Kate has attended every awards ceremony since they began two years ago but Kensington Palace has confirmed she will not be travelling to Singapore with her husband for November's event.
A source told The Mirror: "The Princess will not be attending. Prince George has exams that week and the Princess wants to be at home to support him."
Last year Kate starred at the Earthshot Prize Awards in Boston in a stunning, floor-length dress from rental firm HURR by Solace London and Princess Diana's emerald choker.
As she and William arrived at the awards, they were given a pop star's welcome and were greeted by hundreds of screaming fans.
Earlier this month, William travelled solo to New York and hailed the "inspiration and optimism" of the 2023 Earthshot Prize finalists.
William, who launched the £50million award to encourage and support the fight against environmental challenges, said: "It's gone better than I'd hoped", but there was "still a lot of work to do".
The Earthshot Prize aims to discover and scale up groundbreaking solutions to repair the planet and £1million in prize money will be presented to the winners in five categories, or Earthshots – Protect and restore nature; Clean our air; Revive our oceans; Build a waste-free world; and Fix our climate.
