Members of the British royal family have always shown their support for Ukrainians.
They have been vocal about their support in public and have made cash donations.
The British royal family is also acting in secret and harboring Ukrainian refugees.
Since Russia invaded Ukraine, six million Ukrainians have fled their country. Among these millions of refugees, 54,000 have joined the United Kingdom, reports the British media The Mirror. In its article of May 21, 2022, The Mirror also reports that members of the British royal family have taken in Ukrainian refugees while strongly wishing to keep the matter secret. Separately, according to Daily Express sources, these royals have also made cash donations. “We are helping in a number of ways,” a spokeswoman told the Daily Express.
Queen Elizabeth II of England, 96, Prince Charles, 73, Camilla Parker Bowles, 74, as well as Prince William, 39, and Kate Middleton, 40, Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, made donations to support the Ukrainian people. These donations come after the appeal of the Emergency Committee for Disasters. Through fundraising, the coalition of 15 charities raised over £300 million. Members of the British royal family have made no secret of their support for Ukraine since the Russian invasion. It should also be noted that Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall were in Ottawa as part of the celebration of the Platinum Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II of England on May 17. The opportunity for Camilla to encourage a Ukrainian family who had left their father behind to fight, reports The Mirror. “We are so behind you. We are so worried about you,” Camilla Parker Bowles, Duchess of Cornwall, told the family.
British royals continue to show support for Ukrainians
Queen Elizabeth II of England herself recently showed her support in a relatively subtle way. Elizabeth II, 96, wore Ukrainian yellow and blue, and commissioned flower arrangements in the same colors at Windsor Castle, reports The Mirror. In March, Prince William, Duke of Cambridge also renewed his support for the Ukrainian people during a visit to the Ukrainian Cultural Center in London. “For our generation, it is very unusual to see this in Europe. We are all behind you. We are thinking of you,” said the father of Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis. Additionally, Prince William and his wife Kate Middleton have offered to use their royal foundation to provide more support for Ukrainians. The aid is aimed at refugees suffering from mental health problems after witnessing the war.
