SNP News: Nationalists Celebrate Queen’s Health Problems – Royal Outrage Over Withdrawal From COP26 | Politics | New
They jumped at the news that the 95-year-old monarch was unable to attend the COP26 climate change summit which begins in Glasgow on Monday. It will deliver a pre-recorded video message instead.
And rather than sympathize with the UK’s longest-serving monarch, who recently lost her 73-year-old husband, they said his absence only reinforced the argument for Scottish independence.
User Jayfer55 #ScottishIndependence describes herself as a Scottish independence supporter who wants “a better future for my grandchildren NOW”.
She told her 3,500 followers, “GOOD # ScottishIndependence10.
“# COP26Glasgow Queen will not be attending the Cop26 summit in Glasgow, said Buckingham Palace.”

Meanwhile, the Scotland is Being Robbed account told its 5,200 followers: “Oh no, the Queen is not coming to # COP26.
“Who the hell cares? Absolutely right.
Concerns over the Queen’s health began after a preliminary medical examination at the hospital last Wednesday led her to cancel a planned visit to Northern Ireland.
Buckingham Palace later said she had “regretfully” decided not to attend.
She resumed her public engagements earlier today when she greeted the Ambassadors via a video link from Windsor Castle.
Despite this development, it was confirmed that she would not attend the summit after receiving advice from doctors for rest.
In a statement, the palace said: “Following the rest advice, the Queen has undertaken light duties at Windsor Castle.
“His Majesty has unfortunately decided not to travel to Glasgow to attend the reception of the COP26 on Monday November 1st.
“Her Majesty is disappointed not to attend the reception but will address the assembled delegates via a recorded video message.”
She is still expected to continue light duties in the meantime, including a conversation with Chancellor Rishi Sunak ahead of tomorrow’s budget, a long-standing tradition.
