Kate Middleton and Prince William could be heading to the US next year for the next Earthshot Prize Awards.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were the king and queen of green as they awarded the winners of a £50million planet saving prize earlier this month.
Speaking at a reception afterwards, William said: "We raised the bar – now over to the US."
But while royal author Phil Dampier says it is a "logical step" for William and Kate to attend the ceremony across the pond, he believes a reconciliation with Meghan and Harry is unlikely.
"I don’t think William and Kate would want to meet up with Harry and Meghan, who could try and steal their thunder on the earth shot project," he said.
"They are very much rivals now, not brothers in arms, and I’m afraid I can’t see a reconciliation soon."
He continued: "If Harry dropped his book project and admitted some of his and Meghan’s comments were over the top there might be some progress, but I can’t see it happening.
"William and Kate have always been very popular in the US but have not been there for some time so they will want to boost their profile and next year, during the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee year, would be a golden opportunity.
"If they stayed with Harry it would turn into a circus and also be a security nightmare, taking attention away from the green cause, so I expect William and Kate to concentrate on their efforts and not meet up with them."
This year, William helped present the show alongside wife Kate, who dazzled in a dress royal fans last saw at a Bafta event in 2011.
And according to reports, the pair were "full-on snogging" backstage.
Body language expert Darren Stanton has noticed a shift in their behaviour. He says the royal couple are becoming increasingly "human" when appearing together in public, signalling a shift at home with the Cambridges.
"It looks like the couple are being mischievous," Darren said after looking at images of the pair. "Both are displaying genuine smiles and happiness and show a couple very much in love."
But with every great love story comes cynicism, and it's impossible to ignore that Kate and Wills' change of pace has coincided with Meghan and Harry's bid for freedom.
A YouGov poll suggests nearly half of 18 to 24-year-olds believe the monarchy should be replaced.
Darren says William and Kate's deviation from royal protocol could be a way of attempting to connect with the media and the public.
"They’re cultivating the public perception of them," Darren says. "William and Kate realise that in this day and age they have to have a very public profile and they have to open up and build a rapport with the public, so they’re not afraid of being human.
"They're a great reset for the monarchy. They’ve got a much different outlook on what they want the monarchy to do. I don’t think they want the monarchy to be a stifled thing that’s locked away in a box, I think they want it to be as open and as accessible as possible."
