Queen Elizabeth II Honors Prince Philip in Climate Change Speech

Queen Elizabeth II praised her family members in their efforts to fight climate change as she addressed the 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference.

On Monday, Nov. 1, she appeared on video at the Glasgow, Scotland event, known as COP26, to deliver a strong message about the importance of limiting global warming. She began her speech, which was previously recorded from Windsor Castle, with a tribute to late husband Prince Philip, who died in April at age 99. 

“This is a duty I am especially happy to discharge, as the impact of the environment on human progress was a subject close to the heart of my dear late husband,” she shared. 

The 95-year-old monarch went on to commend son Prince Charles and grandson Prince William for keeping this legacy alive. “It is a source of great pride to me that the leading role my husband played in encouraging people to protect our fragile planet, lives on through the work of our eldest son Charles and his eldest son William,” she said. “I could not be more proud of them.”
