Leonardo DiCaprio meets with Prince Charles at the UN Climate Change Conference
46-year-old Leonardo DiCaprio is not only a popular actor, but also a well-known eco-activist. Therefore, it is not surprising that he simply could not miss the 26th United Nations Conference on Climate Change (COP26), which is currently taking place in Glasgow. Leonardo arrived in Scotland a few days ago, and yesterday he met with Prince Charles.
Together they visited the exhibition of designer Stella McCartney "The Future of Fashion", which opened at the Kelvingrove Art Gallery. It is known that Stella also takes environmental problems seriously and has long been calling for more attention to environmental care. She was one of the first who refused to use natural leather and animal fur when creating collections.
All three discussed the issues on the conference agenda and shared their views on solving climate problems. On the eve of DiCaprio also published his appeal to world leaders and urged them to save humanity.
I call on the leaders at the COP26 conference to act decisively on the climate issue, protect our future and save humanity. It's time for solidarity and action,
- the actor wrote on his Twitter.
Prince Charles has also repeatedly publicly shared his concerns about the environmental situation in the world.
I don't want my grandchildren to reproach me for inaction regarding environmental protection,
- the heir to the British throne once said.
Prince Charles is not the only member of the royal family who took part in the events of the conference. So, Queen Elizabeth II addressed the participants (she could not attend personally, as doctors now recommended her rest and rest), and Kate Middleton and Prince William attended one of the meetings of world leaders within the framework of the conference.
