Queen ‘close’ with William and Charles after praise in COP26 speech, says expert

2 min read

The Queen's emotional speech at the COP26 climate summit last week shows a "greater closeness between" Prince William and Prince Charles, according to a royal expert.

The 95-year-old monarch addressed world leaders via video as she was forced to miss out on the summit following her recent health scare.

In the address she called for action on climate change and urged those present to "rise above the politics of the moment and achieve true statesmanship". She also heaped praise onto her family.

Her Majesty said: "It is a source of great pride to me that the leading role my husband played in encouraging people to protect our fragile planet lives on through the work of our eldest son Charles and his eldest son William.

"I could not be more proud of them."

Valentine Low, royal correspondent for The Times, reckons that the speech sheds light on some behind the scenes Royal Family dynamics.

He wrote on Saturday: "The passage in which she said how proud she was of the work done by the Prince of Wales and Duke of Cambridge may not have received the attention that it deserved.

"Her remarks may also reflect a greater closeness between the three of them."

A royal insider also told the publication that the three leading royals are "all in alignment" on the variations problems that The Firm has faced in recent years.

All three have seemingly come together on the issue of climate change in recent weeks.

Last month, William and Kate Middleton hosted their Earthshot Prize awards which saw five prizes of £1 million given to environmental projects from around the globe.

Just before that, in a rare interview with the BBC, Charles discussed how he has been reducing his personal carbon footprint, revealing that his Highgrove estate has long been operating as carbon-neutral.

He also said that he has converted his 50-year-old Aston Martin to run on "surplus English white wine and whey from the cheese process".

He added that he now doesn't eat meat for two days a week.
