Prince Charles looked infatuated with the canary-yellow Formula-E race car in Glasgow today at the Cop26 summit. 

As he attended an event at the Kelvingrove Museum and Kelvingrove Art Gallery in Glasgow this morning, the heir-to the-throne, also known as the Duke Of Rothesay, was impressed by McLaren’s souped up car. 

The 72-year-old Duke looked dapper in a crisp grey suit with a blue overcoat. He walked out of the museum to have a closer look at this futuristic vehicle.

Charles is an environmentalist and his car, an Aston Martin vintage, runs on bioethanol made from supply waste, rather than petrol.

Senior royals, including the Duchess and Prince William, as well as Kate Middleton, have all traveled to Scotland this week for the 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference.

The heir to the throne seemed especially excited when he stepped out from the museum and took in the race car up-close. 

He also had a chat with Emma Gilmour, McLaren’s first female driver, as well as Leena Gage, the racing tam’s chief engineer.   

Zak Brown (CEO McLaren Racing) escorted him to learn more about McLaren Racing’s efforts to transition away from fossil fuels and other traditional power sources to be greener. 

Charles had a poppy pinched to his suit and another pinned to the blue of his coat in preparation for Remembrance day next week.

McLaren’s F1 team was carbon neutral certified ten years ago, and has maintained that standard ever since, he stated. 

McLaren committed in September to putting sustainability at the core of everything they do. 

The car manufacturer wants to leave a zero-carbon footprint by 2030. 

The pledge states that we are aiming to work with all stakeholders to make a positive contribution to a sustainable future. 

“By taking small steps, such as those outlined in the pledge, and learning more about environmental impacts, we can make positive changes to protect our planet for future generations.”
