The Royal Foundation website used to feature small photos of the pair and was filled with streams of text about the couple. But now it features a sleek new design with their titles “Duke and Duchess of Cambridge” centre stage across the main page underneath the “Royal Foundation” header. There are also updated pictures of Kate and William from their latest engagements this year stretched across the whole webpage.

And visitors can click on different tabs that lead to the couple’s Instagram and Twitter pages.

Their website’s new look comes after William announced his new £50 million Earthshot Prize.

The future king’s global environmental competition aims to encourage the public, scientists and businesses to come up with ideas, solutions and technologies to “repair our planet” within 10 years.

The judging panel boasts an impressive lineup of actress Cate Blanchett, singer Shakira, Queen Rania of Jordan and Sir David Attenborough who will pick the five winning ideas.

William told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme: “These are grave times for the environment.

“But I do believe with human ingenuity, and I do believe with younger generations speaking up like they are now, that they will not stand for this lack of hope, with this lack of idea that we can’t fix some of these big solutions.”

He added he feels the world is at a “tipping point” and that he wants to “hand the planet in a better state than we found it” to his children and grandchildren.

William admitted the project was part of his preparation for when he takes on the role of king.

The project features five categories or Earthshots, which the organisers say that could improve life for everybody if they are achieved by 2030.

Every year from 2021 until the end of the decade, winners in the five Earthshots will each receive £1 million.

Mr Attenborough, who has supported the project from the beginning, revealed he wanted to get involved because the “writing is on the wall”.

He said: “Suddenly we actually see the writing on the wall. Suddenly we can actually see coral reef dying. Suddenly we can see that forests are disappearing.

“Suddenly there are real dangers that there may be a tipping point in which the ice caps of the North Pole begin to melt – which it’s doing already.

“People can see it’s happening and it’s a matter of great urgency now.”

The Duke added he is “struggling to keep the optimism levels going” with his children, but finds Mr Attenborough’s documentaries helpful.

He said: “It’s amazing, at bedtime, when I can corral the children, I just shout ‘We’re going to watch one of David’s documentaries’ and they come herding in.

“It’s the easiest way to catch my children and get them ready for bedtime.”
