British Prime Minister Liz Truss and Charles III are at loggerheads over the king's plans to attend the COP27 UN climate change conference.

This is reported by the Daily Mail.

According to the publication, Charles III, who is an ardent defender of the environment, planned to visit a climate conference in Egypt even when he was the Prince of Wales.

He intended to deliver a speech at a meeting of world leaders in Egypt.

The publication's sources rejected suggestions that Truss had told the king not to go, saying the palace and the government "jointly agreed that there may be more acceptable options" for Charles' first state visit.

"The idea that the prime minister can tell the king what to do is ridiculous," the message reads.

However, The Times reported that Truss allegedly did oppose the idea during a private audience at Buckingham Palace in September.

Reporters speculate that the decision is likely to fuel tensions between the new prime minister and the new monarch, although a Downing Street source said the conversation was cordial and "there was no falling out".

Another interlocutor of the publication says that the king will be disappointed if he does not take part in the conference.

It should be noted that Charles III has been opposing environmental pollution and climate change for many decades.

The 27th United Nations Climate Change Conference, known as COP27, will take place in Sharm el-Sheikh from November 6 to 18.

This may have been the first foreign visit of Charles III after he became king.
