Clarification: David Bellamy Inaugural Lecture At Buckingham Palace, 13 March

  • Date: 03/02/13

The story in yesterday’s Sunday Telegraph (“Duke of Edinburgh invites climate change heretic David Bellamy to Buckingham Palace”) is apparently wrong.

David Bellamy recently celebrated his 80th birthday. In his honour the Inaugural David Bellamy Lecture is taking place at Buckingham Palace – sponsored by the Chartered Institute of Water and Environmental Management of which HRH is Royal Honorary Fellow – hence the link and venue. David Bellamy, however, is not giving the talk himself. We are told that the lecture will be delivered by Professor Chris Baines.

The lecture was announced here:

13th March 2013

The Duke of Edinburgh
The Duke of Edinburgh 

Honorary Fellow, The Chartered Institute of Water and Environmental Management, will hold the Inaugural David Bellamy Lecture at Buckingham Palace.
