The Queen, Prince Charles, Prince William and Kate Middleton to Attend Climate Change Conference
The Queen, Prince Charles and Camilla, Prince William and Kate Middleton are set to attend the United Nations Climate Change conference beginning on 31st October and continuing until Friday, 12 November.
The Cop26 event will be taking place in Glasgow and is hosted by Britain in partnership with Italy. The conference is supposed to encourage world leaders to endorse massive climate change projects that will bring the planet closer to its sustainable goals.
The Duke of Cambridge Considered to be an Expert on Climate Change Issues by Commentators
Once again, Glasgow, Scotland, will be hosting the global summit. The Queen, along with Prince Charles and Camilla, Prince William and Kate Middleton, will be attending the diplomatic reception.
As the event draws closer, experts from all over the world are calling global leaders to make a pledge and carry it out in order to combat the growing threats of climate change.
The Duke of Cambridge and Prince Charles are expected to deliver speeches at the conference and hold discussions with world leaders, according to a report by the Daily Telegraph.
The spokesman for the Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment at the London School of Economics, Bob Ward, told the Daily Telegraph: “Prince Charles, and increasingly Prince William, have shown a particular interest in this area.
“Prince Charles is definitely recognised around the world as a deep thinker on these issues, and having a track record of having been interested in this for a long, long time,” he said, referring to the Prince’s devotion to organic farming, planting trees and preserving wildlife.
Mr. Ward also believed that the presence of the royal family will go a long way in increasing global perception about the U.K.’s dedication to tackling climate change issues.
Britain is doing everything it can to ensure that the parties involved leave the conference with the Paris Agreement goal
Gareth Redmond-King, of the UK’s not-for-profit Energy and Climate Intelligence Unit, said that the appearance of the royal family at the conference proved the UK was “pulling out all the diplomatic stops”.
He added that Britain is doing everything it can to ensure that the parties involved leave the conference with the Paris Agreement goal of keeping global warming to 1.5C achievable.
Prince Charles has since been a most active environmental campaigner, and has been joined in recent years by his son Prince William – who’s massive Earthshot Prize is expected to make a valuable impact on the planet in the coming decade.
Winners of the award, a 10-year project with a total prize fund of £50 million, will be announced during its inaugural award night later this month.
The Glasgow event has been described as an important means of delivering the goals of the Paris Agreement which, when it was agreed in 2015, recognized countries needed to significantly increase action to reduce greenhouse gases.
