Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II will attend a pivotal United Nations climate change conference in Glasgow this fall, organizers said in a tweet Friday, giving a royal boost to the event.
The British government, which is organizing the talks, has insisted that COP26 will go ahead despite the challenges of international travel brought by the pandemic. COP26 would be one of the biggest in-person international events since the pandemic began.
