British Queen celebrates


King Charles addressed the urgency of climate change at Cop28, setting aside the royal racism controversy to stress global cooperation for the planet's future. He emphasized the need for swift

action to curb the worsening impacts, appealing to world leaders to undertake significant measures to safeguard the Earth.

Despite ongoing controversies surrounding alleged comments about the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's son, the King's speech centered on the immediate threat posed by climate change. He pointed out the concerning rise in natural disasters and reiterated the urgency for transformational action, emphasizing the critical juncture presented by Cop28.

King Charles, a prominent figure in climate activism, highlighted the alarming trajectory of global temperature increase and the pressing need for substantial efforts to alter the current course. Notably, his address comes amidst predictions of a catastrophic 3-degree Celsius rise in global temperatures by the century's end, underscoring the gravity of the situation.

While delivering his speech, the King's choice of attire, a tie patterned with the Greek flag, raised speculation about political nods, although Buckingham Palace clarified that the colors were coincidental, rooted in his familial connection to Greece.

Despite the gravity of his climate message, the ongoing royal controversy continues to echo, with author Omid Scobie's book and the fallout from the Sussexes' interview adding strain to the monarchy's reputation. Though Scobie has defended his work, insisting the names were not in the English version, the lasting impact on the monarchy's image remains a concern for royal commentators like Joe Little from Majesty magazine, who noted the enduring impact of such allegations on both individuals and the institution as a whole.
