Prince Charles set for 'seismic' royal tour to make 'big noise' in support of climate

Daily Mirror royal editor Russell Myers sees Prince Charles taking an “absolutely massive” move on climate change as the royal could visit China next year. Mr Myers notes how the Prince of Wales has already been mingling with international leaders at major events to talk about climate change. While nothing has been officially confirmed, Xi Jinping has extended an invitation to Charles, 72, to visit and talk with major Chinese CEOs about climate change next year.

Speaking on Pod Save the Queen, Mr Myers looked at Prince Charles’ recent speech at UN Biodiversity Conference hosted in China.

The future king called for the world’s biggest polluters to pay more to tackle climate change.

The heir charmed over attendees when he spoke in Mandarin – and was invited by Xi Jinping to speak in 2022.

Charles attended the event virtually and urged China to join the Sustainable Market Initiative.

Mr Myers looked at how Charles could continue the debate when he ascends the throne, commenting: “I think it’s very, very interesting.

“This is starting a conversation that he’s obviously trying to take globally so we may see him in China next year.

“And that will be absolutely massive because if he is, as the next head of state, a big noise on the international stage.

“We’ve seen him talking at Davos, we’ve seen him talking to UN leaders.

The prince said at the UN event: “China is, of course, critical to our shared future on this planet.

“It is, therefore, my great hope that, together, we will be able to work towards establishing a China Council as part of my Sustainable Markets Initiative….in order to help accelerate the green economy globally.

“This Initiative aims to help find immense and accelerating solutions to the practical problems posed by climate change, and to scale them up to promote the global cooperation which is critical to achieving a sustainable future for our children and grandchildren.

“I am delighted that we now have an opportunity to engage with you all as representatives of the Chinese private sector.”
