This week the Queen attended her first in-person engagement at Windsor Castle since contracting COVID-19. She met with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau – and royal fans spotted a special message of support in the background.

The Canadian PM is in the UK for talks about the war in Ukraine with Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Dutch counterpart Mark Rutter. As photos of their in-person meeting circulated online, eagled-eyed fans spotted the brightly coloured flowers in the background. As Her Majesty greeted the Prime Minister, a large vase of yellow and blue flowers was in the background.

The floral arrangement mirrors the colours of the Ukrainian flag colours and many believe it was a subtle nod of support to the people of Ukraine. Ukraine citizens are currently facing growing conflict and violence from Russia, more than 1.7 million people have fled their homes for safety, seeking refuge across Europe.

The Royal Family have already shown support for Ukraine following the Russian invasion, and this is yet another message of solidarity. Both the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, and Prince Harry and Meghan Markle posted messages of supports on Instagram. While Prince Charles addressed guests at the Ukrainian Catholic Cathedral in London this week. He said, 'I must say my wife and I have been deeply moved by everything we've heard today during our visit and above all by the extraordinary bravery, generosity and fortitude of the Ukrainian community in the face of such truly terrible aggression.'

It was reported that The Queen donated privately to the Disasters Emergency Committee in light of the ongoing distress in Ukraine. The organisation, which coordinates 15 major UK charities to support overseas disasters, also thanked her majesty.

They took to Twitter to thank her writing, 'Many thanks to Her Majesty The Queen for continuing to support the Disasters Emergency Committee and for making a generous donation to the DEC Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal. @RoyalFamily #UkraineAppeal.'
