Princess of Wales meets Ukrainian first lady at Buckingham Palace

Princess of Wales meets Ukrainian first lady at Buckingham Palace

Kate held an audience with Olena Zelenska at Buckingham Palace.

Downing Street had previously declined to confirm reports Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky’s wife would travel to the UK for the funeral.

She was pictured meeting Kate at the Palace on Sunday afternoon.

They sat either side of a fireplace on gingham armchairs with purple orchids on display in the background.

Ms Zelenska earlier visited Westminster Hall to see the Queen lying in state.

Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky writing a word in a book of condolences honoring the memory of late British Queen Elizabeth II during his visit at the residence of the Ambassador of Great Britain to Ukraine in Kyiv on September 12,2022.


She made the journey to the UK after her husband took time out from organising his country’s fightback against Russia to sign a book of condolence for the Queen.

The UK’s ambassador in Kyiv, Melinda Simmons, said she was “deeply honoured” by the president’s gesture.

“Grateful to the president for taking the time to do this given all else that is happening in (Ukraine) at this time,” she said.

The princess’s meeting with Ms Zelenska follows Liz Truss’s earlier audience with the King in the Palace’s 1844 Room.

The Prime Minister has also continued informal talks with world leaders as hundreds of dignitaries descend on London for Monday’s funeral.
