Queen “Increases Pressure” on Boris Johnson to Deliver Cop26 with Frankish Comments | Television and radio | Show biz & TV



The Sky News correspondent commented on the Queen’s remarks on politicians’ inaction on climate change. Mr Powell said the unexpected comment was an “interesting intervention” from the Queen. He also said his comments “increased the pressure” on Boris Johnson to act at Cop26.

“China is still obviously very restricted in terms of travel because of Covid

“I think this will be interpreted by some as a bad sign.

“Having said that, it is underlined today that China, whatever happens, will send a high-level delegation.

“So a lot will depend on what they can get out of China, given that China is by far the biggest emitter on the planet.”

He continued, “This is an interesting intervention, I think, from Her Majesty.

“You obviously don’t hear him speak so honestly.

“You can debate whether this was meant on her behalf as something she wanted the world to hear, but it’s not necessarily helpful for the government or the UK.

“I think it increases the pressure on the government to do something rather than talk like she says.”


He added: “But the Queen was also hosting a reception for world leaders, and in this clip as well, she expressed her frustration at not knowing exactly who she is going to meet.”

It is understood that Xi Jinping will not attend Cop26, the climate summit in Glasgow in October.

The Queen reportedly told Elin Jones, President of Senedd: “Amazing, isn’t it? I have heard of COP. I still don’t know who’s coming. No idea.

“We only know people who don’t come. It’s really annoying when they talk but they don’t.
