Boston is bracing for a British invasion. This invasion is a welcome one, as Prince William and Princess Kate touch down in Boston for a royal visit this week. Starting Wednesday, the heir to the throne and his bride will be visiting various Boston area companies and dignitaries. It’s all to honor and celebrate their vision for a greener tomorrow, with their project “Earthshot.” According to Boston 25 News, Prince William founded the Earthshot Prize two years ago.
