This is the text (if you need help).

Britain's King Charles cares about the environment. He was going to speak at the COP27 climate change conference next month. U.K. newspapers say he is not now going. This is because Britain's new prime minister, Liz Truss, asked him not to. A royal expert said he had to think carefully about his first overseas trip as King.

Newspapers say Charles disagrees with Ms Truss on the climate. Truss has already lifted a ban on fracking. Fracking risks environmental damage. Charles has a history of "declaring war" on climate change. He once called for "trillions, not billions, of dollars" to fight it. U.S. President Biden praised King Charles' leadership.
