The Duchess of York, 62, said today’s episode of Storytime with Fergie and Friends – in which she read Do Not Wish For A Pet Ostrich by Sarina Siebenaler – is ‘to all the children out there.’

The Duchess said: ‘Today is Ukraine Independence Day. And I just wanted to say to all the children out there, Storytime with Fergie and Friends, this is for you. This is for you because we don’t forget about you.

‘You are with us and today we are thinking of you, we’re thinking of everyone in the Ukraine, mums, dads, aunts and uncles, granny, grandma, and all children. We are thinking about you.’

In the clip, the former wife of Prince Andrew could be seen sporting a floral headband and a necklace of sunflowers, teamed with a white shirt.

In front of her, on a check tablecloth, sat more flowers and adorable animal ornaments.

In July, the Duchess visited Poland for the third time since war broke out with Russia in neighbouring Ukraine.

She spent time at Mieroszewski Palace in Bedzin, a city in southern Poland, chatting to families who’ve fled the Ukrainian city of Obukhov, which is twinned with Bedzin. 

Wearing a royal blue jacket, with a Ukrainian badge pinned to it, the Duchess chatted to dignitaries from Bedzin, as well as greeting children and babies from war torn Obukhov.

In March, Prince Andrew’s ex wife, who is grandmother to Princess Eugenie’s son August, one, and Princess Beatrice’s daughter Sienna, born in September, became the first member of the extended royal family to travel to Poland to meet Ukrainian refugees.

Her charity, Sarah’s Trust sent three articulated lorries with supplies to Poland, and she travelled to Warsaw where she was welcomed by Mayor Rafał Kazimierz Trzaskowski, to find out ‘what more we can do’.

Fergie, who earlier this year returned to her online show Story time With Fergie and Friends to show support to the children of Ukraine, was pictured embracing and comforting young people and their families who have escaped the invasion.

At the time, she told her 365,000 Instagram followers: ‘I have always believed the smile of a child is the most important thing in the world, so to see so many children caught up in this crisis is particularly affecting.’

She added: ‘It is a privilege to meet some of them and hear their stories today. The world has a duty to support them.’
