Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are upset that they lost someone close to their heart.

The two made a statement about the tragic incident, but they did not mention the name of the person who died in Ukraine. They may be referring to Serhii Karaivan, a former trialist for the Invictus Games and Warrior Games for Team Ukraine.

"Our hearts are heavy as we acknowledge the recent loss of a member of our veteran community in Ukraine, who was defending his country from attack," they said in a statement. "We also pay tribute to the brave men and women from our global veteran community, past and present, who have long protected their countries and families with unparalleled strength and determination. We are continuing to work and speak with the Invictus Games Foundation daily to help however we can."

The couple spoke about the ongoing war between Ukraine and Russia last month.

"Prince Harry and Meghan, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex and all of us at Archewell stand with the people of Ukraine against this breach of international and humanitarian law and encourage the global community and its leaders to do the same," a statement posted to their Archewell website on Thursday, February 24, read.

The duo have also been vocal about helping out whenever possible. "Prince Harry and Meghan, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, through their non-profit Archewell Foundation, have made donations to a number of organizations working on the ground to support the people of Ukraine, including HIAS, The HALO Trust, and a coalition of Ukrainian media such as The Kyiv Independent, supported through the organization Are We Europe," a statement read. "We are also continuing to work with our partners at World Central Kitchen and The World Health Organization to assist with the global and local humanitarian response to the crisis."
