A new report from the U.K.’s Daily Mail claims the Duchess of Cornwall can’t stop talking about an embarrassing moment suffered by U.S. President Joe Biden at a recent climate summit.
In a tongue-in-cheek report, the Mail‘s Gwen Owen wrote that Biden was “produced a little natural gas of his own at the COP26 summit,” and “it was audible enough to make the Duchess of Cornwall blush.”
The Mail cited a source close to the royal family who said Camilla, who has been married to Prince Charles since 2005, “was taken aback to hear Biden break wind as they made polite small talk at the global climate change gathering in Glasgow last week.”
The source reportedly said “Camilla hasn’t stopped talking about it.”
“It was long and loud and impossible to ignore,” they added, according to the Mail.
The now-president faced a similar allegation back in May of 2020 during an appearance alongside Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf (D), as Breitbart reported at the time.
Of course, this likely isn’t the headline Biden was hoping to elicit as he wrapped up the climate conference. Speaking last week at the COP26 summit in Scotland, the U.S. president said he hoped the event would “be the kickoff of a decade — a decade of ambition and innovation to preserve our shared future.”
“Climate change is already ravaging the world,” he said, according to a White House transcript. “It’s not a hypothetical; it’s not a hypothetical threat. It’s destroying people’s lives and livelihoods and doing it every single day. It’s costing our nations trillions of dollars.”
Biden said nations today are “standing at an inflection point in world history.”
“We have the ability to invest in ourselves and build an equitable clean-energy future and in the process create millions of good-paying jobs and opportunities around the world — cleaner air for our children, where bountiful oceans, healthier forests, and ecosystems for our planet,” the president said.
“And in an age where this pandemic has made so painfully clear that no nation can wall its all — wall itself off from borderless threats, we know that none of us can escape the worse that’s yet to come if we fail to seize this moment,” he added. “We can do this. We just have to make a choice to do it.”
Unfortunately for Biden, it seems that message was overshadowed by his latest faux pas. And we can bet it won’t be the last.
