On Thursday, Prince William and Kate paid a visit to the London headquarters of the Disasters Emergency Committee to learn more about their ongoing appeal to support people affected by the conflict in Ukraine. They met aid workers who have returned from helping the humanitarian effort in Ukraine.
For the occasion, Kate recycled her Reiss, beige double-breasted blazer, and paired it with black trousers, a white t-shirt, and black Jimmy Choo’s Love pumps.
More than 4 million people have fled Ukraine since the conflict began and another 7 million displaced inside the country.

DEC charities and their local partners are in Ukraine and in neighboring countries providing food, water, shelter, and medical assistance. As well as providing for people’s immediate needs, donations to the DEC appeal will also help people affected by the conflict in the months and years ahead.
During the visit, William and Kate also learned more about the DEC’s ongoing appeal to support people affected by the ongoing conflict in Ukraine.
The appeal has raised more than £280 million, including £25 million matched by the Government, with donations from companies, trusts, arts institutions, community groups, schools, and individuals.
It’s not the first time the couple has offered support to the appeal from the DEC.
Back in March, the couple visited the Ukrainian Cultural Centre where they met volunteers to learn about services being offered at the center as well as the challenges they continue to face.
Prince William and Kate brought homemade chocolate brownies and granola bars with them from Kensington Palace to give to the volunteers. They also offered assistance from their charitable foundations for children and young people suffering mental health problems from the war.
