The new Duke and Duchess of Edinburgh have attended a reception at the City Chambers to recognise Edinburgh’s work in supporting Ukrainian refugees, and to thank the range of volunteers who are supporting them across the capital.

During the reception, Their Royal Highnesses met volunteers and members of the Ukrainian and Eastern European diaspora in Edinburgh, including families who have made the city their home since the beginning of the conflict last year.

Earlier today, it was announced that The King had conferred the Dukedom of Edinburgh upon The Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex and Forfar, on the occasion of His Royal Highness’s 59th birthday.
