The 40-year-old prince made a secret visit to the border earlier this week, where he thanked troops for ‘defending our freedoms’ – but his efforts led to ridicule from Maria Zakharova, the ministry’s information director Russian Foreign Minister, who called him “son of Charles”.

Britain has supplied Ukraine with weapons – including depleted uranium shells for Challenger 2 tanks – during the ongoing conflict with Russia.

According to The Sun newspaper, Zakharova added: “I wonder if William Charles-ovich brought depleted uranium ammunition for his troops.”

The Prince of Wales was in Warsaw, Poland, on Thursday (23.03.23), where he laid a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

Wiliam also left a handwritten note on the site. It said, “In memory of those who made the ultimate sacrifice.”

Meanwhile, in February, King Charles hailed the “truly remarkable courage” of the Ukrainian people.

The 74-year-old monarch hailed the courage and resilience of the Ukrainian people, in a message marking the first anniversary of the Russian invasion.

Charles said: “It has now been a year since the people of Ukraine suffered unimaginably from a large-scale unprovoked attack on their nation.

“They have shown truly remarkable courage and resilience in the face of such a human tragedy.

“The world has watched in horror at all the needless suffering inflicted on Ukrainians, whom I have had the great pleasure of encountering here in the UK and, indeed, across the world, from Romania to Canada.

“It is encouraging that the UK, together with its allies, is doing all it can to help at this most difficult time.

“Therefore, I can only hope that the outpouring of solidarity from around the world will not only bring practical help, but also the strength to know that together we are united.”
