The wildlife campaigner and father-of-three has set up The Earthshot Prize after consulting members of his family as well as veteran broadcaster and naturalist Sir David Attenborough in an attempt to provide solutions “to the world’s greatest problems”.

Kensington Palace said multimillion-pound prizes will be awarded annually to five winners around the world, in each year of the 2020s.
