Meghan Markle and Prince Harry dropped for COP26 video speech after Queen’s message

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have hit the headlines recently for their involvement in different political matters. Last month the Duchess of Sussex wrote an open letter to Congress, advocating for paid family leave in the US. They also wrote a letter for COP26, asking world leaders to take action in ending the pandemic during this “window of opportunity.”

Neil Sean spoke about the snub on his YouTube channel.

He said: “As you know, they were not invited because it was just senior royals of the British Royal Family.

“That didn’t stop the twosome deciding that they could have an input.”

He added: “According to a source, Harry and Meghan allegedly offered to send a video. Any chance to get on Zoom and they’re there.

“It’s interesting because they wanted to offer not necessarily a political statement, but their good wishes to people attending.

“Can’t knock them for that, they had good intentions.”

Mr Neil said: “Apparently the organisers for COP26 were very keen, but it was very early stages so it wasn’t quite broached with HRH Prince Charles or Prince William.

“This is where it all went wrong, the bigger problem for Harry and Meghan was that once Her Majesty decided to pull out, then the next stage was to record her own personal tribute.

They claimed: “As global leaders convene for COP26 to commit to solutions for our climate crisis, all of us at Archewell, led by The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, share our pledge towards a more sustainable future by becoming net-zero by 2030.

“We are a young company, but today, Archewell joins our co-founders in committing to reach net-zero carbon emissions by 2030.”

“Achieving net-zero carbon emissions means making a series of choices over time to make that footprint as small as possible while compensating for any remaining emissions through high-quality carbon removal projects.”

They have recently been slammed for their frequent use of private jets.

Prince Harry ensures he’s part of climate health action with new event as royals at COP26

Prince Charles and Prince William have met with world leaders in Glasgow during the COP26 climate change summit. The Prince of Wales and his son have taken on more work during the conference after Queen Elizabeth II was forced to miss it due to doctors’ advice.

Now, Prince Harry has made sure he is part of the climate change plan after welcoming delegates of the Center for Compassion and Altruism Research and Education (CCARE) into a conversation about climate change.

CCARE tweeted: “Prince Harry, The Duke of Sussex, welcomed Realising a Compassionate Planet delegates to a conversation related to climate health and mental health, facilitated by Dr. James Doty.”

Over the years, the Duke of Sussex has launched a number of initiatives tackling the climate crisis, and has previously described it as one of the world’s “two most pressing issues”.

Richard Eden claimed the 37-year-old prince and his wife Meghan Markle would have “hated” not being present at COP26 due to the high-profile platform it offers.

In a recorded video message for world leaders, the Queen praised her son Prince Charles and her grandson Prince William for their contribution to the climate debate and their environmental activism.

Speaking of Harry’s response on the MailPlus podcast Palace Confidential, diary editor Richard Eden said: “They will have hated not being at COP26, I mean just the chance to talk to the whole world with Prince William there.

“One thing, in the Queen’s speech, which I think will have been genuinely hurtful for Harry was no reference to him.

“The Queen talked about how her husband’s environmental concerns were being built on by his son Prince Charles and his grandson Prince William.

Both the Prince of Wales and the Duke of Cambridge, alongside their two wives, were in attendance and had been photographed with world leaders such as US President Joe Biden and German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

Both Charles and William have conducted a number of engagements throughout the week, which has included attending Stella McCartney’s sustainable fashion show, meeting Earthshot Prize finalists, and hosting meetings with world leaders.

The Duke of Sussex is also a passionate advocate for sustainability and the environment and has given several speeches on the matter both during his royal career and post-Megxit.

During an interview with Oprah Winfrey for the Apple TV+ series ‘The Me You Can’t See’, he said: “With kids growing up in today’s world, pretty depressing, right, depending on where you live, your home country is either on fire, it’s either underwater, houses or forests are being flattened.”

He also called for a post-Covid “reckoning moment” for people to start tackling the climate crisis, which he linked to mental health.

The prince is also President of Africa Parks, a conservation group that works to protect natural wildlife and ecosystems in Africa’s national parks.

Harry and Meghan have previously come under criticism for their use of private jets.

In the summer of 2019, they took four private jets in the space of 11 days, which included visiting Elton John’s home in the South of France.

The prince has defended these trips, saying that he flies commercial “99 percent of the time” and launched his own sustainable travel company, Travalyst.”
