King Charles to Host COP27 Event at Buckingham Palace – Town & Country

The King is clearly determined to show his support for the climate summit despite not attending in person.
Earlier this month, King Charles’s spokesman said .css-gegin5{-webkit-text-decoration:underline;text-decoration:underline;text-decoration-thickness:0.0625rem;text-decoration-color:inherit;text-underline-offset:0.25rem;color:#9a0500;-webkit-transition:all 0.3s ease-in-out;transition:all 0.3s ease-in-out;}.css-gegin5:hover{color:#595959;text-decoration-color:border-link-body-hover;}he would not attend this year’s United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP27) in Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt by mutual decision with the British government. However, it has now been announced that he will host an event in the UK to mark the climate summit, inviting more than 200 people for a reception at Buckingham Palace.
“His Majesty The King will host a reception at Buckingham Palace on Friday, 4th November 2022, ahead of the COP27 Summit. The reception will bring together over 200 international business leaders, decision makers and NGOs to mark the end of the United Kingdom’s presidency of COP26 and look ahead to the COP27 Summit in Egypt,” Buckingham Palace said in a statement.
Attendees will include the new British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, COP President Alok Sharma. and U.S. Special Presidential Envoy for Climate John Kerry. The King will make a speech.
The decision to host the reception is an indication of the King’s desire to support the event, despite not attending, following his decades of campaigning on the subject of climate change. When COP26 was held in Glasgow last year, Charles was centre stage at multiple events across several days and made frequent public remarks. The Sunday Times wrote at the start of this month that then UK Prime Minister Liz Truss had told him not to attend COP27 not long after he became king. In response, Buckingham Palace confirmed he will not go but emphasised that the decision was by mutual agreement, with sources indicating that it had been decided this was not the right occasion for him to make his first overseas visit as sovereign. Prince William will also not go to this year’s summit, which takes place from November 6 to 18.
As the longest-serving Prince of Wales in history, Charles made the environment a cornerstone of his work, founding and backing multiple organizations and initiatives to raise awareness of and tackle the climate crisis and encourage sustainable living. In his first speech as king, following the death of his mother on September 8, he chose to spell out the fact his new position will change how he spends his time. “My life will of course change as I take up my new responsibilities,” he said. “It will no longer be possible for me to give so much of my time and energies to the charities and issues for which I care so deeply. But I know this important work will go on in the trusted hands of others.”
