They were pictured at a meeting at the palace on Sunday afternoon.

Ms Zelenskaya had previously visited Westminster Hall to see the reclining queen.

World leaders, dignitaries and royalty from all over the world are flying to London to be received by Britain’s new monarch before attending the funeral of Queen Elizabeth II tomorrow.

Royals have welcomed First Lady Olena Zelenska after Ukrainian forces have put up an incredible rebuff to a Russian invasion in recent weeks.

However, members of their own family, Prince Harry as well as Meghan Markle were reportedly not invited to the reception.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are unlikely to attend the event after palace aides insisted the event was for “working members of the royal family” only, according to The Telegraph.

The state funeral will be held at Westminster Abbey and will begin at 11:00 am.

The news came as it was thought that Meghan and Harry’s children would not be granted HRH titles.

According to the Sun, the agreement is that Archie and Lilibet can be Prince and Princess, but not His/Her Royal Highness because they don’t work as members of the royal family.

The Sussexes stopped using HRH in January 2020 when they stepped down as senior members of the royal family.
