In an article dated May 21, 2022, the Mirror talks about the secret actions of the British royal family. Members of the royal family are hosting Ukrainian refugees.
Since the Russian invasion of Ukraine, six million Ukrainians have fled their country. Of these millions of refugees, 54,000 have reached the United Kingdom, reports the British media outlet The Mirror. In its May 21, 2022 article, The Mirror also reported that members of the British royal family have been hosting Ukrainian refugees, although they are firmly committed to secrecy. Moreover, according to sources in the Daily Express, these royals have also made cash donations. “We are helping in many ways,” a spokeswoman told the Daily Express.
England’s Queen Elizabeth II, 96, Prince Charles, 73, Camilla Parker Bowles, 74, as well as Prince William, 39, and Kate Middleton, 40, Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, have made donations to support the Ukrainian people. These donations come after the Emergency Committee for Disasters appeal. Through fundraising, the coalition of 15 charities has raised more than 300 million pounds. Members of the British royal family have not hidden their support for Ukraine since the Russian invasion. Also note 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, the 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 the yellow and blue of Ukraine, and commissioned floral 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 Centre in London. “For our generation, it’s very unusual to see this in Europe. We are all behind you. We are thinking of you,” the father of Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis had said. In addition, Prince William and his wife Kate Middleton have offered to use their royal foundation to provide more support to Ukrainians. The help is aimed at refugees suffering from mental health problems after witnessing the war.
