Her Majesty The Queen made a subtle tribute to Ukraine's people amid the brutal invasion of the country by Russian forces – and royal fans love her sweet gesture.

Yesterday morning the Monarch met with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau at Windsor Castle marking her first in-person engagement since recovering from Covid.

Mr Trudeau visited the UK to discuss the war in Ukraine with Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Dutch counterpart Mark Rutte.

Situated on the table behind the Monarch and Mr Treudeau, a large bouquet of blue and yellow flowers were placed alongside the Queen's personal photos. Blue and yellow are the colours of the Ukrainian flag.

Sources have claimed that this is a deliberate sign of solidarity from the Queen with the people of Ukraine, Mirror reports.

After seeing Her Majesty in a blue and yellow dress with the flowers behind her, fans on Twitter didn't miss a beat.

One said: "Did you see this new photo of the queen and the Canadian Prime Minister? ABC News didn’t catch it but look at the colors of the flowers. Obviously representing the Ukraine flag.

"Love her."

Another said: "Please note, our amazing Queen in Ukraine colours. Flowers; Ukraine colours. She rocks."

And a third penned: "Blue and yellow flowers…The Queen is famous for staying politically neutral But nothing she ever does is unintentional I love this move."

Mr Trudeau confirmed in a press conference with Mr Johnson and Mr Rutte that he talked to Her Majesty about the Ukraine.

He explained: "I can tell you in my conversation with her this morning she was as insightful and perspicacious as ever, very interested in what's going on."

The Monarch hasn't yet spoken publicly about the Ukraine, however it was revealed last week that she made a "generous donation" to the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) to help civilians affected by the conflict.

But other royals have publicly voiced their solidarity with the people of Ukraine.

Last Wednesday, the future King Prince Charles praised the "extraordinary bravery and fortitude" of the people of Ukraine.

He said: "He said: "I must say my wife and I have been deeply moved by everything we have heard today during our visit and above all by the extraordinary bravery, generosity and fortitude of the Ukrainian community in the face of truly terrible aggression.

"Our thoughts and prayers, however inadequate they may be are with all of you at this most critical time."

And last Saturday, William and wife Kate published a personal message saying they stood with the people of Ukraine.

They wrote: "In October 2020 we had the privilege to meet President Zelenskyy and the First Lady to learn of their hope and optimism for Ukraine's future.

"Today we stand with the President and all of Ukraine's people as they bravely fight for that future."
