Kate Middleton Hosts World Leaders and in Style at Climate Change Summit


After completing her half-term break, Duchess Catherine has returned with style to her royal duties in Glasgow, Scotland. The city is currently hosting The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP26). And to kick off their official visit to the Scottish city, Prince William and Duchess Catherine, who are known as the Earl and Countess of Strathearn when in Scotland, began their tour by visiting a Scouts club at Alexandra Park Sports Hub in Dennistoun.

The group was celebrating their Promise To The Planet campaign, which intended to show how the Scouting community is helping youth tackle the issue of climate change.

Kate, who is joint President of the Scouts Association, looked fashionable in her laid-back outfit, which featured skinny black jeans, a turtleneck, combat boots, a Ganni puffer vest, and an elegantly placed Scout scarf. According to Hello Magazine, the royal couple learned how to make vegetarian and planet-friendly Cop burgers. William and Kate also created wildflower seed bombs and helped attend to some bicycle maintenance to support sustainable transport. The Promise To The Planet initiative intends on teaching 57 million Scouts environmentally-friendly skills.


During meal preparation, the ever-doting mother-of-three asked the children if their school was feeding them enough healthy food. “Do you get enough veg at school?” queried Kate. As per Hello reports, the children shared that they are being fed a healthy diet. As evening fell on COP26, the official reception to mark its commencement took place, and the Duchess transformed from her Scouting attire into the epitome of glamor.

Kate lit up the room filled with world leaders in a fantastically tailored and cut coat dress designed by the brand Eponine. She styled the electric blue outfit with sleek navy-blue pumps, with her hair placed in a meticulous up-do. Prince William stood beside her in his navy suit, and climate focused Prince Charles and his wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall were also in attendance. The royals have proven their passion for climate change over the past few weeks, with Charles even calling out Prime Minister Scott Morrison for his lack of action.

During an interview with the BBC, Prince Charles was told the Prime Minister remained on the fence about attending. “Is that what he says?” the heir to the throne asked climate editor Justin Rowlatt. Justin then pressed the royal to give advice to the Australian government regarding their inaction when it comes to climate change. “I mean you gently try to suggest there may be other ways of doing things, in my case anyway, otherwise you lot (the media) accuse me of interfering and meddling, don’t you?” Charles replied.
