The Prince of Wales has arrived in Romania to show his support for Ukrainian refugees and to see first-hand the assistance being provided.

It is the first visit from a senior royal to the region since the start of the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

Prince Charles has been strongly outspoken about the war, attacking the “brutal aggression” inflicted on Ukraine. Having travelled to Bucharest, about 150 miles from the Ukraine border – this is also the closest a senior British royal has come to the conflict.

The Prince also has a long-standing connection with Romania, having set up a charitable foundation in the country and restored a traditional farmhouse.

The latest figures show almost a million Ukrainians have already crossed the border into Romania.

According to reports, More than six million people have left Ukraine in the three months of the war. In the past week alone, a further 40,000 people are estimated to have crossed into Romania.
