As a result, it’s said that members of the royal family are now offering homes to a number of people from Ukraine.

They have joined politicians, business leaders, and thousands of others offering to house some of the six million Ukrainians who have fled their country in the face of the most serious conflict in Europe since the Second World War.

We are so behind you. We do worry about you so much.

Buckingham Palace insisted to the Express that members of the family are working on a number of projects .

However, it declined to elaborate on the plan to take in refugees.

A palace spokesperson said: “We are assisting in a number of ways but will not be commenting further.”

Subtle nods of support from the Queen

The Queen has been showing support for the stricken nation in subtle ways in public of late, too.

She has been seen wearing outfits in Ukraine’s famous yellow and blue, while also ordering flowers to Windsor Castle in the same two colours.

“These things don’t tend to happen by accident,” a senior royal source said.
