Queen Elizabeth II will not be attending next week’s COP26 summit in Glasgow.
The Queen was meant to be a guest at the climate conference, but after a recent hospital stay, it has been announced she will no longer attend.
Yesterday it was reported that the British monarch was still hoping to be present at the UN climate convention. However, Buckingham Palace now says that the Queen has “regretfully” decided not to attend.
The 95-year-old monarch spent a night at the King Edward VII hospital in Marylebone, London last Wednesday.
Her son, Prince Charles, and grandson, Prince William, are both due to attend COP26 alongside other world leaders and major climate activists like Greta Thunberg.
Subject to his health, Pope Francis is also due to be at COP26.
