Sophie becomes first royal in Ukraine with surprise visit

The Duchess of Edinburgh has become the first member of the Royal Family to visit Ukraine since the Russian invasion.

On Monday she went on a one-day visit, on behalf of the Foreign Office, to “demonstrate solidarity with the women, men and children impacted by the war”.

The duchess paid her respects to those who had lost their lives in the town of Bucha during the Russian occupation.

There was also a meeting with Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky.

The Royal Family has been unusually outspoken in its support of Ukraine, with King Charles marking the second anniversary of the invasion in February by warning of the “indescribable aggression” and the “unprovoked attack” by Russia.
