A pre-recorded video message from the Queen was shown at the summit. Charles and Camilla were joined by William and Kate at the climate change summit. The 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference, also known as COP26 is held in Glasgow, Scotland from October 31 to November 12.

The Royal Family official Twitter said: “This week, Clarence House and Kensington Royal are in Glasgow undertaking a number of visits and meetings in support of COP26 and its ambition for coordinated action to tackle climate change.”

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge responded to the Twitter post by the Palace.

The Cambridges tweeted: “We will have a great royal week to help save the planet.”

The news comes after the Queen was visited by a vicar on Sunday for a private mass at the Palace.

The Dean of Windsor reportedly visited Her Majesty, 95, for her own one-to-one Holy Communion.

While taking communion, the Monarch drank grape juice instead of alcohol as she recovers from the period of illness.

Usually, the Queen attends church on Sundays.

However, doctors have advised her to stay at home because of ill health.
