Britain’s Queen forgets to turn off the microphone and talks about leaders ‘who talk but don’t act’

Queen Elizabeth II has expressed her dismay at world leaders who “talk” about climate change but do not “act”. She did so in a private chat on Thursday on the sidelines of a speech to the Welsh Parliament, but her remarks were recorded because the British Queen’s microphone was still on.

The 95-year-old discussed the United Nations Climate Conference in Glasgow (COP26), which begins on October 31, with Speaker of Parliament Ellen Jones, losing her usual restraint: “Extraordinary, isn’t it? I’m hearing talk of a cop…but I still don’t know who’s coming. No idea’. She continued, “We just know who won’t come… It’s really annoying when they talk but don’t do anything.”

Among the leaders who have yet to confirm their attendance at the two-week UN climate summit in Scotland are Chinese President Xi Jinping, Russian leader Vladimir Putin and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Prince Charles, the Queen’s son and longtime environmental activist, called on leaders earlier this week to “roll up their sleeves”. His son William, second in line to the British throne, on Thursday criticized businessmen who are drowning in space tourism. He said in an interview with the BBC that it would be better if they focus on saving the planet BBC. The Speaker of the Welsh Parliament sparked this rare attack, with some criticizing the frontal attack by Prince William on the Queen to which Elizabeth II replied with a smile: “Yes, I read that.”
