Queen Elizabeth II faces threats from royal fans but also controversial world leaders, royal biographer Robert Aldrich has claimed. He noted that while many love the Queen, the monarch is “in the most peril” when sat next to world leaders.

Speaking to True Royalty’s Royal Beat, Mr Aldrich said: “There are two threats to the monarchy, either Victoria or the current monarchy.

“Firstly people who are sadly, a little bit unstable that’s very common.

“The world loves the Queen, the Queen can travel around the world, no one is going to have a go at the Queen but it’s who she is sitting next to.

“She’s often sitting next to the most controversial leaders and that’s when she’s in the most peril.”

His comments come as the Queen and senior members of the royal family will attend a series of events during the Cop26 UN Climate Change conference, Buckingham Palace has announced.

Glasgow is hosting the global summit and during the event the Queen, Prince of Wales, Duchess of Cornwall, and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will carry out royal engagements from November 1-5.

Charles is a long-standing environmental campaigner and has been joined in recent years by his son William, who has established the Earthshot Prize – an award recognising innovations that “repair” the planet.

Winners of the award, a 10-year project with a total prize fund of £50 million, will be announced later this month.

If the Queen 'can't deal with something she just doesn't' says expert

The Glasgow conference has been billed as crucial to delivering the goals of the Paris Agreement which, when it was agreed in 2015, recognised countries needed to significantly increase action to cut greenhouse gases.

But the while the gap between meeting the temperature goals, intended to stave off the most dangerous impacts of global warming, and action has reduced since Paris, it is not set to be closed by next month’s summit.

The Queen has held her first major event at Buckingham Palace since the pandemic began, launching her Commonwealth Games 2022 baton on a global relay.

Paralympic gold medallist Kadeena Cox was given the honour of taking the baton on the first leg of its 90,000-mile journey which will lead to the opening ceremony in the host city Birmingham.

The Queen handed the symbol for the “friendly games” to four-time Paralympic champion Cox – who won two gold medals at Rio 2016 and two at Tokyo 2020 – after a message to the athletes and the Commonwealth was inserted into the baton.

The televised event in the palace forecourt was another step in the gradual return to normality following the upheavals of the Covid-19 outbreak.

Cox, who took the baton on a brief journey around the nearby Queen Victoria Memorial before handing it to another competitor, said about the experience: “It’s really special.

“I fall into this category where I’m very diverse – I’m a female, disabled, black athlete – for me I think that’s what the Commonwealth represents and especially being in Birmingham which is such a diverse place.

“It’s that coming together and unifying of all the different nations, of all the different cultures, of all the different religions – everything coming together and culminating in one amazing sporting Games.”
