"I heard my daughter singing this morning and it's a song called Shine Jesus Shine and that made me very happy this morning," she told a little girl from Ukraine during a sweet moment. 

The Princess added: "Do you know that song? Does it have the same tune? I heard that this morning and it made me very happy this morning. I'm going to look up that song in Ukrainian." 

The royal mum-of-three was there to highlight the work of the hub, which supports Ukrainians affected by the ongoing conflict.
