Media: Trick against Charles’ participation in the climate conference

British King Charles III. will not participate in the world climate conference in Egypt in November – according to information from the “Sunday Times”, Prime Minister Liz Truss was against it. The staunch environmentalist Charles really wanted to make a speech at the conference, the paper reported. But Truss spoke out against the new British king’s participation in a personal meeting last month.

The monarch’s press service contradicted this interpretation: instead, Charles sought Truss’ advice on this issue. “It has been agreed in friendship and mutual respect that the King will not attend,” the BBC said citing a statement from the service.

Speculations on the withdrawal of commitments

There is currently speculation that Truss could withdraw his country’s international climate commitments. There are several ministers in his new cabinet who are skeptical about the 2050 climate neutrality target. The Sunday Times wrote that the prime minister is unlikely to attend COP27 in Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt.
