Queen Elizabeth news: Charles blasts Ukraine war as ‘attack on democracy’ as monarch, 95, returns after covid battle


PRINCE Charles blasted the Ukraine war as an “attack on democracy” – while the Queen was seen for the first time since her Covid diagnosis.

The Prince of Wales – who previously compared the Russian despot to Hitler – spoke of his “solidarity” for the Ukrainian people.

The future king warned of the threat posed in Eastern Europe to democracy as he spoke in tribute to murdered MP Davis Amess, at a ceremony to mark Southend becoming a city today.

The Prince paid tribute to murdered local MP, saying: “What we saw in the terrible tragedy in Southend was an attack on democracy on open society, on freedom itself.

“We are seeing those same values under attack today in Ukraine in the most unconscionable way. In the stand we take here, we are in solidarity with all those who are resisting brutal aggression.”

Meanwhile, the Queen was today seen for the first time since testing positive for Covid as Her Majesty returned to work today.

Sources close to Her Majesty, 95, say she has been passed fit after testing positive last month and this morning hosted two virtual audiences.

The monarch met ambassadors from Andorra and Chad via video call.
