Celebrities from around the globe walked the “green carpet” in Boston Friday evening, guests of Prince William and Princess Catherine as the royal couple hosted the second annual Earthshot Prize award ceremony.

Arrivals began in the early evening outside MGM Music Hall at Fenway, where Prince William will bestow five £1 million prizes to environmental entrepreneurs and innovators for their “groundbreaking solutions to repair and regenerate the planet.”

The winners were chosen by the Earthshot Prize award committee, a diverse group of influential global figures that includes NBA Hall of Famer Yao Ming, soccer star Dani Alves, singer Shakira, naturalist and “Planet Earth” narrator Sir David Attenborough, and actress Cate Blanchett, among others.
