British monarch, Queen Elizabeth II has urged world leaders to rise above the politics of the moment and accomplish genuine diplomacy at the COP26 summit.
The 95-year-old sent this advice in a recorded video message.
Her majesty had been booked to go to the United Nations conference in Glasgow, but had to pull out at the last minute because of a health alarm.
She rather pre-recorded her address last week at Windsor Castle subsequent to being encouraged to rest by royal doctors.
In the video message, Queen Elizabeth asked world leaders in attendance to create a “safer, stabler future” for the planet.
According to her, they should also pay tribute to her “dear late husband, Prince Philip.”
“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.
“I could not be more proud of them.” She said.
She added the “impact of the environment on human progress was a subject close to the heart” of the Duke of Edinburgh, who passed on in April at 99 after over 70 years wedded to the Queen.
Going further, the Queen of the United Kingdom and 15 other Commonwealth realms revealed that she drew great solace and motivation from the persistent enthusiasm of individuals, all things considered, – particularly the – in calling for everybody to play their part
“In the coming days, the world has the chance to join in the shared objective of creating a safer, stabler future for our people and for the planet on which we depend.
“None of us underestimates the challenges ahead: but history has shown that when nations come together in common cause, there is always room for hope.” the Queen said
The Queen added;
“It is the hope of many that the legacy of this summit – written in history books yet to be printed – will describe you as the leaders who did not pass up the opportunity; and that you answered the call of those future generations.
“That you left this conference as a community of nations with a determination, a desire, and a plan, to address the impact of climate change; and to recognise that the time for words has now moved to the time for action.”
“Of course, the benefits of such actions will not be there to enjoy for all of us here today: none of us will live forever. But we are doing this not for ourselves but for our children and our children’s children, and those who will follow in their footsteps.”
