Queen Elizabeth news – Her Majesty makes ‘generous donation’ to Ukraine appeal after second Royal engagement this week


THE Queen has made a “generous donation” to a Ukrainian aid appeal to support those affected by the Russian invasion, a charity has said.

The Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) expressed its thanks to the monarch on Twitter for “continuing to support” its work.

Buckingham Palace declined to disclose the amount given, but the DEC described it as a “generous donation”.

The organisation, made up of 15 charities, launched its Ukraine appeal on Thursday to provide emergency relief to those who have left their homes after Russian President Vladimir Putin launched an invasion a week ago.

Meanwhile, Her Majesty welcomed more diplomats by video link at Windsor on Thursday.

The monarch welcomed two new High Commissioners to the UK as she held her second virtual audience of the week following a bout of Covid.
