Queen Elizabeth of Great Britain refuses to attend COP26 after vacation tips

Britain’s Queen Elizabeth withdrew from the COP26 conference in Glasgow the following week after doctors advised her to take a break, Buckingham Palace said Tuesday that it was a blow to the United Nations climate summit.

A source at the palace said the decision not to attend was made as a “reasonable precaution” and that everyone would know in advance. The Queen remains in good spirits and wants COP26 to be successful, the source added.

“Following the advice to rest, the Queen took on light duties at Windsor Castle,” said Buckingham Palace.

“Her Majesty regretfully decided that she would no longer travel to Glasgow for the evening COP26 reception on Monday November 1st.”

The 95-year-old queen, the world’s oldest and longest reigning monarch, slept in hospital last Wednesday after undergoing a “preliminary investigation” into an unidentified but unrelated COVID-19 disease.

She held her first official event since her hospital stay earlier Tuesday, hosting two virtual classrooms to welcome new ambassadors to the UK from South Korea and Switzerland.

Elizabeth, queen of 15 other kingdoms including Australia, Canada and New Zealand, who celebrates her 70th birthday next year, is renowned for her robust health and continues to perform many public duties.

News of the cancellation could raise concerns about her health. She recently heard her annoyance with world leaders who talk about climate change but do nothing to address it.

The following Monday, the Queen was scheduled to attend an evening event as part of a conference that will bring together world leaders, including US President Joe Biden, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison.

Britain has named the UN climate conference COP26, which kicks off in Glasgow on October 31, as the last big chance to slow the rise in temperatures, and hopes to convince leaders to adopt tougher climate targets.

Johnson said on Monday, however, that it was a “random move” as to whether COP26 would manage to meet the requirements needed to limit the global average temperature rise to 1.5 degrees Celsius from pre-industrial levels and achieve zero net carbon emissions by 2050. G.

The Queen will deliver the message to the assembled delegates through a recorded message, the palace added. Elizabeth’s son and heir Prince Charles and his eldest son Prince William are still to be present.
