Queen's Cop26 anger at 'irritating' world leaders who 'talk, but don't do'

The Queen has appeared to suggest she is irritated by a lack of action in tackling the climate crisis.

Her remarks emerged in clips of a conversation filmed on a phone camera during a trip to Cardiff for the opening of the Welsh Senedd.

Two video clips, parts of which are inaudible, show the Queen chatting with the Duchess of Cornwall and Elin Jones, the parliament’s presiding officer.

The royal monarch can be heard saying: “We only know about people who are not coming... It’s really irritating when they talk, but they don’t do”.
