Britain is to “pull out all the stops” to convince critical nations including China to do their bit for climate change as the most senior members of the Royal family plan to attend the Cop26 conference en masse. The royals command significant respect in nations essential to solving climate change and are understood to be keen to do their bit to push world leaders to make and keep pledges to save the environment. Alok Sharma, the conference president, has said China, the “biggest emitter in the world”, will have to be a key part of any agreement, adding that the “ball is in their court” to make the talks a success. It is understood that Chinese negotiators are to attend the conference, but the attendance of Xi Jinping, the president, has not been confirmed. The Queen, who at the age of 95 now rarely travels, is to attend next the Glasgow conference for a diplomatic reception, joined by the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall, and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
