'Last chance saloon' Prince Charles takes a dig at Australian Prime Minister over COP26


    The Prince of Wales, 72, will join global leaders at the United Nations’ climate change summit in Scotland’s largest city next month. But in a wide-ranging interview with the BBC’s climate editor Justin Rowlatt, Prince Charles was asked about what Scott Morrison’s “reluctant” Australian Government can do to protect the environment.

    The Prince then claimed “this is a last chance saloon” to save the planet.

    “If we don’t really take the decisions which are vital now it’s going to be almost impossible to catch up.”

    The Prince of Wales will be joined in Glasgow by the Queen, 95, Prince William, 39, and Kate Middleton, 39.

    Following Charles’ climate change intervention, the ex-Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage came out to warn the Prince that he should “stay out” of active politics.

    Mr Morrison, unlike his predecessor Malcolm Turnbull, is a self-proclaimed constitutional monarchist.

    “It was one of the things Malcolm and I disagreed on, but look, I respect how all Australians feel on this,” he said.

    “It’s not something I go around beating my chest about.

    “It’s just I’ve got a lot of respect for the constitutional monarchy, if it ain’t broke, I don’t see the need to fix it, but I respect all Australians’ views on that, and I’m looking forward to seeing [the Royals].”

    The Australian Prime Minister, affectionately known as ScoMo, also placed a portrait of the Queen in the Prime Minister’s office after his predecessor had removed it.
