The Luxembourg royal family has become the latest European monarchy to pledge to provide housing to Ukrainian refugees.
Henri, the Grand Duke of Luxembourg, 66, and his family will give up private property owned by the Grand Ducal Court of Luxembourg to families fleeing the Russian invasion.
The Dutch and Belgian royals have already vowed to help house refugees.
Prince Charles is said to be considering the possibility of using Dumfries House, in Scotland, for accommodation.

Among the properties privately owned by the monarchy is the 11th century Fischbach Castle, pictured, which was bought by the royals in 1847 and was the private home of Grand Duke Henri and his family until his ascension in 2000.
Luxembourg, which has a population of 632,275, has already provided refuge to 4,000 Ukrainians fleeing the war.
Prime Minister of Luxembourg Xavier Bettel yesterday announced the royal family’s intention.
Among the properties privately owned by the monarchy is the 11th century Fischbach Castle, which was bought by the royals in 1847 and was the private home of Grand Duke Henri and his family until his ascension in 2000.
It is understood to have recently been home to Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume and Hereditary Grand Duchess Stéphanie.
Meanwhile King Willem-Alexander and Queen Maxima of the Netherlands have offered to provide housing for up to 30 Ukrainian refugees in 15th Century castle Het Oude Loo, which is located on the estate of Het Loo Palace in Apeldoorn.
King Philippe and Queen Mathilde of the Netherlands confirmed in March that apartments managed by the Royal Donation, which manages the royal family’s property portfolio, would be used to home three families.
Last year, King Philippe and Queen Mathilde housed some of those who lost their homes in flooding.

In March it was reported that British royals are also considering plans to open some of their homes to Ukrainian refugees fleeing the horrors of war.
Aides to the Queen, Prince Charles and Prince William are understood to be examining a range of ‘practical measures’, including the possibility of jobs and training courses, as well as providing accommodation.
Charles is said to be looking at finding spaces on his Dumfries House estate in Ayrshire as well as sites across his Duchy of Cornwall holdings, which include a number of holiday homes.
The Queen’s Balmoral estate on Royal Deeside and Sandringham in Norfolk, which are both private and not funded by the taxpayer, could also provide space in holiday-rental cottages and offer temporary tourism-related and hospitality jobs.

A source told The Mail on Sunday: ‘All the households are united in this – the Queen, Charles and William – with all three agreed that they should find a practical way to help Ukrainian refugees.
‘It means looking at accommodation options in England, including the Duchy of Cornwall, where Charles has a lot of holiday homes, and Scotland, where he has Dumfries House and the Queen has her Balmoral estate.’
The Queen, Charles and his wife Camilla and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have all donated to a coalition of 15 British charities working on the Disasters Emergency Committee Ukraine appeal.
Charles and William have also spoken out in support of Ukrainians resisting Russian aggression, but it is understood they are keen to do more as Britons prepare to welcome refugees under the Government’s Homes for Ukraine scheme.
An insider at Dumfries House said the Prince’s Foundation, a charity that manages the 2,000-acre estate, was actively looking at how it could help Ukrainians with work, courses and accommodation.
