King Charles laughs as Stella McCartney curtseys and admits she doesnt know what to do

King Charles leftStella McCartney in a fluster when he kissed her and she forgot how to greet him.

The monarch met the fashion designer as he hosted a Buckingham Palace reception ahead of the UN climate change summit Cop27.

Politicians and business figures from around the world attended the bash – with notable guests including Prime MinisterRishi Sunak and John Kerry, the US Special Presidential Envoy for Climate.

The King was spotted greeting Stella, the 51 year old daughter of Beatle Sir Paul McCartney, with kisses on either cheek as Mr Sunak looked on.

Stella, who has met and worked together with the King several times in the past when he was Prince of Wales, appeared flustered and said: "Your Majesty, I don’t know what I’m supposed to do any more."

She followed up by saying, "I think I’m supposed to do this now," before performing a deep curtsy and letting out a little squeal, a move that left the King and PM giggling.

Mr Sunak spoke of how he saw a lot of Stella as their children went to the same school.

Charles thanked them for attending the reception, with the PM responding: “It’s all about what you’ve done.”

The reception, for more than 200 guests, comes after Mr Sunak reversed his decision to skip Cop27 in Egypt next week.

Despite No 10’s U-turn, the King is still not planning to attend the summit, despite him being passionate about climate issues.

When Liz Truss was PM, an "unanimous agreement" was reached that the King should not attend after advice was sought by his office from the Government.

Downing Street said on Thursday the King might have been able to join delegates in Egypt for Cop27 if Mr Sunak had been in office earlier in the year – but now it was no longer “feasible”.

Stella was asked if it would have been a “good idea” to have the King attend the summit.

She replied: “I think it’s good to have him everywhere talking on this subject matter but I don’t think it’s realistic to do so.”

She added: “That’s really the beauty of today and the work that King Charles has been doing, he is truly getting the world leaders in business and the world leaders in politics into the same room.

“They’re all here for one reason – people are facing problems, we need solutions and we all have to work together.

“There’s no way this works or can be meaningful or we can reach any of the Paris agreement numbers unless we all come together and try to tackle the biggest problem we face.”
