The sign off being W & C shows it's a personal tweet from the royal couple which is not always the case on the @KensingtonRoyal page.

Earlier in the week, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle issued a message on their Archewell charity website, condemning Vladimir Putin's invasion of Ukraine.

The message, which was shared on Thursday night, read: "Prince Harry and Meghan, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex and all of us at Archewell stand with the people of Ukraine against this breach of international and humanitarian law and encourage the global community and its leaders to do the same."
