She wrote: "I was in Albania, at the invitation of @DannazHarman and @IsraAid, an emergency relief NGO. Since the Taliban began sweeping through Afghanistan, they have mounted an incredible evacuation effort of hundreds and hundreds of refugees to Albania; and I had the privilege of meeting these extraordinary people, and listening to their stories

"They included a top female judge, other women leaders in their respective fields, the all-girls national cycling team, doctors, long serving military, mothers, fathers, and children, some who had been separated from their parents."

She then went on to tell the stories of the "incredible" people she had met, including a senior policewoman who "fled for her life" and is now a refugee in Albania, as well as a woman named Halima who fled Afghanistan while eight months pregnant along with her five children.

Sarah shared words from Prince Andrew in a since-deleted post

Sarah's recent post comes just days after she took to social media to share Prince Andrew's reflections on the 40th anniversary of the start of the Falklands War, a conflict in which he served as a helicopter co-pilot. 

At the bottom of the third post read: "Written by HRH The Duke of York" - a title that Prince Andrew stopped using, along with his military titles, earlier this year.
