Royal fans have gushed over Prince William’s waterproof outfit as he visited an oyster shell collection project yesterday and took a dip in the river.

The Prince of Wales, 41, got waist deep in the Hudson at the Billion Oyster Project, which aims to make the waters around New York clean by putting a billion oyster shells in them by 2035 to act as natural filters. 

As he got stuck into the project and helped to collect the shells, William showed his casual side with his shirt slightly buttoned down and rolled-up sleeves, plus a water proof suit and a navy blue baseball cap. Wading through the water on the East River, he evoked images of Mr Darcy from Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice.

After fan accounts posted snaps of William on Instagram and Twitter, royal lovers flocked to swoon over the Prince of Wales’s ‘handsome’ and ‘sexy’ look.

The high praise of William from US fans as he heads stateside comes after he emerged as the most highly regarded public figure among US citizens, even beating Ukraine’s President Zelenskyy to hit the top spot.

Arriving at Newark airport on a commercial flight, William said: ‘It’s so good to be back in United States. No one does optimism and ingenuity like the American people, so it’s only right we unveil this year’s Earthshot finalists in New York City.

’80 years ago, the world came together in this great city to find a new way, through the UN, to solve our shared challenges.

‘I know our generation can take the bold action we need to make changes towards a healthy and sustainable world. The challenge may feel huge, but as John F Kennedy taught us, we rise to the challenge not because it is easy, but because it is hard. And vital’.

On Governor’s Island William met schoolchildren who are studying marine biology and talk with employees of the Billion Oyster Project.

Royal fans gushed over Prince William on social media, labelling him ‘handsome’ and ‘sexy’ – and they thought he could pull off waders

He saw the giant pile of oyster shells that are donated by 75 restaurants in New York rather than being sent to landfill sites.

And afterward – despite the gray skies and rain – he waded into the East River from a small beach and put some oysters into the water.

In response to the photos of William’s engagements which were shared on social media, royal fans on Twitter and Instagram were keen to let the Prince of Wales know they were in favour of his more casual look.

One fan wrote: ‘Who new waders could look so good!’

Another, who praised the royal, referred to him as ‘our handsome and sexy Prince William.’

Last month, US citizens revealed their fondness for Prince William in a national poll, which named him as their favourite public figure.

The Gallup survey, which asked people to rank 15 public figures, saw the Prince of Wales top the list above people including former US president Donald Trump and Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky.

At the bottom of the list was Russian president Vladimir Putin, who ordered his forces to invade Ukraine in 2022.

According to the survey, 59% of people asked said they viewed Prince William favourably.

In fourth place was William’s father, King Charles, who received a 46% approval rating from the participants.
