In early March, the duo made a trip to the Ukrainian Cultural Centre, where they made sure to show their support for the country.

"Over the past two weeks, communities and organisations here in the UK have come together to provide vital support to Ukrainians here in Britain and across Europe. The Ukrainian Cultural Centre in London has become one of many hubs organising donations, material aid and supporting Ukrainians living locally," a message from the couple's official Instagram account read.

The message continued, "The work volunteers here are doing to ensure that help gets to where it is most needed is inspiring. So too is the incredible generosity of the British public. The Disasters Emergency Committee has already received over £132 million in donations, and continues to raise funds to support the essential humanitarian effort. Find out more via @DisastersEmergencyCommittee or check with your local charity about what they are most in need of."

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry also released a statement about the tragic state of affairs.

"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.
