Prince William and Kate Middleton 'stand with people of Ukraine' as they 'fight for their future' in Russian invasion

PRINCE William and Kate Middleton have said they stand by Ukraine during Russia's invasion of the sovereign nation.

William and Kate tweeted their support for Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and "all of Ukraine's people" in a tweet personally signed off with their initials.

The couple included the flag of Ukraine in their tweet.

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."

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 royal pair met the president and his wife, who were on a two-day visit, in the palace's Throne Room.

It comes as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle also said this week that  they "stand with the people of Ukraine" in a statement issued from their £11m Montecito mansion.

The Sussexes condemned Vladimir Putin's invasion of the sovereign nation, but have offered no comment on news the Duchess of Cornwall will become Queen Consort when Charles is king.
