Queen: Eyes of the world will be on us at COP26 climate summit
The Queen has said the “eyes of the world” will be on the UK at the upcoming climate change summit in Glasgow.
At the opening of Scottish Parliament on Saturday the monarch urged politicians to engage with young people and create a better future.
She also paid tribute to pandemic heroes and said the country had cause for “hope and optimism” as we “step out of uncertain times”.
The Queen told Scottish leaders in Holyrood: “The eyes of the world will be on the United Kingdom and Scotland in particular, as leaders come together to address the challenges of climate change.
“There is a key role for the Scottish Parliament, as with all parliaments, to help create a better, healthier future for us all, and to engage with the people they represent, especially our young people.”
