BOSTON, Dec 2 (Reuters) –

Prince William greeted U.S. President Joe Biden at the
waterfront in Boston on Friday, part of a multi-day visit by
British royals to the United States to highlight efforts to
address global environmental challenges.

The trip that began on Wednesday was the first overseas
excursion for William and his wife, Kate, since the death of
Queen Elizabeth in September and with their new titles of Prince
and Princess of Wales.

On Friday afternoon, William met Biden outdoors in the cold
along Boston’s waterfront. The two took a brief stroll before a
private meeting at the John F. Kennedy Library.

The pair were expected to discuss “shared climate goals” and
“prioritization of mental health issues” among other issues,
White House spokeswoman Karine Jean-Pierre told reporters before
the meeting.

Later on Friday, William will award the Earthshot Prize
established by him that recognizes people working to address
climate change.

“We want to demonstrate what we can all do to help put the
world on a path towards a stable climate, where communities,
nature and oceans thrive in harmony,” William said in an opinion
piece published in The Huffington Post.

The royal couple last visited the United States in November
2014, when they were guests of then-President Barack Obama at
the White House.
