London (Reuters) – After her recent hospital stay, British Queen Elizabeth II will not attend the upcoming world climate summit in Glasgow in person.
The Queen will not travel to the evening reception on November 1st, Buckingham Palace announced on Tuesday. The background is the recommendation to rest. Instead, the queen will address the delegates by video message. The decision was a sensible precaution, it was said in palace circles. But let the queen be in good spirits. The 95-year-old Queen spent one night in the hospital last week. The climate conference will take place from October 31 to November 12. The Queen announced in the middle of the month that she expected the heads of state and government to be more committed to climate protection.
