THE Queen waded into the climate debate on Thursday, suggesting world leaders are “irritating when they talk but don’t do”.

Her unscripted remarks were filmed on a phone after she opened a session of the Welsh parliament.

She also beamed when reminded of grandson Wills’ call for focus on Earth rather than space tourism.

The monarch echoed Greta Thunberg yesterday by taking a swipe at world leaders who “do nothing” in the fight to save the planet.

Prince William also weighed in — saying it would be “too late” and an “absolute disaster” if son George was trying to tackle climate change in 30 years.

Her Majesty’s unscripted remarks came in a chat with Camilla, filmed on a phone camera.

The pair — who had been at the reopening of the Welsh parliament, or Senedd Cymru — were overheard discussing the UN Climate Change Conference (COP26), being held in Glasgow from October 31.

The Queen is heard saying they “still don’t know” which of 120 world leaders will attend the summit, adding she has “no idea”.

She then says it is “irritating” when “they talk, but don’t do” — to nods from Camilla and Senedd presiding officer Elin Jones.

Eco warrior Greta, 18, recently slammed world leaders for their “blah blah blah” promises to address the climate emergency.

The footage of the Queen shows her saying: “Extraordinary isn’t it . . . I’ve been hearing all about COP . . . still don’t know who is coming . . . no idea.”

She adds: “We only know about people who are not coming . . . and it’s really irritating when they talk, but they don’t do.”

In a separate clip of the Queen’s visit, posted online by the Welsh government, Elin Jones leans in and says: “Exactly, it is a time for doing — and watching your grandson (William) on TV this morning saying there’s no point going to space, we need to save the Earth.”

William said billionaires should be spending their money and minds on fixing the planet.
