King Charles invested South Korean girl group BLACKPINK as Honorary Members of the Order of the British Empire (MBEs) on Thursday, Nov. 22, to recognize their role as advocates for the United Nations Climate Change Conference.

“His Majesty invested Blackpink members Roseanne Park (Rosé), Jennie Kim, Jisoo Kim and Lalisa Manoban (Lisa) as Honorary Members of the Order of the British Empire (MBEs), in recognition of the band’s role as COP26 Advocates for the COP26 Summit in Glasgow 2021,” the Palace said.

King Charles, joined by South Korea’s President and the First Lady for their official state visit to the United Kingdom, recognized the members for encouraging “millions of young people to engage with the global UN climate change conference and the topic of climate action.”

“​​​​​​​In their role as COP26 Advocates, Blackpink released a series of videos aimed at encouraging young people to learn more about climate change, which resulted in significantly increased engagement with the Summit from a young audience,” the Palace added.

BLACKPINK earlier attended the Buckingham Palace banquet where King Charles acknowledged them in his address.
