Prince William & Kate Middleton Publicly Showed Their Support for Ukraine with a Rare Signed Message

As Russian troops continue to invade and attack areas of Ukraine, many high-profile figures have taken to social media to condemn these actions and show their support for the people of Ukraine.

Just a few days ago, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle made a rare post to their Archewell site, where they said, “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.”

Now, it looks like Prince William and Kate Middleton are following closely in the Duke and Duchess of Sussexes' footsteps because the couple just shared their own message to Twitter.

Early yesterday morning, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge posted a tweet that said, “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.”

Along with this note, the pair added an emoji of the Ukrainian flag and they signed the message “W & C,” meaning they drafted the message themselves.

A screenshot of the tweet was also shared to the couple's Instagram account, where followers showed their appreciation for the post. One person wrote, “Thank you for support,“ while another said, “Thank you from people of Ukraine.”
