Letter From Prince Harry

This letter is one of the most exciting I've received so far. Usually when you write to Prince Harry for a certain occasion they reply back with a postcard sized photo with a printed message on the back.  

I wrote to Prince Harry, after the announcement that he would be leaving the Armed Forces after 10 years of service, to congratulate him on his hard work and to wish him the best of luck for the future. 

Today, on the day Princess Charlotte of Cambridge was born, I received this reply. This is the first actually letter I have received from Kensington Palace. The letter was written by Harry's Private Secretary, Edward Lane Fox. It's quite brief, but really exciting because it is an actual letter. 

This letter was sent on the 20th of April and arrived May 2nd with means 12 days in transit, which is longer than the normal 5-6 days I usually see from BRF. 

As you can also see, the body of the letter was very carefully placed between the two folds. 



Edward hand signed the letters with "Yours Faithfully, ESLF". Little know fact Edward's middle name is Sackville.

  1. That's so cool! How did you address Prince Harry in your letter? I'm having trouble deciding what to go for, some say'Sir', some say 'His Royal Highness', others say 'Prince Harry'.

    1. How you address Prince Harry in your letter just depends on how formal your letter is. Use what ever you feel comfortable with. A Good Rule of Thumb is just write like you were taking to them in person.
      For the Queen it would always be very formal, Her Majesty the Queen, Your Majesty, Madam, You/you, etc.
      For People like Prince Harry it depends on the situation.
      If it's formal: His Royal Highness Prince Henry/Harry, Your Royal Highness, Sir, You.
      If it's informal: Prince Harry, Harry, you, etc.
