrong.

The princess’s hair was partially pulled back.

Her earrings are Daniela Draper Luxury Maxi Cupid Hoops ($3100) worn for earlier engagements.
