Royal Family News – Voicing Their Support
On Saturday, William and Kate tweeted their joint support for Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and “all of Ukraine’s people”.
The couple included the flag of Ukraine in the post, which was also shared by British Prime Minister Boris Johnson.
They wrote: “In October 2020 we had the privilege to meet President Zelenskyy and the First Lady to learn of their hope and optimism for Ukraine’s future.”
“Today we stand with the President and all of Ukraine’s people as they bravely fight for that future W & C.”
In October 2020, William and Kate welcomed Mr. Zelensky and his wife Olena to Buckingham Palace for an audience on behalf of the Queen. The two met and chatted in the palace’s Throne Room.

“But they’re not the first royals to comment; the King and Queen of the Netherlands released a statement on Thursday.”
Her Majesty, who is currently recovering from COVID-19, is yet to comment on the situation.
