Britain’s Prince of Wales will arrive in Romania for a visit which includes meeting Ukrainian refugees in the Romanian capital.

Prince Charles  will express his solidarity for the support shown by Romanian authorities to the Ukrainian humanitarian crisis of recent months. More than one million have entered Romania since Russia launched its invasion three months ago.

His Royal Highness will be accompanied by Her Majesty Margareta, the Custodian of the Crown of Romania, who has also supported relief efforts for Ukrainian refugees in Romania, a press release said.

The prince, who has regularly traveled to Romania in the past 24 years, will also meet President Klaus Iohannis during his visit.

Given the constraints imposed by limited space and security measures, only a small number of previously accredited Romanian and British journalists will be able to accompany the Prince of Wales to  the  Bucharest exhibition arena Romexpo where some refugees are being housed.

The British Embassy will provide  images and video material to media in Romania.

Charles, a patron of many charities, has been visiting Romania since the late 1990s and has frequently visited Romania, where he is a popular figure. The Prince of Wales last visited the country in 2019, before the pandemic struck. 

Prince Charles has recently been vocal against Russian aggression in the area and has undertaken a series of global demonstrations of support for Ukraine.
