Prince William and Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge, on Saturday issued a statement in support of Ukraine amid the ongoing Russian invasion. 

“In October 2020 we had the privilege to meet [Ukrainian] President [Volodymyr] Zelenskyy and the First Lady to learn of their hope and optimism for Ukraine’s future,” the couple tweeted

“Today we stand with the President and all of Ukraine’s people as they bravely fight for that future,” the two said, adding a Ukrainian flag emoji and signing the tweet “W & C.” 

The statement comes a day after Prince Harry and Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, expressed their support for Ukraine in a statement on their website, Archewell

“Prince Harry and Meghan, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex and all of us at Archewell stand with the people of Ukraine against this breach of international and humanitarian law and encourage the global community and its leaders to do the same,” the statement read.

Queen Elizabeth II, who tested positive for the coronavirus last weekend, has not put out a statement on the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
