Prince William: ‘Repair this planet, not find the next’

The Duke of Cambridge has suggested entrepreneurs should focus their resources on solving problems on Earth rather than engaging in a new space race.

He was speaking to the BBC’s Newscast podcast, before the first ceremony for his new Earthshot Prize this weekend. Five innovative ideas will each be awarded £1m to help the planet.

The full Prince William interview airs on 14 October 2021. UK viewers can watch on BBC One at 23:35 BST, or on iPlayer afterwards, or on the BBC News Channel. You can also listen on BBC Sounds and BBC 5 Live.
