Report: King Charles to cancel planned COP27 appearance 

King Charles III will not be traveling to Egypt for the COP27 climate summit next month, after U.K. Prime Minister Liz Truss advised him to stay away, The Times reports. 

The monarch, a lifelong environmental campaigner, had planned on giving a speech at the 27th United Nations Climate Change Conference, taking place in Sharm el-Sheikh between November 6-18. It would have been his first overseas tour as king.

Truss objected to the plan during a private audience at Buckingham Palace last month, according to a royal insider cited by The Times. The person also said the decision was made “entirely in the spirit of being ever-mindful as king that he acts on government advice.”

Last year, both Charles and his mother, the late Queen Elizabeth, delivered speeches at the opening ceremony of the COP26 summit in Glasgow, Scotland. In contrast to his mother, Charles has been throughout his life significantly more vocal regarding his political views, campaigning for such things as organic farming and action on climate change.
