Hind Al Soulia - Riyadh - LONDON — King Charles will not attend the climate change conference COP27, which is due to be held in Egypt later this year, Buckingham Palace has confirmed.
The Palace was responding to a story in The Sunday Times, which claimed Prime Minister Liz Truss had "ordered" the King not to attend.
The Palace said advice had been sought by the King and given by Truss.
"With mutual friendship and respect there was agreement that the King would not attend," the Palace stated.
The King had previously indicated he would attend the annual conference, in his former role as Prince of Wales, prior to his ascension to the throne earlier this month upon the death of Queen Elizabeth II.
Royal correspondent Jonny Dymond said the BBC had put it to the Palace that the King must be personally disappointed given his long decades of passionate environmental campaigning.
But the Palace responded that the idea that the King was uncomfortable was not the case, and that he was ever mindful of the sovereign's role to act on the advice of the government.
Last November, as Prince Charles, the King traveled to Egypt with the then-government's blessing to urge the Egyptian administration on in its efforts, meeting President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi during a planned visit.
In the past, the King has demonstrated his deep commitment to environmental issues and, as Prince of Wales, had a long history of campaigning to reduce the effects of climate change.
Only last year he made a speech at the COP26 opening ceremony in Glasgow, when the summit was hosted by the UK. The late Queen also gave a speech at the event, via video link.
The Egyptian authorities said they hope to use their presidency of COP27 to urge the international community to act on pledges of support for developing countries to cope with the devastating impacts of climate change.
The UN Climate Change Conference takes place in Sharm El-Sheikh from Nov. 8-16.
Next week, King Charles will attend his first public engagements since the royal period of mourning came to an end, including a reception in Edinburgh for South Asian communities from across the UK and a visit to Dunfermline Abbey. — BBC
