Charles III will carry on championing green issues as King

The King will continue to champion the environment while on the throne, palace sources have indicated.

However, he will “highlight” rather than campaign in the manner he has done for decades.

It comes after the King had a telephone conversation with Emmanuel Macron on Wednesday, during which the French president “signalled his full willingness” to continue their work together – “starting with the protection of the climate and the planet”.

The King will no longer travel to the Cop27 world leaders’ summit in Sharm el Sheikh, Egypt, in November, when he was due to push his own green agenda and announce a new forum on sustainability, The Telegraph has confirmed.

A tour of Bangladesh, India and Pakistan that was due to precede it has also been abandoned.

Instead, the King is expected to make his first official state visit to “one of our nearest neighbours” within weeks.

The moment will mark the resumption of overseas state visits by a reigning British monarch for the first time since 2015, when the late Queen made her final trip abroad, spending three days in Malta with the Duke of Edinburgh.
