TThe Queen greeted world leaders at a sparkling G7 reception in Cornwall, where Prince Charles urged the crowd to tackle climate change with the same urgency as the pandemic.

During the reception, the Prince of Wales urged G7 leaders to show the same sense of urgency in tackling climate change as they have shown in tackling the coronavirus pandemic.
Speaking at Project Eden, Charles said the Covid-19 pandemic had shown what a “truly borderless crisis” looked like.
“Of course, we haven’t fully seen Covid coming,” he said.
“Yet climate change and biodiversity loss represent a crisis without borders, the solutions of which have been debated and postponed for far too long. “
He said the battle against the pandemic has provided “a clear example of the scale and speed at which the global community can cope with crises when we combine political will, corporate ingenuity and public mobilization.”
Speaking to G7 leaders and a group of business leaders, the prince said: “We are doing this for the pandemic. So if you don’t mind me saying this, we have to do it for the planet as well.
Boris Johnson and his wife Carrie – dressed in a floral gown from The Vampire’s Wife – arrived at the Eden Project ahead of the Royal Family and were there to welcome the Queen after she entered the popular tourist attraction around 6:30 p.m.
The Queen walked right in front of Charles and Camilla and they were followed a few steps away by William and Kate.
Kate wore a £ 3,000 cream midi dress from Alexander McQueen while Camilla opted for a black and white long sleeve dress.
