The royal-watchers among you no doubt remember that Prince William and Duchess Catherine welcomed a baby daughter, Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana, on May 2. If you’re more than the casual royal fan, as I am, you may have sent them a baby card, as I did. No, I did not send a gift — I figure they are royals; there is nothing I can send them of a material nature that they could possibly need or appreciate. However, I did want to express my congratulations, so I sent a card with a handwritten note detailing my devotion.
Months passed. I didn’t really expect a response, although I had received one when I sent a card congratulating them on Prince George’s birth. After all, this was the second child. And, they had released the (adorable) photos of Prince George holding Charlotte, saying that those photos were a way of thanking all those who had remembered the family’s new arrival.
But yesterday, excitement reigned on this side of the Atlantic, when mail (make that ROYAL mail) arrived, postmarked “Buckingham Palace.” It was a thank you note from William and Kate!
There was a lovely photo of them leaving the hospital with the new addition to the family. It brought back the excitement of that day. On the back was this sweet sentiment:
How fun is that?
