She may be Princess of Wales but today, Kate was just one mother comforting another.
Heartbroken Galina Bolebrukh, 39, broke down in tears as she described to the future Queen the horrors of fleeing Putin’s war with her children.
Kate Middleton, 40, opted for her smart £460 camel Max&Co coat and a £279 polkadot LK Bennett dress as she arrived at the Reading Ukrainian Community Centre this morning, which is in the town where she was born, and praised those she met as ‘brave’ and ‘resilient’.
Elsewhere, the Princess cuddled up with Zlata Yeromenko – before being presented with a piece of artwork which read: ‘Kate, I love you.’
Kate also learnt about the extraordinary efforts being made to support Ukrainians in the UK by the centre and spoke with its volunteers.
The mother-of-three, who was pictured earlier this year fighting back tears as she visited a site in London, last month held an audience at Buckingham Palace with Olena Zelenska.
Her visit today comes as it was revealed The Royal Foundation of The Prince and Princess of Wales convened a roundtable last week to offer support the First Lady’s mental health strategy, which was announced in August to address the impact the ongoing conflict is having upon the mental wellbeing of Ukrainians.
