Kate Middleton and Prince William have electric chemistry, says Dermot OLeary


Dermot O'Leary, 48, told This Morning viewers on Monday that Kate Middleton and Prince William were on top form at the star-studded Earthshot Prize event the previous evening.

The event, founded by Prince William, 39, awards £1 million to environmental innovators and technologists in a bid to battle climate change.

Although guests included Ed Sheeran, Emma Thompson, Emma Watson and Coldplay, Dermot admitted that the chemistry between Kate and Will was the highlight of the night.

After Dermot was asked by journalist and presenter Giles Brandriff what the chemistry was like between the pair, he replied, "Oh, electric!"

Dermot added, "Oh you must have met them. They're disarmingly lovely and normal and you feel like you, as you are, just talking to regular people."

The father-of-one also said what a privilege it was to be in the same room as Sir David Attenborough and other influential people in the environmental field.

Both Kate and Will wore recycled outfits as part of the dress code rules laid out ahead of the event. Attendees were asked not to purchase a new dress or suit for the occasion.

Posting on his Instagram page later that evening, Dermot was, once again, singing Kate and Will's praises.

He wrote, "And that, as they say- is a wrap. A pleasure and a privilege to host the first ever @earthshotprize tonight with my friend @claraamfo. Thanks to the @dukeandduchessofcambridge for asking us (still getting my head around that) and for being so welcoming and inclusive. A truly life affirming night, with some inspiring and visionary ideas."

Prince William gave a rousing speech advocating for environmental change at the ceremony.

Addressing viewers at home, he said, "I want to say something to all the young people watching tonight. For too long we haven't done enough to protect the planet for your future, but Earthshot is for you.

"In the next ten years we are going to act. We are going to find the solutions to repair our planet. Please keep learning. Keep demanding change and don't give up hope. We will rise to these challenges.

Dermot will be hosting This Morning alongside Alison Hammond for the rest of the week.

The pair recently took over Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford's regular Friday spot on This Morning after 14 years of the married couple hosting.

This Morning airs weekdays at 10am on ITV and The ITVHub.
