Kate Middleton Steps in Front of the Camera as She Reopens Her Favorite Museum in Glam Appearance
Kensington Palace Kate Middleton
Kate Middleton has some wildlife news of her own! Just days after Prince William launched his new environmental award, Kate announced that she would attend a special award ceremony on Tuesday.
In a new video, Kate announces the fact that London's Natural History Museum - home to dinosaur skeletons and graphic representations of the creatures and geography of the world - will be open to business after it closes earlier this year amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
Kate, who loves taking her children Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis to the museum not far from her home at Kensington Palace, will attend a virtual awards ceremony for Wildlife Photographer of the Year.

Kate, the museum's patron, says the results of the annual competition are "really spectacular". She films a speech in the famous Hintze Hall and says: "It is wonderful to be back in the reopened Natural History Museum, where we can enjoy all of its treasures again."
"I'm here to announce the 56th Wildlife Photographer of the Year tomorrow night. I was lucky enough to have a quick preview and I can say it's really spectacular. I can't wait to see you see it all. "
Each year the museum hopes the competition will inspire people around the world to reflect on the natural world and "become advocates for the planet," says Kate's Kensington Palace office.

During the awards ceremony on Tuesday evening, 38-year-old Kate will praise this year's contestants in the longest-running and most prestigious annual wildlife photography competition in the world.
"The skill and creativity of this year's pictures offer a moving and fascinating insight into the beauty and vulnerability of life on our planet," she says.

"Many thanks to everyone who showed us the magic of nature and reminded us that caring for our environment and its valuable biodiversity has never been so important."
It's poignant that the awards ceremony took place this week - just days after her husband William launched his Earthshot Prize and in his first TED talk spoke about the urgent need to address environmental disasters around the world.
This year's winning pictures were selected from over 49,000 entries from around the world by a panel of international experts and announced on Tuesday at 3 p.m. ET and will be on display at the Natural History Museum on October 16 before touring the UK and internationally.
