Birthday Letter from Queen Elizabeth (2015)

I received this letter in the mail yesterday. I had written to Queen Elizabeth for her 89th Birthday. The letter was written by one of her Lady-in-Waiting, Mary Morrison, and looks very similar to other letters I've received from Queen Elizabeth. The Queen thanks me for writing.



The letter also thanks me for sending best wishes on the then upcoming birth of Princess Charlotte of Cambridge, who was born May 2nd. Mary Morrison writes that "The arrival of Princess Charlotte of Cambridge has given much pleasure to the whole Royal Family."

(Princess Charlotte was 4 days old when this letter was written)

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.
