With a blue and yellow bouquet and a homemade patriotic ribbon: Kate Middleton meets with Ukrainian refugees in England
The wife of Prince William, Kate Middleton, visited the British community center "All Together" that supports Ukrainian refugees. Her Royal Highness's visit was timed to coincide with the first anniversary of the hub, which was established in October 2022 by two women from Bracknell who wanted to help Ukrainians fleeing the Russian terrorist invasion of the UK.
The Princess of Wales talked to young Ukrainian refugees, immersed herself in the work of the center, and even made a blue and yellow jewelry with her own hands, which she then wore on her chest. This was reported by the Daily Mail.
During the royal visit, the hub hosted a master class on making Ukrainian badges-bows, which are often worn by Ukrainians in Europe. The Princess joined the event and made a patriotic "brooch" with her own hands.
Receiving instructions from two women who regularly make these ribbons and put them up for sale, Katherine seemed extremely focused on her task. However, she wasn't thrilled with the result, so she joked: "I don't think you can sell this ribbon!"
As part of her visit, the wife of the future King of the United Kingdom took part in the day-to-day work of the center, including helping to pack donated essentials into aid packages to be sent back to Ukraine.
In addition, Kate Middleton had a warm conversation with Ukrainian children. Moreover, she joined their interactive activity - she painted a mighty tree in the colors of the Ukrainian flag with her palms. This touching moment moved everyone present.
As OBOZREVATEL previously reported, the grand final of the Eurovision Song Contest 2023 took place in Liverpool, UK, on behalf of Ukraine. Last year's winners, the Ukrainian rap band Kalush Orchestra, had the honor of opening the show. But they didn't do it alone. The essence of the video was that the Ukrainians were sung to, danced to, and accompanied by famous Britons. It was unexpected to see Kate Middleton among them. Read about it in our article.
