Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall was wearing an emerald green top and pencil skirt, appropriately chosen for the conference focused on fixing the environment and creating a sustainable future. The Duchess’s top was buttoned down the front, and her matching emerald green skirt was knee length with a straight-fitting cut. To help with the cold November weather, Camilla could be seen wearing a black cape, as well as black gloves, tights, and boots to keep her warm up in Scotland for the occasion.
The Duchess and Prince Charles were both appropriately wearing poppies to commemorate Remembrance Day, which falls on November 11.
Camilla also wore a matching green handbag, remarkably similar to the Launer handbags often worn by the Queen at royal engagements.
The Queen, who was due to attend the COP26 Conference, pulled out of the event under her doctor’s orders to rest.
Camilla, according to many royal commentators, will be doing many more royal engagements in the future to step in for the Queen amid her absences.
Twitter user Andrew Christison loved Camilla’s green outfit, appropriately chosen for the environmental event, writing: “I see what she did there!”
Instagram user @khatrina54321 added in agreement: “Camilla looks amazing.”
Prince Charles gave a speech at the COP26 conference, where he spoke about needing a “war-like footing” to help solve climate change.
Looking incredible in the Queen’s place at the COP26, the Duchess of Cornwall was sporting a monochrome green outfit, reminiscent of the block colours the Queen often wears on royal engagements.
Camilla looked beautiful wearing a wonderful green power suit with a pencil skirt.
She topped the look off with a black cape, and she carried a complimenting green bag by Demellier, costing £295.
Her leather gloves offered a nice touch to the outfit, while also keeping her warm up in Scotland.
Camilla’s hair was styled immaculately in her usual style, while her makeup was fresh and subtle.
The conference in Glasgow is seen as the moment when countries must deliver on pledges made in the accord agreed in Paris six years ago.
This includes limiting temperature rises to well below 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels and pursuing efforts to curb warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius, beyond which the worst impacts will be felt.
Issues spoken about included efforts to phase out coal, as well as wishes to finalise parts of the Paris climate accord agreed in 2015 to make it effective and operational.
Prince Charles took a tumble on his way to make his speech at the COP26 on Monday afternoon, before pleading with world leaders to come together to tackle climate change.
The Prince of Wales was invited to speak at the United Nations climate change summit, currently being held in Glasgow, as he has long been an ambassador for environmental issues.
But as he made his way up to the podium the Prince tripped, before recovering to continue the walk to make the speech.
After recovering from his slight wobble, Prince Charles told delegates at the Cop26 global climate conference in Glasgow: “The scale and scope of the threat we face call for a global, systems-level solution based on radically transforming our current fossil fuel-based economy to one that is genuinely renewable and sustainable.
“So ladies and gentlemen my plea today is for countries to come together to create the environment that enables every sector of industry to take the action required.”
