Prince Charles meets Australian prime minister Scott Morrison at Cop26 summit – video
Prince Charles has met with Scott Morrison at the Glasgow summit. Prince Charles had generated headlines urging Morrison to attend Cop26 during a recent BBC interview. At that time, Australia’s prime minister was yet to land his net zero deal with his Coalition partner the Nationals, and was equivocating about whether or not he would fly to Glasgow. In a televised interview, the Prince of Wales warned of a ‘catastrophic’ impact if leaders didn’t turn up and ambitious commitments weren’t landed. When a BBC interviewer told the prince Morrison had not officially confirmed his attendance, Australia’s future monarch said he was aware he would be accused of meddling but action was needed immediately.
