Though the wedding does not completely give the reason why Newsom postponed his travel to the climate summit, he has close links to the Getty family. Newsom was anticipated to be in Scotland from November 1-3, as mentioned on his website, and potentially could have made it back in time for the weekend wedding.
According to SFGATE, Newsom’s staff informed the outlet on Monday that he spent all last week working out of the Capitol and intends to resume regular public engagements this week.
On Tuesday, he is slated to speak at the California Economic Summit in Monterey, which would mark his first public appearance since receiving his booster shot last month.
The event will be live-streamed and is sponsored by the nonprofit organisation California Forward. It’s unclear whether Newsom will take questions from the press.
