Prince Charles and The Duchess of Cornwall Express Solidarity With Ukraine During Royal Visit

Both Prince Charles and his wife paid a visit to the Ukrainian
Catholic Cathedral in London on Wednesday, where they expressed their
solidarity to Ukrainians.

The Prince said: “I
must say my wife and I have been deeply moved by everything we’ve heard
today during our visit and above all by the extraordinary bravery,
generosity and fortitude of the Ukrainian community in the face of such truly
terrible aggression.”

The heir to the throne
also said that he and his wife had been moved by the “bravery, generosity
and fortitude” of everyday Ukrainians.

Cathedral staff told the
royals that Ukrainian men have been seeking blessings before traveling back to
their homeland to join the fight against Vladimir Putin’s army.

The Duchess appeared close
to tears as leading members of the UK’s Ukrainian community welcomed the couple
by singing a mournful version of the song Chervona Kalyna, Red Guelder
Rose, which was sung by Ukrainian insurgents during the Second World War. 

Charles and Camilla each
lit a candle and left floral tributes at the cathedral in London in
acknowledgment of the suffering of residents of the Eastern European country.

The couple was also joined by the
Ukrainian ambassador Vadym Prystaiko, and his wife Inna Prystaiko. As the
royal couple left, Camilla hugged the diplomat’s wife and said that they
would pray for her.

Mr. Prystaiko said he was
“touched” by the Duchess hugging his wife and that he would
convey the message this symbolized back to his country.

Asked about Charles’
comments, he disagreed with any suggestion they were political, saying:
“It’s not political anymore, we’re past political we’re in survival mode. As
the Prince mentioned, we’re trying to find a way how a nation of 40 million
people can survive the aggressor. We hope and pray we will be able to stop this,
the question is how without real support from Nato, from the UK, from the
United States… he’s still bombarding our cities.”
