Prince William and Kate lead royal reception as they meet with world leaders at COP26

PRINCE William and Kate Middleton have led a royal reception as they met with world leaders at COP26.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge stunned in blue outfits tonight as they stepped out to host a reception for the Earthshot Prize Awards.

The royals spoke with guests at a reception for the key members of the Sustainable Markets Initiative and the Winners and Finalists of the first Earthshot Prize Awards at the Clydeside Distillery.

Charles and Camilla also attended the event – which is part of the broader COP26 talks.

Earlier today, Boris Johnson urged leaders to be the James Bonds of the world – and diffuse the "doomsday device" of climate change.

In a sobering speech to open the historic Glasgow COP26 summit, the PM warned that time is running out to save the planet and demand they act now for the sake of their kids and grandkids.

In a sombre speech watched by Sir David Attenborough, Prince Charles and Camilla, and leaders from around the globe, he called on leaders to work out how to fix the "doomsday device" and save the world.

Charles and Sir David also gave rousing speeches to the leaders at the opening session of the summit, moving some in the room to tears.

Boris said the world's most-loved spy is usually found "desperately trying to work out which coloured wire to pull to turn it off, while a red digital clock ticks down remorselessly to a detonation that will end human life as we know it".

He warned gravely: "We are in roughly the same position, my fellow global leaders, as James Bond today…

"Except that the tragedy is that this is not a movie, and the doomsday device is real."

He admitted: "Not all of us necessarily look like James Bond.

"But we have the opportunity, the duty, to make this summit the moment when humanity finally began – and I stress began – to defuse that bomb.

"And make this the moment when we began irrefutably to turn the tide and to begin the fightback against climate change."

And emulating his inner Greta Thunburg, he said the world would not accept more "blah, blah, blah" of chiefs who talk the talk, but don't walk the walk.
